PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A struggling mum with a six-month-old baby is refusing to cook Christmas dinner for her 'moody' in-laws after they said they were 'too old' to do it. The woman explained that she made Christmas dinner for her husband's family last year whilst pregnant, but cannot manage this year due to having a young child, extra guests to provide for and being short on cash. As a compromise, she asked if her guests could bring a dish each or chip in for a takeaway - but they shot down both ideas, the Liverpool Echo reports. Taking to Mumsnet's popular Am I Being Unreasonable? (AIBU) forum, the mum asked others for advice over the festive dilemma.. In a post titled 'To not host Christmas', she explained: "Husband and I take it in turns to spend Christmas Day with one side of the family and Boxing Day with the other, this year its his family's turn to be with us on Boxing Day. "Last year when I was pregnant I hosted and cooked for his whole family - days and days of prep and cost hundreds (as it does if you're needing to cook for 6+ who like a drink). They were very grateful as I think they could tell how much effort I'd put in.

"Husband and I set them straight but they said: 'well we have no choice because you can't come to us as you're allergic to dogs.' I said to in laws I really don't mind having them over but it's just too much money and time with a little one, so if everyone could bring a bottle and a dish, or we could all put in money for a takeaway and they bring a drink each. Her in-laws say they are 'too old' to host Christmas dinner. (Image: Getty Images) "They want Christmas dinner because 'we are old and can't do it anymore'. Just for context they are in their 60s and in very good health and are being quite moody about my refusal to cook a Christmas dinner for eight people." People soon flocked to the comments section, with many supporting the mum's decision.

. "They are very rude to try and insist you host when you're clearly busy with a young baby and less income.

If they must come, tell them to bring all the food themselves, cook it and serve it as you will be attending. Your DH (dear husband) if need be can supervise." A third wrote: "If money's tight then another reason to prioritise your own family, especially your little one! Don't have these freeloaders over unless they bring every scrap of food and drink with them!" Someone else commented: "I'm in my sixties and I'm certainly not old. The 'we are old and can't cook a dinner' excuse is ridiculous. They just don't want to.
