I too have this problem. My brother called and insisted on bringing his grown children and grandkids which are cute kids but as a 63yr old woman my patience has long gone on small children and the parents don't even try to control them so my nerves was shot trying to get dinner ready (by myself for 18 people) all the while two small children running around the island where I was working. I don't want to hurt the feelings of the parents of these kids but I am already worried that they will come back for Christmas uninvited again.What should I do, whatever it is I already know they will be mad.
