She just likes to complain.

Last year my mil went on and on about how since all her kids are over 18 now, she feels like she shouldn't have to host holidays anymore. Basically saying that since I'm the one with a young child now, it's my turn. And though my house is much smaller than hers, and it would be really cramped, I offered this year to do Christmas at my house. Well actually I said I was going to. And she got all weird. She was like, "but... I always do Christmas at my house." Saying, "do you think you have enough space for everyone to come?" Obviously no, I don't. But she had said she didn't want to do it anymore so I offered. But really what she wanted was to make me feel bad and have an excuse to complain, but she didn't actually want anything to change. So of course we are doing things her way. As always. But that's fine with me. My house won't be the one getting trashed.

Maybe she just wanted the offer made but went about it wrong?

Maybe she doesn't feel appreciated?

My MIL is the same way, but we already decided that my DHS family is not welcomed at our Christmas dinner.

She sounds like a miserable person who just likes to complain. Sorry momma.

I agree with the other posters, maybe she was just looking for someone to offer from feeling unappreciated? Either way though, it is pretty annoying lol
