DH and I want to go out on Saturday night. We have a pretty famous comedian coming to our small town to do a gig at the local RSL, and we would really like to go. But!.......
I don't have a babysitter. MIL would come and babysit for us but that would mean she would have to look after the kids at our place (she lives 2.5 hours away). And that makes me very nervous I doubt I would enjoy myself at the show because I would spend the whole night thinking about what MIL is doing in my house
I'm not concerned that she won't look after the kids or anything like that, it's just HER being in my home, well, um, unattended that bothers me!
This is not new for me. My youngest child is 4 years old and MIL has never babysat in our home. Whenever she watches the kids (which isn't often) we drop them at her place, because usually we are heading to the city for something and her place is on the way.
Does anyone else feel this way? Or is it just me
MIL has a knack of making everything she does sound normal 'Well, doesn't everyone do that!' like, doesn't every grandma come and babysit in the kids own home!?!.
Anyway I am soooo undecided on what to do. Suggestions? TIA XXX
