I have a delima I really need help with. I have 3 kids (2 from a previous marriage) ever since my youngest was born (2011) my mother in law has asked to come over on Christmas morning to see his reaction to santa leaving presents. I understood an agreed the first 2 years but this year her boyfriend's daughter is going to be in town. She is asking to still come over on Christmas morning, I feel odd letting them with his daughter but she insists the girl only wants to see my youngest son, nevermind the rest of us or my older two boys (which is another discussion in itself).
The boyfriend is actually a fiance and has been in the picture for a very long time but his daughter has only met me 3 times. I offered to let my mom in law bring her gifts to the house too so I wouldn't feel as ackward about the situation, she kind of laughed at me and said they would not be brining their gifts to my house to open but would open them when they got home. My husband doesn't care if they are there but I just feel like it should be my family. We will also be at their house on Christmas Eve and then my family will be over to my house on Christmas afternoon so it's not like we won't see them.
Help! What should I do? and I have told my husband but it really doesn't seem to bother him and he just ignores me thinking I will get over it.
