Honest or Impolite?
I have a cousin who wants to come visit with her toddler and dog. Last time they came they were sick and got my two boys sick. I said big dog needs to stay downstairs (finished guest suite) or outside (acre fenced yard). Within minutes the dog was in the main part of the house and my boys were screaming as the dog licked them and knocked over the younger one. Her toddler dripped milk all over my house and almost ruined my portable crib. She is hinting she would like to come again. Am I better off being honest and saying you can come as long as....or should I just not acknowledge the hints?
