We're coming up on Mother's Day and so planning has begun. DH's family used to have dinner, but BIL screwed that up a few years ago and we've been on our own since. We do our own thing, see MIL if she wants, and mailed cards to my mom.
My parents moved here this year, so I want to invite my mom, dad, and brother's family for a bbq. No idea what bro has been doing with his wife's family so they may not be available. I would like to spend time with my mom. She hasn't had a kid/grandkids around on Mother's Day in a long time.
My mom called my in-laws and found out BIL and SIL and family have decided to leave town. Now she wants to invite my in-laws as BIL isn't here. I'm pretty sure my brother won't make it, and the last thing I want to do on Mother's Day is deal with MIL pushing DH's buttons and FIL not accepting that sometimes DD doesn't want to do the activities he wants to do.
Can I just have my parents over for dinner? Can I never have just my parents again on a holiday? I'm not throwing a party, just want to give mom a nice dinner and see my mom on my Mother's Day.
DH currently has no opinion. As he isn't a planner, he'll think about this much later.
