My Mother-In-Law is not interested in seeing the baby. Darling Husband is more frustrated with it than I am, I’m happy not to have to see her. Not that I don’t like her, but she is quite the drama queen.
In my experience, people seem to assume that giving advice regarding parenting is always ok and that whatever they are saying is always the only right advice. So I would think that having a baby would actually strain a relationship rather than strengthen it. I know that my ILs were driving me CRAZY when we visited with the baby. She was sleeping and they kept flicking the soles of her feet to wake her up and pinching her cheeks. All I could think was “Would you like ME to wake you up like that??” Grr. And she was fussy for the rest of the day. Plus I had to ask everyone to wash their hands and more than one person rolled their eyes and sighed. Come on people, you are DIRTY and I don’t want your dirt on my daughter. Treat her like a piece of white silk!
