    I don't know, if it were my mum, I probably would've been surprised and asked what her problem

    I've just spent the last four months living with my folks and my toddler and we didn't have any issues - it was lovely actually but I think I'm very lucky in the parental department!

    4 months... You (unlike me) probably have mature, reasonable, easy going parents... 2 nights is my go-nutso limit

    I'm glad you called her on the passive aggressive head shaking - her opinion wasn't welcome or asked for.
    I think calling people on their BS behaviour makes them think twice about keeping it going. Obviously you pick your battles and this was one. Good for you!

    Same. I would probably throw in the adjective normal too. My mother and I parent in polar opposites and she hates my rather rambunctious son she believes that children should be seen and not heard. 2 days and I'm on the verge of kicking her out of my house. Thank god she lives far enough away.
