To think 25 yr old DSD is old enough to make her own Xmas plans?

DSD is 25 and has lived with me and DH for nearly 6 months after a pretty big falling out with her mum.

We are planning on visiting DHs relatives over Xmas- except DSD doesn't want to go. She wants to spend time with her boyfriend and her friends and i think she is old enough to make her own decisions.

Shes not a massive Xmas dinner fan anyway so i was going to cook her er favourite tea to heat up for Xmas day and leave her a bottle of wine to drink and give her presents before we.

DH has got a titty lip on.

No that’s fine. Why isn’t she going to get boyfriend’s?

A titty lip? grin

She’s 25! Does your DH want to drag her round his rellies like a sulky teenager?

She is a grown woman, and has been for some time.

I'm a 26 year old mother with my own family and my mum still doesn't let me do what I want to do on Christmas day.
It causes huge resentment and I constantly feel under massive pressure. Ruins Christmas for me.
Let her do what's she wants don't ruin it for her like my mum does ever year.

If she's 25 she's also old enough not to have her tea cooked for her, to lay in her own bottles and to pick out her presents under the tree where all right-thinking people place them, surely?

What does DH think should happen? She go with you, or you all stay at home together? Or something else?

She’s a fully grown adult.

What does DH want her to do?

I’d leave her to it. She sounds like she knows what she wants to do.

You sound like a fabuously indulgent stepmum! How nice of you. Your husband needs to get a grip. She is 25! YANBU

Are you scared of your mum, anxietystrikes ? It's hard but why not say "this year we'll be having christmas by ourselves, as a family. See you on Boxing Day?"

Crunchymum Tue 21-Nov-17 20:30:51

DH's relatives are her relatives too?

K1092902 Tue 21-Nov-17 20:30:53

Basically yes- he wants to drag her around like a sulky teenager. We are only going for 2 nights but she will be miserable and it is her Xmas as well!

Namechangetempissue Tue 21-Nov-17 20:31:08

Yoi sound great! Would love you as a SM. YANBU

Tell him not to be absurd. She’s not 12.

Mrsmadevans Tue 21-Nov-17 20:34:47

Good God she is 25 ! Tell DH she will prob have a whale of a time with all her friends at the party she will throw in your absence lol

HeebieJeebies456 Tue 21-Nov-17 20:35:28

She's 25 years old.......why isn't she living in her own place?

You both need to stop infantilising her............

NoSquirrels Tue 21-Nov-17 20:35:43

Eh? 25 year old boy ants to hang with friends at Christmas and your DH thinks she should come away with him ... why, exactly? Did he miss the whole 18th birthday = adult thing?

Runningbutnotscared Tue 21-Nov-17 20:35:50

This place is full of odd sayings today. I hated 'butt hurt' and now there's 'titty lip'. WTF is a 'titty lip'?

ForagingForFaerieGold Tue 21-Nov-17 20:36:19

Titty lip.- Sulky face, pouting etc. To get your own way. And yes, he's being ridiculous.

NoSquirrels Tue 21-Nov-17 20:36:22

Not sure what boy ants are! DYAC.

VimFuego101 Tue 21-Nov-17 20:38:29

Titty lip grin

Why would he want to make her spend Christmas somewhere she doesn't want to be? What you're suggesting sounds fine.

Wilburissomepig Tue 21-Nov-17 20:39:36

No of course you're not being unreasonable and the fact you have used the quite fabulous 'titty lip' phrase, means I like the cut of your jib anyway. grin
