Remember my post about my MIL, and how she thought we already had too many kids, and was studiously ignoring my current pregnancy? I was worried she might keep that treatment up after the baby was born.
Well, they called yesterday from the road, as they are on an extended trip trying out their new teardrop trailer across the whole country (one of the perks of being retired ) and they heard our answering machine message saying that we might be having the baby yesterday. (We didn’t… ) When DH called them back, he said his mom actually sounded excited. I guess now that it’s really gonna be a baby she can hold, she’s looking forward to it.
DH seems upset by her previous attitude and thinks this change of heart should have come sooner. But I told him, hey, let’s just be happy with what we can get. Victoria (the baby) won’t be affected by anything that came before this, and as long as grandma treats her well once she is here, that is all that matters.
So, yay… grandmotherly instincts seem to have kicked in at last. I guess the prospect of another baby to hold can overcome a lot…
