The woman is insane. I reluctantly invited my inlaws to Nathan's birthday party again this year b/c I felt it was the right thing to do. Well my 3 year old niece was helping him open his packages (no big deal to anyone) and MIL kept saying "Adi move out of the way" "will you move so I can get a picture"...you get the idea...she was being rude about it to a toddler. So finally MIL grabs Adi's arm and physically moves her so she can get her **** perfect picture. My mom almost let her have it...Adi's mom was pissed and said we're leaving that's it...I forced her to stay but she stayed in the kitchen away from the crazy woman after this. I was none too pleased either. I told my husband it was bs and he pulled her aside and told her about it and of course she didn't do anything wrong. She didn't mean anything bad blah blah blah....My husband told her she needed to be more aware of what she was doing and saying and stop acting like a b*tch. Of course then she was in a mood for the rest of the day....I swear next year she is not coming when everyone else does.
ugh - been there done that - but it's usually MY kids that she's doing it to during cousins bdays ----
here's the thing I keep coming back to: It's MY family and I don't want her to ruin our events anymore. At the events at my home now, when she does come , she is practically ignored b/c people just don't want to be around her....
If she has to come again, put a sign with her name on it on a seat in the BACK of the room FAR away from the presents - maybe a "Kids only" upfront type of thing
