Turkey day drama... Dee♡ 2 kids; 1 angel baby; .., IN, United States 6097 posts

I’ve tried to type this out thoroughly three times and it logs me out every time and erases it so here is a super short version. I can fill in details later. Super Happy

Basically, wwyd if MIL planned a thanksgiving dinner the same exact day and time as FILs even though she was made aware BEFORE planning? You also try to get her to change it to the following day so you could make it and she refuses because they’re going to celebrate her DH and BILs bdays (even though it’s YOUR bday LOL). Also, wwyd if BIL’s gf (NOT BIL, NOT MIL) TELLS YOU she’s going to ask your ex to get your child on Thanksgiving since you can’t make it?

TIA

I’d go with my original plan. And let your ex know before she can. 

Sounds like your in-laws love drama

That’s exactly the plan. Super Happy
They (BIL, MIL, and his gf) all said it’d be really nice for all of us to be together while MIL is here. DH told them if it was that important then they wouldn’t have planned a dinner the same exact day/time as FIL’s. It’s so frustrating because any other time she visits we are the last of her priorities. She’s had us take the week off work and/or pull kids from daycare just for us to see her for a grand total of MAYBE an hour or two the entire week she visits. 

I believe they're just being spiteful because BIL and his gf have been on FIL’s shit list. MIL just likes to try and do whatever she can to piss FIL and his wife off and now she has someone on “her side”. They’ve been divorced over 12 years and have both remarried. Both kids are grown adults. Yet shit like this still happens. Shy

Time for them to grow up. I know of ex couples that have been separated for far less time, that do holidays together!! Imagine that.
