every year i spend cristmas day at my dads with my family and my partner spends christmas at his mums house with his family.
now we have our daughter we decided that we would have our own little family christmas dinner at our house (this will be my daghters 1st xmas) just me my partner and our daughter.
we decided on this because we would rather upset both familes then only one.
because if my daughter goes with her dad to his family on xmas my parents will be upset and the same if she came with me to my parents.
we thought about spending a little time at each families but there houses are just too far away and it would meen that most of the day would be spent traveling not spending good quality family time.
so we want christmas at our house then the day after christmas we was going to do train jurneys to visit both the familys.
i told my mum the plan and she is being so non-understanding and just genraly not very nice about it.
we havent told my partners parents about our plan for christmas yet because we think she might act the same.
what shoud i do ? and how can i make my mum understand its just more fair on everyone if we spend it on our own at home.
sorry bit long, n probably a bit confusing.
