    I reckon do some trials with the local girl and organise a date night asap. If you can't cope with the thought of MIL in your house on her own don't even bother entertaining the thought in future. Just have something else in place for the kids so you can have a break xx

    I wouldn't leave my DS with my MIL more than 2 hours. She isn't well all the time and too much activity and stress (she's a worry wart) isn't good for her.
    If my DS needs overnight or two nights care he goes to my parents for the weekend.
    I've had my BIL & SIL babysit him once when I had to attend a wedding near them. I also get my sister or close friends to babysit if need to.

    Shock, gasp, but some are actually manipulative, nosey cows.
    The gate swings both ways and the same can be said for DILs, not saying that is going on with anyone in this thread, but there are certainly nasty ones out there.

    I think OP you should get yourself a local babysitter though, it seems a shame to miss out on things like that.

    Id prefer to use someone we know and who the kids are comfortable with to babysit the kids rather than a random babysitter that is praticially a stranger.
