Ok, here is my dilemma. I have, to say the least, a strained relationship with my MIL. This is going to be my first HB, and my DD will be 22 months old when the new babe comes (about 2 weeks from now). DD is very, very sensitive and I have decided to have someone get her when labor starts. The logical choice is MIL, and frankly DH would probably be irritated if she wasn't the designated person. My plan is to call her as soon as labor begins to pick DD up. And I know that I will want DD home as soon as the baby is born. My concern is that this woman is going to bring her frenetic, crappy, pitiful energy into my birthing space, while I'm in labor, and then I am going to have to deal with her after she brings DD home, when all I am going to want to do is cuddle up on the bed with the 4 of us, alone. All I can think to do is smudge the house immediatly after she leaves (I am going to smudge at some time anyway). That will put me in a good head space and help me get rid of negativity (hopefully). Not sure what to do PP with her. She can come in and say a quick hi and see the baby, but then I want her out. To be honest I would love for DH to handle the situation, but I don't want to put him in the middle. Any suggestions would be really, really helpful...
