When I had dd they visited (from CA to OH) 9 TIMES in 3 MONTHS. OMG. All of them uninvited. Then we told them to cool it and they scaled it back to once a month, but that was still way way too much. They are NUTS. Now they visit maybe 3 times a year, possibly 4 but it is so irritating because it's every holiday we have. Plus they are always calling, emailing and wanting to SKYPE.
I think it's really bizarre that MIL calls DH EVERY SINGLE DAY. Most days he doesn't answer his phone. If he did she would call MULTIPLE times per day. She just wants to be this close knit family now that we have kids, but we don't want it and she can't get that through her thick skull. If she was a nice person and actually considerred ME to be part of the family, maybe we could accomodate her but she is a mean self centered piece of work who considers me as nothing more than a womb for her grandbabies.
Anyway if he doesn't answer his phone, then she'll cal me, and then she'll start texting and e-mailing. Omg. IT's like having a stalker.
I only see my FIL about once every 3-4 years, he lives out of state and doesn't make any effort to come see us, we have to go see him and DH doesn't like his step-mom. I see my MIL about twice a year which is too much imo! She lives about 5 hours away, she comes our way to drop off her youngest child to the father that still lives here, so here visit's are short which I'm grateful for.
Can't wait to meet our new baby GIRL! Never forgetting all my sweet angels: Twins 10 weeks 1/2010 Baby B 8 weeks 8/2010 Angel 5 weeks 3/2013
Way too much if you ask me. Although I love my niece so it's a toss up. My one BIL and his family live 15 min. away, as does my MIL in the same town, and the other BIL is another 10 min. from there. Plus my husband does EVERYTHING with his brothers. Thankfully my FIL and his gf live 2 provinces over so we don't have to deal with them much. Unfortunately, my family lives in that province as well.
Well I am the oddball out because although I do not want to be I am living with mine currently. In that response I have to see mine every single day. Uuuuggghhhhh!!! I even had to open a blog to vent.
OMG! I could never. MIL actually assumed we going to live with her - she had a 3 family house - when we got married. I quickly corrected her of that notion, but that did not stop her from mentioning it once it a while. Even that gave me the heebie jeebies.
They live in Michigan and we live in Arizona now.. We see each other about twice a year. I wish that Kyleigh could see them more because they are her grandparents, but I don't really like how they have acted towards her, so I don't know if I'm too upset about the distance. haha
Kyleigh - 4 years old
Our beautiful miracle baby..
