  • This sounds like the kind of question she would love to be asked. Even if she is reluctant to do it, for whatever reason, it is clearly a compliment that you want her there. You can ask her any way you want....Tell her you want her there, or like you said, at least to be third to hold the baby. What mother in law wouldn't love to hear that?

  • ask your DH what he thinks she would say if you asked her. if you two are close im sure she'll be flattered :)

  • my mom has more "important" children to attend to.. We never have gotten along. this is my moms 13th grandbaby so she could care less.. same with me she could care less..
    my dad will be there so maybe he can watch him...
