Waiting for the other shoe…
So the in-laws are here.
So far it’s been ok, but I am waiting for the fireworks. MIL got a ton of stuff for the babies which is great. BUT she asked me about who’s gonna be here when the babies are born. I told her my mom and my sisters and Josh is taking time off.
She then said when my family leaves she will come up and stay for “a while”. Dear God, how long is “a while”? Josh and I do need time alone eventually. And it’s completely different with my family. They know that when I need to be alone, I need to be alone and they are very cool about it. They are wonderful that way.
MIL on the other hand? Not so much. I can see her clamoring for baby attention and not leaving me and Josh alone.
I can easily feel stifled. I have always been a bit of a loner. I have always wanted to be by myself, figure it out on my own.
