Ever since my wedding, when my mom and mil got into before I walked down the aisle, about how mil did more than mom since mom lived in a different state, there has always been an unspoken competition between them. They are civil to eachother, but seem to always try to one up the other. Mil watched Jocelyn while DH and I got dinner, it was about 2hrs total. My friends are having a Halloween party tomorrow and my mom is going to watch Jocelyn. I told her is be gone maybe an hour at the least-I've been super tired and wanna try to get some sleep-my mom says well mil got her for longer than an hour, we want to also. Ugh. I've told DH that unfortunately joss is going to be thrown into the middle of this stupid battle. We've told everyone to be civil now that she's here, but it's not helping. We've told everyone that this year, we're having holidays here so everyone can see joss and she'll be at home if she needs a nap. Christmas will be interesting with the battle for best first Christmas gifts for her. Any suggestions on dealing with them?
