    I'm not suggesting your cousin and her baby would do this, but it goes to show you need to be careful who you let live with you.

    Or maybe the OP should wire up the doorbell to the electricity.

    I think I'm going down a darker path than most posters.
    But I can guarantee that once I've told someone they're not welcome, I don't have to repeat the message. ;)
    Perhaps she needs to go stay with the father if she know who it I, maybe it's her dad...

    Tell them you don't want their little tart anywhere near your hubby.

    Are you responding to the correct thread?

    Which 'Tart' are you referring to? Whom is the tart?
    The opposite of what you know...is also true

    Have you spoken to your mum at all about all this. What does she think?

    Will she take sides? Will she see you as the bad guy, causing a family rift, if you refuse? Or does she think her sister is a bit barking too?

    From what I recall reading about the OP's Mother, she wouldn't be the first person I'd call on for support. :(

    One of the big things I have learned in life, is to assert myself and to put an immediate end to stuff I do not want to happen / (Or - entirely different thread - someone being rude/horrible to me, or mine)

    Saying NO to family is so hard sometimes though. I'm currently trying a subtle approach over stuff with mine...but they don't seem to be taking the hint. Might have to be more blunt myself.
