  • My parents live 3 houses down from me, so yes we see them a lot! My in-laws live about 5 hours away in Indiana (we're in MI) and we'd like to see them more but they don't make the effort and we just don't have the time or money to keep going down there. If they traded off (by coming here), we might see them more.

  • my parents live about 5 minutes away, but I don't get to see them that often... maybe once every couple of weeks and my MIL lives in CA and never calls (we don't have a contact number for her, she calls when she wants to talk to us... she has two 4 month old grandchildren and has called 2 times since they were born!)

  • Every single day. There is always someone in my home. If I'm not over theirs.

  • Well...right now we are staying with my parents while my hubby is gone. So yeah, we see my parents every day. My hubby's parents we see, now, about once a week. They just moved back to the area. When they were in AR we only saw them about 2 times a year. When my hubby is home and we are in VA, we try to visit once a month, but it doesnt always work out.

  • No,
    I see my mom maybe every other month, sometimes I'll get lucky and will see her once a couple months in a row, she works 60+ hours a week, she lives an hour and half away and she travels on work assignments that send her all over the country.

    I don't see my in-laws much either, they live three states away and visit 1-2 times a year here, we travel and visit them once a year, so maybe 2-3 times a year I'll see them.

    I enjoy the time I get with the parents both my husband and I have, and stay grateful for what I do have, as my mom always said, "It's not quantity, it's quality".

  • yes, I live with my family, lol. My DD's other grandmother though, we dont' visit much. She just lives in the next town over, but she's not a very open grandmother with my DD and her and I have had a lot of problems, so I try to keep it so she is welcome to stop over anytime to see her, but she doesn't get her alone. (problems like I caught her giving my DD (who was 10 months at the time) potato chips, and things like this).
