If you live in the same town or area as your immediate family or extended family- how often do you spend time with them? Once a week? Once a month? Do you plan regular visits or just do random things together when you can?
I live in the same city as my mom, dad, and older brother. DS and I are currently staying with my dad so we see him pretty often, but my mom and brother both live about 20-25 minutes away. They both complain that we don't see each other enough, but honestly a few times a month is plenty for me. I don't mind seeing my dad everyday, because it's usually just a few minutes in the morning. It's important to me that W have a relationship with them, but if I don't set some boundaries they will want to hang out all the time and we won't have any time to ourselves. I'm curious to hear what other families who live close together do.
