So, I moved to Scotland from California back in December 2009. I knew it would not be easy leaving my family and friends, but I wanted to do this for me! We went back for Christmas 2010 and made the decision that we were going to move back to California some time next year, finances and LO's health permitting. I never expected people to jump on planes all the time to come visit me. I know it costs a lot. Fast forward to now: LO is coming by c-section in two weeks. I have asked my parents since the beginning of my pregnancy if they were planning on coming to see him over here after he was born. Again, I understand the cost, but honestly, I know that's not an issue for them. Since I've asked, my mom has been making every excuse not to give me a straight answer. I got some response a couple weeks ago asking me if I wanted them to come like two or three months after he's born. I said that I would probably like them to come sooner. That's been the end of the topic pretty much. I'm beginning to feel like they (mainly my mom, cause my dad won't go without her) don't want to come see him at all! I know it's not easy having a daughter overseas and now a grandchild (their first) as well, but honestly, I feel she needs to make some kind of effort! She hasn't even bought anything for the baby! Even MY DAD sent me something for him! Can anyone explain this? Am I missing something? Am I being irrational? ETA: I take that back, she did get him some cot toys.
