Just need some opinions ladies. My sister who I am somewhat close with (closer with the other sister) has just offered to take a week's vacation time from work (which she has a lot saved up) and come stay with us states away after the baby is born to "help with whatever we need". She even mentioned laundry, helping clean house, etc.
I think this is a very generous offer, but I am weary for a couple of reasons. First of all, we told our parents who live 8 hours away that they couldn't even come stay at our house when they come to meet baby, as we will just be getting our act together, sleep-deprived and well- my parents drive me batty as it is. Second of all, mys sister is almost 30 and lives with my parents and does NONE of these things on a regular basis. I do think she would be helpful however- I think it is due to a messed up relationship with her and my parents.
How do I respond to her offer? On one hand, I think it wouild be nice and the other hand, I am worried about having a visitor for a week. If I do take her up on her offer, when would be a good time? Right after baby? A few weeks later? The week I start work so we don't have to start daycare my first week back? (I think she could handle this...) Thoughts?
