Anyone having their MIL come to stay after their birth? I have really conflicting feelings on this one. She offered months ago and told me to let her know so she could give early notice to her Yosemite Nat Park seasonal job and come stay on her way to Maine (she is a travelin' grandma!) but I never got back to her, purposely. Today she called dh and asked him if we had made any decisions about it yet. I just don't see how her being here could really help. We have a tiny 2 br apt with 5 of us in here already. Her and baby make 7!! She doesn't cook even though she is a mother of 6 (and I don't want her to try!) and she has always been pretty self-involved when she visits. She gets antsy. She doesn't drive so I am afraid I will have to be entertaining her. The only reason I feel I would need help is really to feed us so I don't have to worry about cooking on top of everything else. It also means I have to make sure the apt is clean before she comes. I wish it were someone from my family coming because I would feel so much more at ease but my mom doesn't plan on coming for awhile as my little sis is having her first and due Feb 26th. Just thinking aloud (or whatever you can call this LOL) and wondering what is going on with everyone else.
