My mother in law expects to be waiting on hand and foot when she comes over: Advice?

When we go somewhere for dinner we just clear our plates and put them
In the sink. That’s actually normal. Maybe buy paper plates and solo cups if your that upset about some dishes.

She is a guest. Why do expect a guest to help cook and clean?

You may not be a hotel, but she doesn’t come to visit to mother grown adults.

Does she do the same for you when you’re at her house?

If I have family over they know they’re welcome to anything except my bed, but if I’m hosting a dinner like thanksgiving or Christmas I’m sorry but I’m the host and i will get my guest family or not whatever they want. We fix our own plates but i will cook the food and i will be the one to clean up after them. That’s just respect

If she just shows up out of the blue I get it but if she is invited I am not sure what you’re complaining about?

She is a guest. It isn’t her job to do all that. It would be nice if she did though. However she should take care of her own plate though :woman_shrugging:t2:

I feel about you talking down on your MIL like this when she’s acting like a normal guest. She is not doing anything wrong at all.

If you don’t want to be a proper hostess, then ask to go to her home as a guest?

So as a host, I would never expect a guest to do any of the above. As a guest, I would never not at least try to help clear the table. My plate at least.

You said it “you are hosting” not her. Be happy she is in your child’s life.

I must be one of those weird old fashioned hostesses, my own mom tried to help me clean up after dinner recently and I told her no way, go play with the kids, I’m hosting, I didn’t invite my parents to be my maids, I wanted to treat them to a home cooked meal and relaxation time with the grandkids. I don’t ever let my company clean up when I invite them over for dinner. :woman_shrugging:t2:
