I was trying to think of it from the mil's point of view though, as I don't think it has been considered so far.
- I have relatives that dump their kids with their parents on a regular basis. I hear about this as their parents whinge to my parents (my response is always "say no or stop your whinging!"). So I am wondering how much the mil is a 'willing' participant.
When I am 50-60 I'm not going to be day-dreaming about looking after a 2.5 year old 2 nights per week!.
