My dad called me last night to tell me that he is definitley coming. He had a brainwave and realized that he could NOT drive across the entire country in 3 days, and decided to chuck out the money to fly ($1800). He finalizing everything with the travel agent today and could be here as early as this Saturday (and my mom comes on Sunday). He will be here for a whole week - meaning I have both of them at the same time for, well, a week! Ugh.
He doesn't want me to tell my mom. He wants to surprise her at the airport on Sunday. As I mentioned, they are divorced but on speaking terms, however - I don't think my mom is going to be as amused as he thinks she will be. They both have a very different sense of humour. I think she is looking forward to spending time with me and the baby (she hasn't even seen me since my wedding almost 3 years ago), and I don't think she's going to be too pleased with having my dad "crash" the party, so to speak. Frankly, I'm not so pleased about it either - not that I don't want to see my dad, but I am easily closer to my mom and was looking forward to spending this
