Dh and I renewed our vows abroad last year, and really want to go back to the same resort for a holiday with dd next year.

Last year was lovely, but it was a bit exhausting making sure all of our guests (20 plus us) were enjoying their holidays and having a good time. The up side though was we did get a fair amount of time to ourselves while dd was off on sleepovers with mil, my parents and my dsis and her children. This time round it will just be the three of us, and we will hae time to really make the most of the resort. (It is an all inclusive Holiday Village)

I mentioned the holiday to Mil last night, and that we were really looking forward to it. I've just spoken to DH and apparently Mil rang him this morning and has asked of she can come too. Shock DH thinks this would be a great idea, she has apparently offered to babysit dd for a couple of nights so we can go out.

AIBU to think that actually, this sounds like a really bad idea and say no?

OP, is it a holiday village starting with A?

These threads make me feel a bit better tbh, then I know I'm not alone in the pain my mil causes with her fucked up behaviour.

I found out she had bought a full length, ivory lace, designer dress to wear to mine and dh's reg office wedding. I asked dh to have a word with her as I really didn't want her stood there in white lace (which is what I wore). So she ordered the same black. And wore that to the whole July was pretty grim.

Thing is although keith's mil is crazy, she doesn't seem to be one of those 'you stole my son!' Mils- like mine is, those get tedious real quick. Do correct me if I'm wrong though.

It does begin with an A, yes Smile

Mil definitely isn't a 'you stole my son' type, except when she wants any DIY done, including changing lightbulbs, in which case she is straight on the phone to DH

Just say no, you want it to be just for the three of you this year. I don't think that's unreasonable especially when you just had a big family holiday recently.

It is strangely addictive! There is no way I would do it if I was getting married but some of them are good to watch
