[ - ] Do you know anyone who has no problem stating awkward things? My brother's good friend stayed with us when she first came to NYC for a couple of weeks at my invitation. She was young and alone in a foreign city, I was being nice. I'd known her a while bec of my brother, and still don't know what to make of her after all these years. She's good looking, is vivacious, carefree and got along with dh. It jarred me, and I admittedly let the relationship (her and I) slip despite seeing her on FB/Skype/Google+. We were all together recently (including my brother). I stupidly asked why we haven't kept in touch. She says loud enough for everyone to hear that she felt I was annoyed when she was around, that she appreciated what we did for her but she doesn't want to force friendship with me for my resentment for her. She is right. But who says this stuff?! 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

An hour later she came to see the baby and then drove home. Inlaws inundated me in hospital next day, exhausting. The day after I came home, my mom drive down and spent four nights...she cooked, cleaned, laundered, held baby, she was not a busybody. The next week she came for 3 nights, the next week 2 nights, then one night last week. My inlaws live nearby and have unrealistic expectations, we schlepped the baby there three weekends in a row (starting when baby a week old) and it's not fun. They drop by with little warning.

We did not have space for 4 people and everyone was miserable in August in our no a/c house.

Last two weeks of both pregnancies I stayed with my in-laws since we lived in the same area and DH was not available, I was on my own. 2nd time it was even more helpful since MIL could watch dc #1 when I needed to check out and sleep. I stayed in one of DH's sisters' old bedrooms. MIL drove me to the hospital both times and stayed with me until DH could get there. [ Reply | More ]

I do remember we stayed 1st week with in-laws after coming home. I know MIL was probably sitting on her ***** hands listening to us argue over how to put the diaper on and about the formula and breastfeeding - but she never interfered unless we actually asked. I am sure she was beside herself listening to us idiots argue. [ Reply | More ]
