I feel like this is a mean thing say. Because I do want my mom to be involved in my kids lives. And i'm glad that she wants to be. My husbands mother wont even babysit for us, she says its just too hard with two of them. Anyway, my mom use to be way super oppinionated about me and my kids and how I raise them. And she would often step in if she didnt agree. I hated it. She has since, backed off quite a bit. However she co.stantly gets angry with me if I take my kids somewhere without inviting her as well. I'm talking places like the zoo, the dairy farm, the apple orchard, or the hands on museaum. We have memberships at almost all of hose places we visit them often, usually more than once a month. Its not like we only go once a year, or once a lifetime. Is it so bad for my hisband and me to take our kids somewhere special and not invite her? We usually do include her, but once in a while we just like to go as our small family. And she gets so mad at me. I dont understand.
