I heard many family stories over the holiday but was struck most by a mom who told me she finally figured out how her family can have a fun vacation when visiting her mother in law. I was very curious how she went about this. I would love to know how others keep the peace or dont.
This Mom said said her mother-in-law yells and scream whenever her kids or adults leave little things out of place as she is a neat freak. Leaving things around makes the Mother -In law is so anxious that she yells all the time and everyone else is miserable.
Being a family of 5 kids and two adults the mom decided she was going to spend the whole vacation putting things away. She said this made her mother -in law so happy they all had a fun pleasant visit no yelling no screaming. That is of course everyone had fun except this mom who after 10 days came home and slept for a week.. But the Mom said she was “Taking One for the Team!” which I very much admired but not sure I could do?!
Make your mother in law happy to keep the peace or not? I would love to hear what other think about this?
What lengths do you go to or not to keep family happy and is it worth it or not?
