GI-

I have to agree with JJ on the options- let it continue and deal with it, or adress the other Grandma and accept the potential fall out.

You may also want to deal with "family business" at other specific times and not at a holiday gathering.

And why did this all of a sudden become a problem?? Ten years and a habit is ingrained. The other grandma is as much a fixture in your son's family as his wife and their children (yes, even the one that isn't blood relation). I don't feel sorry for your situation but I do feel sorry for you, Gi. If advise is hard to digest, it's usually because it's brutally honest and likely the right advise to follow.

The other Grandma is fine with it and understands the one on one G-ma time, it's the DIL that is making a fuss.

Wrong, we discussed it the DIL and MIL totally understood. And then all of a sudden the day before our get together the DIL went balistic. The MIL is still ok, thinks her daughter has blown it all out of proportion.

GI - your story changes more than I don't know what. It is almost like you're making it up as you go along.

Really? If you read the whole thing it is very consistent. People that have came in on the converstion in the middle and not getting the entire picture are making asumptions and that changes the reactions. Just like the old game telephone by the time you get to the last person the whole story is different.

GI-

If I understand this correctly, you are saying the other G-ma and DIL were fine with your request that she not attend this gathering, and suddenly your DIL was not ok with it. Is that a fair summary?

The real question is what did DIL do with said special ham?

OK. Not sure what the ham has to do with it, but moving on...

Some of your posts seemed to attack the other Gma, which IMHO brought it to a level of you not liking her. Regardless, your initial post was asking whether you were selfish for making the request of the other G-ma not to attend the function, and most feel you are being selfish with that request.

As far as your DIL flip flopping, only she can explain that.

Not sure but I suppose she made dinner at home with it. Good thing I had a turkey unthawed, and improvised alot. With just my kids, grandkids and hubby we have 26 people.

I want to know what is so special about the ham.

Do we need to start a ham thread in the Cooler?

Doesn't unthawed really mean frozen? As in, it's not thawed any more?
