Is it normal for a grandmother to want to go to her grandchild's first day of kindergarten? I have never heard of this happening - and was caught completely off guard when my mother-in-law informed me that she wants to be there for my child's first day of kindergarten. I personally think that this is overstepping the boundaries a bit. I mean, she already sent her kids off to school and now it's my turn to send mine off. It should be a special bonding experience between me and my child. Right? Or am I overreacting? Did you (or do you plan on) having your parents go with you to drop them off? I don't want to start any troubles (which I know it will do if I tell her that I would prefer her not be there) but I really feel that she shouldn't be there. I really don't want her there. What should I do?
