We are putting together a second nursery here for my grandbaby who will be born in 3 months. When DIL goes back to work she will be dropping him off for dh and i to babysit.

We are having a hard time compromising and hasnt liked any of my ideas and totally has ignored the fact that its my house and im the one buying everything. She already has a nursery all done up at her place that she had fun designing.

It's your house. I wouldn't really even let her in on the plans so much. I'd give her a review of exactly whats going to be in there and give her no choice to help choose what goes in there.

You're house grandma!! Enjoy your grandbaby!!

your house, your funds, your decision.  if she's this difficult to deal with about the decor in your home, you might want to rethink the amount of stress she's going to be laying at your feet once she returns to work.

oh, and it's not "for them", it's a nursery that will remain in your home and probably be used by future grandchildren as well. 

oy.
