Dear DD's grandparents:
I know you're excited to see DD. We are equally excited to bring her to you. But let's lay down a few ground rules:
1. You're not the one who has to wake up 5 times a night to get her back down. The problem is made worse when she gets crap naps during the day. Please don't roll your eyes at me when I remind you to keep an eye out for her sleepy cues....
2. DH and I do a lot of research and don't make decisions about big things for DD lightly- if we mention that we're doing X, please don't tell me why we should do Y and "I did Y in my day..."
3. You were a parent of a 4 month old 32 years ago. I know we both turned out great but maybe DH and I can have some credit for that? They do things differently now and we're following suit. Give us a chance to show you we can figure things out instead of barking orders...
Thank you and we love you.
