I stress out a ton about the fact that my family lives out-of-state and hardly gets to see DD. My mom and dad are racking up the frequent flier miles coming out here to see her fairly frequently and it's really great. Today my mom mentioned us flying out to see them and celebrate DD's 1st birthday. I would *love* to, but DH has limited time off work and we've already planned a vacation. Plus, it's $600 we really don't have right now. I feel bad that my family doesn't get to see DD much, and we live only 20 minutes away from the in-laws. My mom is clearly jealous, understandably so, and I really don't know what to do about it. There's not much I can do!
I don't know, I'm just stressing about it a lot today. What do those of you with out-of-state moms do? I try to tell her that I feel bad and she just says to me "well that's what you get for living so far away." DH has a good job here and while we want to move somewhere else, until a job opportunity comes up, there's no reason to.
Maybe I'll just have to fly out for DDs 1st by myself? (trying not to think of how hard that might be with a one-year-old...)
