Ok, I’ve been a volunteer for decades.

Not clear on WHY you cannot go with him if the timing is right…

Lol, I don’t buy the bit you’d have “nothing” to do.

Political Campaigns (no matter the level) ALWAYS have lots that needs to be done.  And an extra set of hands at the Campaign Office would be helpful…

Even if it means just making Coffee, coalating papers, etc.

PLUS it would give you the opportunity to see your Hubby (well more than you do now), Work on your Spanish, and show that you support the Inlaws & Family.

That is what I’d be doing…

Pitching in.

Hope this helps,

TO @newname_99:  Sounds, like a plan.

YES, in the UK… Mothering Sunday is in March.

In the USA & Canada Mothers Day is tomorrow, 2nd Sunday in May.

From what I’ve read by GOOGLING – Mothers Day in Mexico – it is ALWAYS on May 10th (no matter what day of the week) there.

Other than that the tradition looks a lot like the rest of NA… and YES here altho Moms are primary (certainly where I am in Canada)… in recent years it has become more of a wide-spread event where MILs are also honoured (or anyone who is a Mom really)

Hope this helps,

I think you need to draw a line in the sand. Say to him that you are newlyweds, and you want to spend some quality time with him. Maybe he can go help every second weekend? Make it clear that you have no issue with him spending time with his family, but you are his family too and you also need him.
