Help... when I was in school , not so many years ago, they did not offer any Mother in law classes! Well at it this point in my life... I sure could use some etiquette education... Let me explain...
A month ago my son called me and stated that his lovely bride ,Laura, would like to host Thanksgiving at thier house! I was elated , and honored that the kids are starting thier own Holiday Traditions after only two years of Marraige.. you see the past
5 years they have been together, they have split the holidays between her parent and us!
As I sat and pondered over what to bring, many, many of my sons favorite Thanksgiving treats came to mind. There is his ... always must have... mom's Cornbread Dressing and gravy, mom's Mac and Cheese, Jim's Ceasar Salad, Pumpkin pie and , of course
Mom's Chocolate Cake!
In all my upcoming cooking glory I, excitedly call my DIL and give her the list of what I'll be bringing. After hanging up the phone... I felt a unfamiliar Angst in the pit of my stomach... I don't know if you noticed, but It seems I am cooking everything
but the Bird! I feel so bad at this moment and really don't know how to rectify this, after all my Time Machine is in the shop and my Auto correct in the old noggin is on the Fritz again!
I am calling on all my veteran Mother in Laws to come to my rescue... even if you are not a mother in law yet, but had a over the top MIL like myself with no prior experience, do something like this to you... you input would be just as helpful!
If anyone has a MIL faux paux to share... might make me feel better!
