My Mother In law lives with me and my husband. (hooray-__-) and every time a holiday passes she has a fit if he doesn't acknowledge her. Christmas he bought our son a bunch of gifts and what not and bought me a new purse that was pretty pricey-she had a fit. Her birthday came around in January, she'd gotten mad with him and left for the week. His aunt tried to convince him to throw her birthday party but he refused because he goes to work at 1am and that would run into his sleep time. My son went to my Uncle's bday party which was the day after her birthday, so when she returned home the following weekend, she automatically assumed it was my birthday. She cursed him about for buying me balloons and not buying her any and she went on a full out spat. She called her sisters and told them I'd turned her son against her and they got into a big argument-over balloons. My birthday just past the other day (3 months later lol) and now with mothers day coming up, I'm worried. She's been playing nice, the past 2 days in expectancy of something spectacular I guess, even though we're paying her rent and she pays nothing to live here, and I'm considering telling him to get me nothing. I don't feel like the big blown out arguments with the name calling over a box of chocolates. She's very immature and every little things makes her mad, even when I fix dinner. Should I tell him to skip mom's day for me to avoid any craziness?
