I was thinking of making a waffle cone basket with decorations and toppings. I was going to try and make my own sorbet and give that as a gift. Not too sure my mom would like it bec she is a diabetic. I found an idea on pintrest, make your own coffee sleeve.. it looks cool but my sewing machines are not working so I don't know how I would put it together. I also thought about making my own lemon scrub for my mil.
I am not going to have my MIL over for supper. This year I really want Mothers Day for myself. I know this sounds bad. I am a bit older and not in my 20's I am in my 30's now. I wasn't able to have kids when we wanted to and had to wait 2 1/2 years. I just feel this day is so special to me, I want to spend my time with my Family! I am having a hard time with my MIL she seems to be playing mind games and is very manipulative. I know my dh is the first born and he is a mamma's boy for sure. Even he is starting to see how is mom is treating him, and not letting him go. I just need to put my foot down and make her realize.
Thanks for the picture idea. I have chosen not to share any pictures I take of the baby. When I go over to her place for functions. Every one has a camera and they are all taking pictures... it is like my baby is a super star. She doesn't take any pictures of me and the baby. It is sad but I think I made my point last time she was here at my place. If I am doing something I stop and come and pick the baby up and hold my baby close to me(face) and get in that picture. I don't want my baby growing up looking at grandmas pictures and not seeing mom in the pictures but only dad. This is something that has been on my heart since the baby was born. They never took any of me at the hospital only the baby and the dad. So I will not be giving her a picture that is for sure. I am sorry for the long reply. I just have mixed feelings of my MIL and I know I should love her but she has really hurt me these past months. I don't know what to do. I just know we need to move and not live 2 1/2 blocks away.
Hey if you are on pintrest I could give you my name. I pinned a lot of cool DIY idea's last night. Hope you have a great day.

How about baby pictures? That's an easy one all moms and grandmothers love. Or maybe flowers or a plant from your yard? Is there something you could split into a planter? Or you could invite your mom/MIL over for a home cooked meal. Or bake a dessert or make a fruit basket. I'm sure she'd appreciate that too.
