they live like 2 hours away and want to see our son all the time but rarely come up to our house but expect us to pack up and come to theirs constantly. I've asked my husband to nicely remind them that packing up, even for a day trip is more difficult for us than it is them. Not to mention, when we go they always have commentary about how long we stay...and we've tried explaining that we are trying to keep little man on a schedule, especially for naps.

Wow. I feel for ya. My in-laws also live two hours from us. And our situation is so similar. Since our daughter was born, they always want us to go up there and have been to our house only twice that I remember. Every time we go, we have lug all this stuff w/ us and it messes up our daughter's sleep schedule so she's always crabby and clingy the next day. They don't realize how inconvenient this is. Our only saving grace is that they rarely make plans with us. My daughter is nearly two and has only seen her dad's side of the family about a half dozen times. It's sad for her. But I figure if they want to be that way, that's their problem.
