So...I have a question for ya.
Do you think I am trying to be controlling? In July (don't remember the exact time frame but around there), I decided that I would have my son, Jackson's, first birthday party on Dec. 5th.
I decided on this date because I am due to have Baby #2 on November 20th, and I wanted to make sure that his birthday celebration wasn't canceled because I was in the hospital.
In July, I let my sister and father in law know of the specific date so they would be able to be there. My sister lives in Colorado (a couple states away), and my father in law often goes hunting over the weekends in November/December.
My father told me yesterday that I was trying to control other peoples schedules by having his birthday party about 20 days after his actual birthday party. Do you agree or disagree?
My family and I have had some difficult times dealing with my sister. My sister, Jessica, and I do not get a long. We tolerate each other, but we try to communicate as little as possible. It is kind of a long story, but we have been dealing with this for years. The "peak" of dislike (I don't really dislike her, but I am struggling for an appropriate word) was in Jan. 2008....and it has really been downhill since then. I feel that my parents shelter her because of some of the choices that she has made in the past, and try their best to not upset her.
Anyway, maybe I will explain more of my sorted family past in the future.....but, do you think that I am trying to be controlling? I would appreciate any and all advice ;o)
