Mother in law advice


Hey all

Wanting advice. My mother in law, retired only stays at home etc, came down when baby was born. (She’s been completely isolated and drove straight here as to avoid any covid exposure). She wanted to help out and of course spend time with her grand baby. She lives like 10 hours or so away. Anyways, we are at the point where we are ready for just some normal family time. She tends to tell my husband a lot of what to do, and she loves he life different than mine which is fine but it just causes more anxiety on me. I’m a neat freak and she clutters counters and the living room etc. it’s kind of driving me crazy lol. But I do appreciate her being here and wanting to spend time being grandma. But how do I end it so we can know what it feels like to just be our little family? In a nice way of course.
