I have always been a single mom with the father not involved at all. We have always went to my parents house the night before Christmas and spent the night, woke up there, and did the whole presents thing; then we go to my grandma's house with the rest of our family.
My children will be 6 and 7 this year and my oldest has expressed unhappiness that we don't do it at our house and that she would like to.
I always did it because I felt sad, I guess?, in a way, that it was just me and them so we went there. This past April, my dad passed away, so now it's just my mom there.That may have something to do with it. I know I need to transition them into coming to our house at some point anyway but I am sure it's going to upset my mother. I was going to invite her to stay at my house, if we did, and she could do the whole Christmas thing with us here.
What do you think? I need opinions.
