Sorry 🙁

It is good to have a talk with her and see if she can tone it down a bit.  Try to draw some boundaries. I don’t mean to be a negative nancy here, but this might be hard.  Some people have very domineering personalities and that is hard to change.  A lot of people with domineering personalities are also very stubborn and resistant to change.  She might need constant reminders.  Still, it is right of you and FI to be clear that you find some of her behavior unacceptable.

I would have “accidentally” dropped her cake.  Then told her to clean it up since she brought it.  And probably never invite her to another birthday party…

But seriously, glad you two are going to talk to her.  She is welcome to have an opinion, but she can keep it to herself or she won’t be invited over anymore!

lol I LOVE MightySapphire’s response.  Unfortunately, I have no words of wisdom for you, but I do agree that you & your hubby should speak with her.

Good luck!!!  I hope she hears what you are saying (I mean the pshcological act not the physical act:) and responds in a positive way.  It’s great that the two of y’all are going to do it together!!!
