So my mom is ariving tomorrow from europe and i am about to have a panic attack. Reason being that i haven't seen my mom since august 1998, we have talked on the phone regularly but haven't seen her in over 9 years. She is comming for my wedding and she will stay with me and my fiance untill the end of january. I am really worried how that will affect our relationship. She doesn't speak any english and he doesn't speak any bulgarian - i assume most guys would absolutely love to have that barrier with their mother in law. I can translate which will be good and i have done it well in the past when he met my auntie but there will be 1-2 hrs everyday when the 2 of them will be on their own wile i get back from work. (he gets home at 5 i get home at 7) He is nervous and scared and excited and i am afraid how all this will afect our relationship esp when its added to the stress of our wedding, work, hollidays and all this. We will also have to meet my mom with his family which i loose breathing cappabilities just thinking about it. I need some brainstorming what will be a good way to cope with this situation so he doesn't feel leftout, neglected, stressed or overwelmed as well as give the time and attention to my mom since we haven't been together in so long. I am not sure what exactly i am expecting but i have noone else to talk about it and i need venting and moral support. I have a history of fighting with my mom and i hope to god this doesn't resurfice. I try to belive that we have both changed since the time i was in puberty and she was in menopause but i am still very affraid, i want her to have a great vacation with us and not have any conflicts with neither of them.
