Okay here is my predicament

And it has to do with my girls’ starting Kindergarten. My babies. Starting School. Their first day of real school. As Kindergartner’s. In uniforms. Aren’t I dealing with this well? :-)

So, the girls’ starting school = BIG DEAL TO MOM! I’m feeling very selfish about this rite of passage. This time will never come to pass again and guess what? Just guess what? My Mother-in-Law wants to invade my bubble – she wants to be there to share the first day of school experience and I don’t want her there. These are my babies. She saw her own babies off to their first day of school now it’s my turn and really I don’t feel like sharing. Grrrr. I know I know I’m being very - not nice - but goll darn it don’t do this to me. Don’t put me in this predicament. IT’S THEIR FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL! It is OUR day.

So what do I do? Do I tell her no? Do I tell her she can stop by right before they leave for school (which could be a bad thing depending on how things are going and how scared they are feeling)? Do I tell her she can come over another day later in the week? What do I do? Am I being unreasonable to NOT want to share this day? Tell me. I’m confused!

Okay I’ll be anxiously awaiting your wisdom so let me know what you think. I need suggestions – seriously!

Ang...You might be surprised by this but I get where you are coming from here. One question...Was she there on Alex's first day of school? If not, then you could play the guilt card and tell her how unfair that she should attend the girls but not have done the same for Alex. I wouldn't recommend this however..Hopefully I didn't open up a whole other can of worms with that one! I would just tell her that you were hoping just for a special time with the HotY, You and your kids. Invite her for dinner that night so the girls can tell her all about their day. Just tell her the truth and do it swiftly so you don't have to think about it any longer!
