Re: MIL stayed for 2 months over Christmas and is back in 5 months

You are a stronger woman than I, to have your MiL stay for so long. And twice a year. You should feel incredibly proud for doing so, given the fact that you are the one who takes the brunt of it.

I have an 8 month old baby who has so far travelled everywhere in a sling, and a 2 year old who walks or goes about in a pretty nasty 'umbrella stroller', as the trade lingo has it, that is a bit bumpy for a baby to trav...
