How do you feel about unannounced family members showing up to your home?

My MIL is always showing up unannounced. I don't care if you want to stop by, but please call! I could be in the shower, in the middle of cooking dinner, using the restroom, or just put my kid down.

And everytime she shows up, she bring both her granddaughters, who are 6 & 4, and it ends up being an unplanned playdate.

Would you say something to her?

I would just appreciate a simple phone call - give me 10 minute notice, please! I wouldn't be so annoyed if she didn't have a cell phone ... but she does.

Ahhhh the pop in. My Mum does it sometimes, I never mind. She has a key so she just comes on in if I'm not able to get the door. lol.

I don't have a MIL so no problems there.

It would depend on who it is but if it is somebody I am not close to I would have a problem with it.

I wouldn't mind every once in a while but not all the time. I like having company since I'm a stay at home mom. But I can see where it would get annoying.

People always drop on here. Neighbors, my dad, my sis, my bff, etc. I love visitors! It's a nice surprise.
