This year is my first Mother's Day. My husband and I decided that we would spend time together, just us and our daughter, ON Mother's Day. Over the span of the weekend, we would do something with my MIL and my mom. We made plans to have my family over on Saturday for dinner. When I talked to my MIL about making plans with them she asked when we could come over on Sunday. So, I explained to her that we decided to do our own thing on Sunday, but that we could see them on Friday or Saturday. She was NOT happy. She just kinda sat there looking at me with this shocked face. It was like she couldn't believe that we wouldn't be spending all of Mother's day with her, (even though we will still be spending ALL of Friday eve with her.) She was clearly not happy about it. My ILs have this thing about entitlement and feeling like it's their right to do things they way they want no matter how my husband and I feel about it. My thing is this: My husband and I have a family now. I'm am mother now. We should be able to start making our family traditions without my MIL getting upset and bent out of shape about it. We are still going to see her that morning because we go to the same church as both her and my parents. So it's not like she won't see us at all. We just won't be spending time with her that day. We'll be doing it on Friday instead. I mean...am I crazy for wanting to spend Mother's day the way that I want?
