So, DH was talking to his parents tonight. First, they want to come visit us in October on their way back from a trip to Europe. We would normally be okay with this, but 1) it's only about a month before I'm due, and 2) they'd get here on a Monday, and only stay for a couple of days.
#1 bugs us because who knows how I'll be doing at that point, and we'd much rather have them come AFTER Evan arrives (you know...so they can meet their grandchild and all). #2 bugs us because we'd either have to take those days off work (which we don't want to do - especially Kyle because he'll want to use his vacation days for when Evan comes) OR we'll just see them in the evenings --- what's the point of visiting if it's only going to be practically fleeting?
So, DH tells them we'd much rather miss this visit and them come in January to meet Evan. Well --- they say that they are thinking they might not want to come in January anymore. That they don't like the idea of traveling here during winter (they have mild winters where they live compared to here).
I'm just so in awe --- that they're going to let a little bit of snow/cold weather stop them from seeing their first grandchild??? We're both really saddened and disappointed by this. I mean, it's not like I want them to come for a month, but for them not to come at all is really upsetting.
Gah - hopefully they'll change their mind once they realize they'll be missing out on something big (especially since my parents are coming to visit over Christmas). Sigh.
