So, I live in the UK and my Dh is deploying soon. I'm having a baby while he's gone and I have another young child at home.
My mom keeps saying that she's saving up to come for the baby to be born. (her bf lives in Europe, so she'd come and stay for a bit, then go see him). But she's planning on dragging my little brother and leaving him at our house while she visits her bf. He'll be taken out of school for this... so I told her to just not come and that I can handle it on my own. She's refusing to do this... probably because she wants to see her bf. Her trip should last somewhere around 2 months.. and my brother who is already struggling in school would probably be set back an entire semester of credits in high school.
I'm at a loss for what to do. It would be nice having my mom here when the baby is born, but it might just be more stress then it's worth. She smokes.. and I don't want that crap around my kids. Also, last time I saw her she started a whole bunch of crap with me and my Dh and I ended up leaving on bad terms. Not to mention my brother doesn't deserve to be taken out of school that long. It would really mess up his education.
I'm considering telling her that if she takes my brother out of school.. she's not welcome in my home, I don't care how much she pays in plane tickets... it's ridiculous.. and she's stressing me out more then she knows with this crap.
What would you do? Advice?
