i am constantly being asked by my mil and my own parents the same questions over and over again, and having to repeat the same answers.
i have now been asked 5 times by mil what are our plans for xmas day? which i reply that we will be staying at home and celebrating xmas with our son as a family. i ignored the second and third time as she had just forgotten or something but i am now starting to think that it might be something to do with not saying what she want to hear ie we are comeing to you.
i have to admit that up until last year that i have worked on xmas day due to my job (hotels) so my oh went to spend xmas with them. Last year they decided that they wanted to go out for xmas which was completley fine but due to me being quite ill during my pregnancy we decided we would spend it at home as we thought spending £100 on a meal for us both and me not really able to eat anything on the menu was a waste of money.
my oh admitted he loved being able to cook what he wanted on xmas day and eat when he wanted. which i can see exactly how he feels due to how my xmas days where spent. As a child we had to spend our xmas day at my grandparents every year but i always remembered that all i wanted to do was stay at home and play with my new toys, and not select a couple to take with us to grandmas.
we have comprimised by saying we will pop round for a couple of hours on boxing day after the boys get back from the footie. personally i would rather them come to us as its goign to be near baby's bedtime when he get really fractious but we dont have the space in our house for 6 extra people.
what would you all do? any ideas as i am just giving one example here there are many more times that we have repeatedly been asked over and over again the same thing but not necessarally giving them the answer they want to hear
