I've been blessed with pretty great in-laws. They're relatively normal and helpful, and they truly want the best for both my husband and me. However, there are things exactly no one enjoys doing with their in-laws, no matter how wonderful they might be. And if they're not so wonderful? Eek. At the very least, rest assured you are not alone. Ain't nobody like doing certain things with their in-laws. Period.
We live several thousand miles away from either set of parents, which has some upsides and downsides. We don't have regular, free babysitters in the form of loving grandparents at our constant disposal, but we also don't have an audience while we work through some of life's more difficult decisions or parenting issues. Some nights, when I'd love to go out to a movie or dinner with my husband, I feel the downsides more. However, when I sit down and think about what we could be working through with an audience of in-laws, that upside comes right through. And when they do come to visit, we try to avoid this list of things exactly no one enjoys doing with their in-laws, and at any and all cost.
