Every year we get a visit from my in-laws, this year is the first time they have met our second son who is now 9 months old. I just don’t get how they can be so disinterested in their grand kids that they only see twice a year! (Once when we go to Scotland and once when they come here.) They don’t do anything! I tell them I’m going to take the kids here and there etc and they say they’ll stay home, but if I stay at home with them they almost seem on edge by the noise of the kids! They sit and read the paper and act as if they don’t even notice them! I so look forward to them coming and I’m always so disappointed by their reaction! Am I over-reacting? Am I expecting too much? They don’t even help in other ways like making me a cuppa?! Or helping with meals? Thankfully my mum and dad are different!
