I posted a while back about my inlaws visiting - basically they didn't help with DS and caused me more work and stress. They did not seem interested in DS at all and have no plans on visiting again.
Because this is the only grandchild I **try** to email updates as often as possible to both sets of grandparents. I did while I was pregnant and I am trying now with DS. Just stuff like how much he weighs or any new things he is doing.
This week my MIL wrote back how hearing about DS made her cry and how much she misses me and DS and can't wait to come visit again. WHAT????
I showed that to DH and he said it was very typical of his parents - showing emotion from a safe distance. In my PP post I said I really liked them via phone and email and now I know why!
