So christmas is a really big deal in our house... we love it! Everything about it. The whole family comes to our place and we try to include everyone in everything. Im an only child so my 3 year old and 3 month old are the only grandkids for my parents and my mum is very over the top/controlling regarding them and it often feels like she forgets who the parents are.
One of the most special things is our annual santa visit, this year dh and I sent a text to my mum, dad, mil and sil and invited them to join us taking the boys to see santa so that nobody would miss out on their little faces seeing him. We have booked in at a place where we get a time slot in the room with santa and rudolph on our own... very magical, its next week and everyone said they'd love to come.
So yesterday my mum asked if she could take ds aged 3 out for an hour to look at a truck show that was near by so I said yes and dropped him off, mum text me pictures of him looking at trucks then one of him sat on santas knee face gleaming! I was so sad to miss out so was dh. When she came back I was fuming for the last month when ever we have seen him at shopping centres etc dh and I have said we are having a special visit to santa with nanny etc so we have to wait ans he was fime with it. I told her I was disappointed to miss it and she left in a huff. She does things like this all the time, she takes over. She was funny with me last week because I wrote a letter to santa with him (my own son) and she didn't.
I just told ds what's happening this week guests arriving certain days, carols, lunch out, santa visit etc ans he says but Iv seen santa with grandma. ...
