My husband and i live near my inlaws, and his siblings live here as well. Every Mother's Day and Father's Day (Christmas, thanksgiving, Easter too) is spent at my inlaws home. Because i live 4-12 hrs from my side of the fam we share thanksgiving and easter with my family, so im not spending EVERY holiday with my inlaws. But, my MIL is quite possessive over holidays. And passive aggresively so...This year us daughter in laws and her daughter want to do something for ourselves, by ourselves or with our kids/hubby's on Mother's Day. So my hubby, his brother and sister all decided they would take their mom out for dinner a few nights prior to actual Mother's Day, so they could be with their families on sunday. My mil came up with an excuse, that it didn't work for her. They then offered to take her to breakfast Saturday. That didnt work for her either. Its her typical MO. anyhow, my question for you mamas is how do you all spend the day, are you off with your kids and hubby or by yourself? Do you split the day with your mil or mom? If you dont live near your mom or cant spend it with her, how do you handle the day with your mil? Do you see her? Does hubby just do somethng with her? I need some ideas! Thanks!
