"Welcome to -- When adult children marry and leave home, life can sometimes get more complex instead of simpler.  Being a mother-in-law or daughter-in-law can be tough.  How do we extend love and support to our mothers-in-law, adult children, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, and grandchildren without interfering?  What do we do when there are communication problems?  How can we ask for help when we need it without being a burden?  And how do our family members feel about these issues?  We invite you to join our free forum, read some posts... and when you're ready...share your challenges and wisdom."

Yes Anna at least you knew your mil would not stay long to feed your son so you were prudent about not telling her anything.  What was done was done.  I am imaginaning your face when you saw your son with his chubby cheeks lol.  My dil would have killed me if I had fed cakes to her childen.  She doesnt even given them cake often.  When they go to a party and she permits them to have a peace of cake, she removes the frosting from it lol.  Sometimes they cry because they want the frosting also yum yum. 

My gs (4) asks me for a piece of chocolate and tells me he will not tell momy.  It is so hard on me sometimes, because I want to make them happy but must respect rules.  Once in a while I do break the rules but tell dil....and she takes it well.

Well Anna, I hope for the prompt recovery of your dad.  You and all the ladies here have been my family this year and I thank you for sharing and being such a wonderful kind person.

May God Bless You
Merry Christmas
