Expensive Care and Feeding,

The query has come up in our family about when our 2.5-year-old can keep at my in-laws’ home in a single day with out us. My in-laws stay over two hours away, and my MIL has been actually excited to have sleepovers since our kiddo was born. My associate just lately began asking after I’ll be prepared. There have been lots of modifications in our household these days—each of us journey for work, and I simply stopped nursing. I’ve instructed them I’m not prepared and don’t know when that can change. I’m feeling actually anxious about it.

I steered another choices (we keep in a lodge native to their home so I’m not distant, or they arrive spend the night time with us at our home), however I really feel my boundaries are getting pushed with each events repeatedly mentioning the problem. I don’t know what to do. How do we discover center floor?

—Can’t Sleep

Expensive Can’t Sleep,

As one in all your son’s mother and father, it’s important to be snug with the place he sleeps. Your associate and their mom have a proper to their emotions about it, however I don’t assume they need to be pressuring you to agree once you’re unsure. It might not solely irritate me however make me somewhat suspicious, to be sincere, if somebody saved insisting my youngster sleep someplace apart from house regardless of my reservations.

I feel the center floor right here is that you simply’re not saying “by no means” (from what I perceive?); you’re saying “not but.” If I have been you, I’d inform them you could’t give them a precise timeline, but when and once you do really feel the time is true for a grandparent sleepover 2.5 hours away from you, you’ll allow them to know. Within the meantime, reiterate that you simply’re glad to have your in-laws go to, or you possibly can go to them. What they need to care about is that they get time with their grandchild, not whether or not or when he sleeps at their home.
