MIL and FIL are not going to stay with us after I have the baby
My MIL and FIL want to come stay with us after I have the baby, I am pregnant with our second. They live in Canada and moved there last year when their DD and her DH had to move there for his work. She wants to be able to see her new grandchild and spend time with both of them. I get this and she told me that it is hard for her to see all the pictures on facebook of my mom enjoying being a grandma while she can't.
I guess this is why she told me and DH that she and FIL will be staying with us for 2 weeks after the baby comes. I am not ok with this. I told DH that there was simply no way that this was going to happen. Thankfully he agrees but when we told them, MIL got mad and said we are keeping the kids from them. Well sorry, if you had not chosen to move to Canada they would still be 5 minutes from us. I am due in December, me and DH decided to ask them if they want to stay with us sometime in the spring but apparently that isn't good enough for them and I am a horrible person because I don't want them staying with us. DH also suggested maybe they get a hotel room so they could visit without staying in our home to which they said "why should we spend good money on a hotel when we are there to see y'all?"
I am sure they think they are being helpful by wanting to stay but they aren't. They are the kind of people who think they are helping when really they just make more work. For example, last time they came to stay, MIL made DH birthday cake instead of me buying it. With the ingredients she used, it costed almost as much as a store bought cake AND I had to clean up the mess but still she acted like she was being such a big help.
I guess I should just be glad that DH is on my side but I can't stand how MIL is being about it.
