  1. Final MIL fight, should husband and kids go to her holiday gatherings?

    So sick of my MIL. I am not a kid, we have been married 20 years but have two elementary kids.

She babysits and always goes against our rules for sugar, naps, etc. This last fight I found out she was trying to change the babysitting schedule without telling me, the mom.
