My mother in law visits every weekend. I love the fact that she spends time with my children and even helps out with babysitting if my husband and I have to work or would like to go out. here is the problem. My oldest is almost 15. When my mother in law starting visiting and staying with us every weekend my oldest daughter was only 7. She would share her room and bed and even sleep with her Nana when she would come over. Now that my daughter is older she does not like the idea of sharing her room. I completely understand with her but my husband feels that my daughter is being selfish. and that our daughter should just sleep on the couch no complaints. My mother in law only lives 20 minutes away! I suggested to my husband that we give up our room for his mother. I think he forgets what it was like to be a teenager. This situattion has caused alot of problems between my husband and I. My mother in law is well aware of this situation. Please help!
