How close are the grandparents from you??
How often do they see your baby??




My parents live about 10 minutes away. We see them every Sunday at church and most Saturdays when we go over there to swim, although it has almost been too hot to swim here lately. It's been in the 100's.

DH's parents live about an hour away but their office is right across from the boys daycare so we see them alot also. My mother in law is our babysitter whenever we need someone to help out and watch one of the boys.

Both sets of grandparents live about 30 minutes away (in opposite directions). They both see the kids about once a week on average. Although I feel my parents see them a bit more because they are more proactive in seeing them.

My mom and stepdad live with us, so they see the kids and us when they're home. They travel a lot though.

DH's mom is in a nursing home about 30 minutes away. We don't see her very often - there's a lot of family drama there.

Both of our fathers are deceased

I'm so sorry to hear that. My dad passed from Alzheimer's in 2005 and I know how difficult that is.

MIL lives with us so she sees the boys every day

My dad and stepmom live about 10 minutes away and my mom and stepdad live 15 minutes away. They see the boys at least once a week. We are all very close!

My dad lives with us so he sees the kids every day. The in-laws live 16 glorious hours away (at least until they move here- already bought the house, just dealing with legal issues), then it will be 8 minutes. They've met JR once and Allison 3 times. Even though they will be super close they won't see the kids that often because MIL tries to take over and we're busy.

My in laws live about 20 minutes away. So usually once a week on the weekend. I wish they lived hundreds of miles away

My mom lives about 30 to 40 miles from here. She doesn't drive long distances though so maybe once a month. I wish we lived close enough to see her everyday.

My mom lives about 35 minutes away but she doesn't drive so we don't see her as often as we should.

My inlaws live in Ohio, so we only see them at Christmastime (though they did come out to meet Kira).

My parents are 1.5 hrs away. We try to meet up or visit 1-2 times a month. The inlaws live below us. We see them everyday. Although i would prefer less.

my dad lives a town away. he is my driver, so we see him a fair bit.

hubby's mom lives in england and has only visited once with us paying her way. not keen on doing this very often, so we do not see much of her.
