uh, mom ... no

My DM lives in a tiny apartment. It can feel crowded when DH, DS, and I go visit. (3 adults, well 2 = a teen)

We're planning on visiting her this week (DS has a camp all next week). When I checked about visiting on Monday, she told me that my Oldest niece will be there with her family (of 5) and was sure it'd work. I told mom it would be too crowded and we'll come another time.

It's nice that so many people want to visit her. Would she enjoy being taken out for lunch or dinner or something?

Re: uh, mom ... no

we're going to go a different day, and truthfully I think is makes the visits more personal for her/with her

I think she'd like that too. It sort of "spreads" out the social time. My mother would plan things with friends on different days to fill in her calendar of activities during the week.

Yep! I have an older friend that I take out every other Tuesday. Her one nephew takes her out alternating Fridays. The other takes her out Sundays. My DH takes her to doctor's appointments and lunch. She still feels active and it's not too tiring for her.

Re: uh, mom ... no

I agree with you Snafu....it's a win win situation, as it gives you more of a personal visit, and you can take her to lunch or dinner if she would like to go....plus it's nice that both families will be with her for a visit....gives her something special to look forward to....
