Christmas with a family who really is not family.
So Christmas is coming up and I am dreading having my mother in law and sister in law over. Every Christmas since we have been here they only get my youngest son a gift and the older two don't get anything. My two older children come from a previous marriage so they are not my husband's children. But he has been around since my oldest was 3 years old. So in essence they are kind of like his children. My mother in law said that because they are not her grand children she doesn't feel like she should buy them anything. Now my family back at home buy my step daughters(2) gifts and have never met the girls. So I was brought up differently to how his family is used to being. I ask God every time that I am around them to put the words in my mouth, because I can become a ghetto ass Mexican real fast; meaning no offense to the other Mexicans that read this blog, but that is who I can be. And I don't want to give her reasons to start her crap or to start her whispering on the side. She does a lot of whispering on the side and it drives me nuts. Why can she not be woman enough to tell me to her face. I really wish she would act her age and not her shoe size.
