    My sister-in-law, who bugs me to NO END, is coming into town tonight. AGAIN. She has come here like three times in the past year and stayed a month each time. I'm sick of having to deal with her! (She lives in WA) She will conveniently be here for two of my kids' birthdays, including my daughter's first birthday. I do NOT want her at the party. I wanted a low-profile party with no bells or whistles really. She is one of those people that will tell you why you are doing something wrong as a parent at every opportunity. I don't want that at her party. So...do I move the party into October? What do I do?

    She isn't staying with us. She is staying with my MIL. But they come as a pair when she is in town. And since MIL is obviously invited to Emma's little party (was supposed to be grandparents and great grandparents ONLY), obviously SIL is going to tag along...

    On Emma's actual birthday, September 25th. There is no return flight set for my SIL yet, grr, but MIL wants her here the entire month. Even if I push the party back a week, that's October 1st, which is too close for comfort. So I'd have to push it all the way to October 8th, which totally sucks...

    Having had my fair share of IL related grievances, I'd either move the party (not like Emma's going to care) or not invite MIL. After years of dealing with IL crap, I've decided that my happiness is more important than my relationship with my ILs. DH agrees for the most part because he has to live with me.

    I agree with Erin. Not worth the drama if it's really that bad.

    I'd move the party. It sucks, but if you'd be happier to not have her there then I'd move the party. Emma isn't going to care. I wish I could schedule Lyla's party so my SIL couldn't be there, but she LIVES in the same town as us so I have no choice. Maybe next year if we get moved to the new city.

    I know what it's like to have an SIL who annoys you to no end and is FULL of parenting advice and suggestions for EVERYTHING! So if I had the option I'd move the party if I could avoid her.

    Do what you gotta do, there's no reason you should have to put up with her on what is a very special day! I agree with Erin and Anna, I know her actual birthday is special to YOU, but you could do something really special with Emma on that day, spend the day telling her all about her birth day, take some special pictures or something and then move the celebration to a different day. I take my kids' birthday's very personal, it's our special day, mine and their's and somewhat DH's but honestly, I'm selfish with birthday's (I did a lot of work that day!) and I wouldn't want anyone "ruining" that special day.

    But, in the end, you have to choose between the day itself or the celebration and I don't envy you making that decision!
