and tell them to stay home if you don't want them around without making your DH/SO mad?
Good luck! Thankfully, my MIL lives a little farther away now, but when she lived in the same town as us (and the same county) she was at our house daily. When our youngest started school I would go drop the kids off and when I got back, there she was at our house waiting for me at least 3 days a week. It was horrible. It got to where I would stop coming home. I found errands to run and spent hours at the library. When she finally figured out I wasn't coming home first thing in the morning, she would wait and come over later. There were days when I would park a block down the street in a city parking lot and walk to our house so she didn't know I was home. I just couldn't deal with her day in and day out. I never figured out how to make her stay away, I just made myself stay away (or seem like I wasn't there). Not the best solution, but talking with her didn't work.
