For my inlaws to believe Im not packing up and running back to the states?
Im not upset (anymore) , I just find it a little humourous. I recently blogged that we are returning to the States for a weeklong visit (just me and the girls). My suegra told Papi that she doent think I will be returning to Mexico.
Um, yes. Because I packed up our entire life and moved my family across an international border on a whim and after 2.5 months Im done. Because I want my children to live without their father. Because I want to live with mi vida, mi amor. Because I brought all MY belongings (and lots of things that were my fathers) and things special to my family - but Ill just leave that here because I dont have the juevos to tell everyone Im ditching ship.
Believe me, if I were returning to the States permanently you would know it. And your son would be coming with us.
I did bring it up with her yestday, by slying asking her what I should bring everyone back as little gifts. She admitted she didnt think we were coming back and I simply told her "Tu hijo no puede vivir sinmigo, y sus hijas no pueden vivir sin el" which is probably the incorrect way to say "Your son cant live without me and his daughters cant live without him" . She smiled and laughed, but I find many people here smile or laugh when they dont want to argue. I have found (in the short two months) that people avoid conflict as much as possible and often smile instead of arguing.
Anyone else have "non believers" they have had to contend with?
PS Im really not upset anymore , but I cant help pondering why she/they dont believe the girls and I are capable of living here? Its not THAT diffent from the States.
