First let me say that yes, I know that anyone including my in-laws can read this and I don't mind one bit. They are coming tomorrow night and I am very excited, Lucas even more so he has woken up during the night the last couple of days asking if they are here yet.
I, from talking with those around me, seem to be one of the select few that truly does love her in-laws. What is it about in-laws that seem to set up problems for most? Does the spouse never truly measure up as no one is ever good enough for their child? Do they not like their parenting styles/their tastes? What is it? I must admit I have heard some pretty bad horror stories about in-laws so I know the bad ones do exist.
All I know is I love my in-laws. My father-in-law has it figured out pretty well. He likes to say, why would you not like your son/daughter in-laws? They are the one that is now married to your child and if you ever really want to see your child they had better like you.
And luckily in my family it goes both ways, my parents love Eric too.
