My DS and DiL in California are expecting their 2nd child. Due date is 13 December. After consultation with DiL and her mother, I have offered to go over for a week or two to help out.
Her mother (the maternal grandmother) will be over for a long-planned holiday in October (planned before we knew about the pregnancy), and, as a result, doesn't have any more holiday from work.
DiL said she hadn't dared ask us, but was pleased with the offer.
A flight to the States has to be booked well in advance if it is to be affordable, but, as the first child was 3 weeks premature, I can't figure out when I should book for.
I would like to be home again for Christmas, and DS will fortunately be able to take paternity leave (very unusual for the US!) once I have left and the baby is there.
What should I do?
