MIL has still yet to aknowledge that she will have a second granddaughter. With DD1 she was ecstatic but she still has not even spoken this baby's name in conversation. She is also someone who shows her love by buying things and she has not bought one outfit or blanket or anything for DD2. She bought EVERYTHING you can imagine for DD1 so it is just a huge difference. Don't get me wrong... I'm not saying she has to buy things to love our children its just the way she normally is.
We have brought up in conversation how we are excited for DD2 to be here soon and all she will say is "you guys are going to have your hands full" or "the first year is going to be terrible". It is making me really sad and I'm not sure what to do about it. Hopefully she will change when DD gets here but for now its really stressing me out
We are wondering if its because she thinks we are crazy for having 2 so close together or if she is worried we are going to ask her to babysit both of them but she has no reason to worry about this. She lives 3.5 hours from us... its not like we are going to pop in with both girls and leave them with her unnanounced...
Did any of you experience anything like this? Sorry so long :-/
