and I am so glad we finally have a place to get it!! I am planning the baptism of my son, and I KNOW that MIL is going to try to take it over, or create her own invitations and give them to random people (ahem, she did this for our WEDDING). We haven't told her yet about when the baptism will be, but I know this woman all too well, and she won't let me enjoy any of it. She ruined my engagement to DH, my wedding planning, my wedding itself, most of my pregnancy, and now anytime I say something about my time with my son, she craps on it or compares it to everything SHE ever did when her sons were born. Oy ve.
Just a thought, don't tell her until the week before the baptism that way she won't have time to sent out her own invites.
Or sit her down and say this is our day and its our baby if you can;t respect our wishes then don't come.[/b]
I have SERIOUSLY thought about sending the invite late, but DH wouldn't appreciate it. He is under their spell most of the time. It takes me getting REALLY crazy for him to see how freakin nuts they are. But I will not hesitate to tell her to back off, if necessary.
Another thing is to not even invite her till right before after you have ALL the plans made and when she tries to offer her $.02 tell her everything is set, come and enjoy herself instead of feeling like she needs to do something.
Thank you KimberlyD0 for my absolutely beautiful siggy!
