We are very clear about the the things that absolutely matter, the rest we have learned to let go.

They have their own way of doing things and love to spoil her. She knows when she goes to her grandparents house that she can get away with a lot more. lol

We've found if we establish a few things that we are absolutely firm on, and are flexible on the rest they are pretty understanding and will respect our wishes.

I haven't really had anyone in the family have a strong disagreement to what I do. My mother has expressed her preferences but will mostly follow what I say. When it came to starting them on milk when my husband and I clearly said we were not doing that yet, she just continued to try albeit slower and smaller amounts. I didn't argue cause I just knew that when she went home, I was going to continue with what I wanted. It wasn't going to hurt them, what she was doing, so I wasn't going to pick that fight.

for the most part, we all agree on how these boys are being raised.

not with my parents.... My ILs never watch my kids.. As long as they have my SILs kids.. It is out of sight out of mind with my kids.. My hubby has been back almost 2 months and in those 2 months they have not called to check and see how the kids are.... But hey it is something I am used to...

With my mom I told her that if anything happened to my daughter b/c she didn't follow my instructions that it would not bode well for our relationship. That worked pretty well.

The IL's are another story, but my MIL is a nurse so I don't worry too much b/c if something happens she'll be there to take care of it.
