Can your mom go in on the shower with your FMIL? That is a heck of a lot of showers!

Disclaimer – I don’t know if this will work with your mom since it could backfire.

Can you call her bluff? In other words, go with your guest list as planned, includingyour mom and her family/friends. She made decide to show up once it becomes a reality and is actually happening. Tell her that’s the only weekend that works, and you’re sorry, but you don’t have time for a 4th shower.

Honestly, you should not be involved in any of this. I would tell everyone to do whatever they want to do and just be a part of the showers that they’re throwing you.

Ugh, that sounds terrible. I would just ignore it as much as possible. Have your cousin send an invitation to your mom and let your mom figure out if she is going or not. I think your safest bet regarding your mom throwing a shower as well is to stay out of it as much as possible. “Let me know when you figure it out/let me know you need an address list” 

You have enough things on your plate that you shouldn’t have to worry about the drama.  I can’t imagine it not working out in the end 🙂

Oh man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re having to go through all of this. Honestly I agree with LadyBear. Sometimes you just have to make yourself happy. You’re already having two more showers than you wanted so I wouldn’t encourage Mama throwing another. I’d leave Mama’s name on the guest list (for cousin’s shower) and whether she decides to go or not is her decision.

I assume if she has such problems with your cousin, then either A) your cousin is aware of Mama’s issues or B) Mama goes out of her way to keep cousin in the dark, in which case she will probably go to the shower and play nice. Either way she’s responsible for her own decisions and shouldn’t be adding to your stress. Hang in there. It will all work out in the end.
