We had our daughters sweet 16 party over the weekend (shes a july 4th baby). For the most part it went very well once the rain cleared up. We set up food buffett style in the house and sat in the damp chairs outside under the canopies. She had a good turnout. My side of the family didnt come but thats what i love about my inlaws they made sure they were here. They are all very good about coming to the kids parties no matter whos house its at. Did talk to hub about his youngest sisters kids. Her boys are very destructive she was upset I would not allow them to sit on the furniture in the living room. When hub asked me why I told him they use their pants as a toilet rather than embarrass them in front of our daughters friends i took them aside and told them to sit on the floor and stay off the furniture. They are 7 and 13. My sister in law makes excuses for them saying they have autism issues and I am insensitive. I say no I do not want my furniture to smell I do not allow even our own kids to eat in there. I told her in the future if it upsets her that much she should have them wear diapers so they dont feel like they are being called out. Instead she said she wont come here if I cant treat them nicer. UGHHHH I just want my house to be clean and not smell like human waste after they visit.
