Thank you! My MIL is moving to our town this summer, from a province away. My DH is her only child and she ADORES all of us to the point of smothering. She is a great, sweet lady and its my responsibility to give her boundaries for our new, closer relationship and I am worried I will be a chicken about it.....
If I am firm at first I know it will be best for all of us, I believe she will be respectful, wish me luck!

Good luck Kaypea!

Awesome links in-mommy! I hope everyone (including myself ) can do this with their husbands, friends, co-workers... too.

Does anyone have some tips that have worked for them in the past to add as well?
