My daughter is turning two in a few months so I am getting a head start on planning I believe I had posted about this a while ago but i'm still having problems.
SO's family is rough, and controlling they don't get along with anyone outside of their family really, and well, my family seems to be the enemy since they keep DD while I finish Nursing school. His family is basically just jealous of the time my family gets with her, when they make no effort to see her. I have to take her everywhere to see everyone. And clearly I don't have the time for that!
So here is my problem... should i have the party with both families or just have it separate? my family is fine being around them but his family will find something to bicker about.
I'm reluctant to have it separate because I don't want to give them the satisfaction of being in control of their own party for her. They act like they are her mother in that position. And try to make me be in the background. They will flaunt about who they are to her and it's just obnoxious and DD hates it. She doesn't like being around them because of how loud and ignorant they are. She likes to go off into another room and it just be the two of us.
Has anyone had any experiences like this that can help me out?
