See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My kids g/parents visited us yesterday and it was the 6th time my kids have seen them. My kids don't know who they are and they won't let them cuddle or hold them, they scream for me if they try to. So this visit was okay, little uncomfortable and my kids didn't want a bar of them but now i feel bad! It's ridiculous, they choose to hardly visit and i have always let them visit whenever they have asked (which they have done so 6 times) so I don't understand why i feel like crap now. ex mil told me kids dad broke his leg but he's not coming back to the country. I think she thought i'd know but he's only rung twice in 4.5 mths so i had no idea. And ex mil brought me a homemade orange cake and homemade cookies which was really sweet of her and I think it's great they are finally trying to be respectful to me so it sucks that I feel so bad. My mom said "you get out what you put in so minimum effort with the kids is exactly what they will get back" but that still hasn't made me feel better.
