- Wedding: April 2012
Hi! My MIL just called to talk today, and mentioned that she was willing, and her boss had suggested…that she come to visit when the baby is born. I live in France with no family around (mine is in canada, and DH’s is 7 hours away). My parents are coming to stay nearby for all of the month of May, the baby is due March 27th. The inlaws might be able to come again together (fil and mil) sometime from the 11-26 of april (not that whole time). Anyway I’m not sure what to tell her. She was very sweet and said that even if I say I don’t need her to come she won’t be hurt (I hope that’s true). On one side of things it would be good to have help, but on another I know we would want intimate new family time together. My DH will have about 14 days off in the beginning, then I’ll be alone.
Anyway, all this to say, what did you find you appreciated during your first weeks with a newborn? I have no idea what I will want…I might be annoyed with her prescence if she is too overbearing, but I might really need her…
