We were having a perfectly lovely conversation on the phone today, I said I couldn't wait to see her at Easter, and then she said "You know how you used to dread and loathe going to see Dad's family for Thanksgiving? That's how I feel about visiting you and [my older DD, her sister]. You make me feel horrible." She never used to do this as a teenager or in college, now it's all the time.

She's stressed because of the digs you've made in the past. Coming home makes her feel bad. She probably also feels it all the more when your older DD is there because people revert into their family roles. Just ask her what you can do to make it better for her, that you understand sometimes full family time can be stressful, and that you hope you'll also be able to spend some enjoyable time one on one.
