MIL texted me and asked what "we" are doing for Thanksgiving
Well I haven't texted back but "we" aren't doing anything. Me and DH trade off years and this year is with my family, we are going to my mom's with all of my siblings, their spouses and their kids. We have 3 young kids (7, 3 and 2 months old). This is SIL's first Thanksgiving married and they will be with her inlaws so I guess MIL and FIL are on their own.
Asking my mom if we can invite them is not an option. MIL is a bitch to my mom because the kids like my mom better. Mom keeps her house child proof and has toys and actually plays with them, MIL keeps breakables all over the place, no toys and when the kids are over, they are expected to sit at the table with the adults and keep quite and not touch anything. So I am not going to ask my mom to ruin the holiday for herself by inviting MIL.
I am thinking about just texting back "remember, we will be at my mom's house". We will be home from my mom's by about 6 (we do a lunch for Thanksgiving) so I might invite them over for dessert and coffee but we will have to see about that.
I mean, I don't want to sound mean but what else can I do? I mean we can't be at their beck and call every time SIL isn't available.
Dh doesn't like dealing with his mom because, well, he thinks she is a bitch too, he said "she texted you not me, you deal with her" lol
