So, I made the mistake of assuming that our parents knew we would want them to visit after the baby was born, but I didn't set parameters. I assumed they would know that, especially as a first time mom, we would want time as just the 3 of us (DH, baby and me) before DH goes back to work 2 weeks after the baby is born.
I just found out my MIL is planning on staying for two weeks! Ugh ugh ugh. She wouldn't be staying with us since we don't have the room, but with my SIL who lives 3 miles away. I love my MIL, I really do, but even the thought of my own mother staying for that long makes me want to break out in hives (my parents will only be staying 3-4 days max). This is the IL's first grand baby, and my parents 3rd, so I'm sure that's playing in to this a bit.
DH is willing to say something about making the stay shorter, but he likes the idea of her being here that long. I'm going to have to ask him to be the bad guy, huh?
Has anyone had a GOOD experience of family staying that long after baby is born? I'm trying to decide if we just play it by ear, or if we broach the topic now...
