But my husband and I adopted 2 children this year and they have never met. Now so I wants to bring her niece with them and I'm feeling upset as wanted it to be just family as it's my children's first Christmas with us and wanted them to get to know cousins without anyone else

Sorry, your OP isn’t very clear.... more detail would be helpfulwink

Your SIL wants to bring her niece to yours for xmas? How old is she? Where are her parents?

Bit confusing..

Your brother and SIL are coming over and want to bring their own child?

Changename1988 Tue 17-Oct-17 19:47:22

Sorry basically brother and his family are coming which I'm excited for as first time they will meet my children. But SIL wants to bring her niece. We hardly see them all anyway and last 3 visits they have brought some of SIL family with them. Aibu to just want them.

This is really confusing.

Your brother and SIL are coming with their kids and their niece as well? If it's only one extra person, I think you're being a bit unreasonable.

Topseyt Tue 17-Oct-17 19:47:45

I don't get what the question is from your OP.

Could you explain please? Not psychic.

NancyDonahue Tue 17-Oct-17 19:48:04

Are they actually staying with you, op?

KissesAX Tue 17-Oct-17 19:48:14

I think the OP is saying she wanted her bridge and SIL's children to bond with hers on their own as cousins but now someone she isn't related to is coming and she doesn't want the SIL's niece there

Changename1988 Tue 17-Oct-17 19:48:58

Her parents will be at home in the other country. the niece just wants to come to England at Christmas time

iklboo Tue 17-Oct-17 19:49:54

Sorry, cross post.

PurpleDaisies Tue 17-Oct-17 19:50:20

How old is the niece? Where are they all staying?

TheKitchenWitch Tue 17-Oct-17 19:51:37

How old are all the children?

Changename1988 Tue 17-Oct-17 19:52:35

Her Niece is 14. My nieces are 3 and my children are 5 and 3. They are staying with my mum but we would all be together Christmas day

Piratesandpants Tue 17-Oct-17 19:53:26

Eh? Are brother and SIL married?
This reminds me of the tests we had to do to get into the grammar school....

Oly5 Tue 17-Oct-17 19:53:35

You'd exclude the niece?! Really?
Yabu
Show some xmas spirit, the niece may well dote on your kids and they'll have a lovely time

Maelstrop Tue 17-Oct-17 19:54:38

Don't think it's up to you if they're staying at your mum's.

MadMags Tue 17-Oct-17 19:55:53

What???

WitchesHatRim Tue 17-Oct-17 19:56:15

YABVU. from what I can understand

unfortunateevents Tue 17-Oct-17 19:56:36

So your mum is hosting all these people and you think you get to beto who comes to spend Christmas at her house?! Are you for real?

StandardNameHere Tue 17-Oct-17 19:56:37

I think if they arnt staying with you then it's not your decision to make.
If it's that much of a deal breaker for you then maybe just have Christmas Day with your partner and children.
I can't see how you should decide who attends Christmas Day at your parents house.
I also think you are being a bit mean.
