I need all the help I can get to make it through the next couple of days with my MIL. She's driving me crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is the sweetest lady and I love her to death - but she is trying way too hard and causing me to have like twice the workload as if I was here by myself. She just finished going through every single thing that is sitting on our table - asking me where to put each thing or if I want to keep it. Ugh! I just want to relax when the babies are sleeping or having down time. I almost always have to re-do something because she just doesn't get it. Like how soft pasta has to be cooked for a kid without a lot of teeth and why you can't strain it and wait 30 minutes because they get all hard and are basically useless. She unswaddles Leah when she whines a bit before falling asleep...and every single time I have to politely find a way to reswaddle her and mention that I think she is trying to go to sleep now.
I know next week I'll be wishing I had the extra pair of hands. And I love that the kitchen is clean. But poor Evan is sick of her following him everywhere he goes and I can tell that he just needs some space. She got him up soooooo early today even though we have told her that he sometimes wakes up and chats for a minute and then goes back to sleep. Now his whole day will be off.
I know this probably sounds like I'm an ungrateful brat - because I know that she just wants to help. But I'm going to have to rest from having her here!!! And of course - I can't whine to DH about this - my mom advised me long ago to never complain about your husband's mother to him...haha!!
