My parents usually stay at our home when they come visit. I've known all along that when the baby comes, I absolutely do not want my parents staying with us when they come to meet the baby.
My mom was shocked, but said she would be supportive and get a hotel. Would the right thing to do be offering to pay for half the cost?
Also - I'm sure my sister will come visit around the same time as them, if not at the same time. I'm perfectly comfortable with her staying in my house if she comes down without her kiddos and husband. Is it wrong to allow my sister to stay with us, but not my parents?
I never have privacy when my parents are in our home. My mom follows me around the house, into the master bedroom, and doesn't respect my limits. I see her getting up every time she hears the baby crying, and trying to give me unwanted advice/sitting up with me while I feed.
We're just not close in that way. She makes me so uncomfortable.
Anyone have insight on similar experiences? Can I pick and choose who is allowed to spend nights in our home in the days/weeks after the baby is born? (My family is all out of state.)
