my in laws (mil, FIL and step mother in law), dh's siblings, all want to go to the airport (which is 3 hrs away by the way) to welcome him home from his deployment.
He doesnt want to tell people NOT to come, but knows they will all come. His coworkers will all be there too. He went on his own for the deployment so no giant homecoming of a big troop. Just a domestic flight with hubby onboard.
I tried to tell him I wished it would just be us, but he said he didnt want to stop people who want to see him, but that he would give his attention to his wife and kids. I was worried about MIL hoarding in with her stupid tears and big emotional outbursts.
I would really love for it to JUST be me, and my two boys. Considering the baby really only knows his daddy from skype. argh!!!!
another tib bit is he wont have the stress of returning from a war zone because he did part of his tour overseas but has been stateside for some time now.
what did you do for your homecoming? Am I being stupid?
