I am blessed by the fact that my parents live close by and always want to spend time with my daughter. They constantly say they can watch her anytime if we need help. But they are so busy that working around their schedule to get daycare is more trouble than it is worth!
Example - Last week my husband had a 10:30am job interview. I was working from home and my daughter is 15 mos. Mom said, "Don't worry - we will take her so you can get work done!" When I called her to schedule a pick-up time, she said she'd come and get my daughter after her nap. That is around 2:30. My husband expected to be home around lunchtime so he would be there to help me all afternoon. I needed help in the morning - not the afternoon - but they figure just taking her at all is help.
Does anyone else deal with parents, relatives, or friends like this?
