My dd17 is going away for college in 2 weeks
So DH is driving the van with items for her dorm(mini fridge, microwave, tv) and she's going to be driving with me in her car with smaller items (clothes, laundry basket, bedding, cups etc)
Well we're leaving dd18 at home because it would be too much emotion on the way up to the dorm and it will be overwhelming for dd17. She going to say goodbye at the house.
My problem is sd wants to insert herself into this and come say goodbye on that day too... i wouldn't have a problem with this EXCEPT, knowing sd, she's going to make this entirely about her. She's going to be the LOUDEST cryer (even though she was fine not contacting anyone for 6 months at our house after her summer fiasco last year) she's going to force dd17 to give HER the last hug goodbye, just to make sure that dd18 doesn't get it, she's going to make sure ALL attention is going to be on her with everyone trying to console her FAKE sadness... i imagine that she's going to somehow have a stomach ache that needs medical care all the while dd18 is ACTUALLY sad to see her sister leave while sd just wants another chance for her theatrics.
Nobody is going to feel comfortable expressing their emotions in front of sd because of all that...
I'm just stressed and need to vent... but i don't know how to tell DH that i DON'T want sd here the day dd17 is leaving.
