my mil watches atleast one of my kids almost every weekend. i have 3 and sometimes ill leave all 3 with her or send the 2 oldest to my mother's and leave the baby with my mil. it's only for one night so hubby and i can go out. she has never asked for money but i have never offered, so it got me thinking, should i atleast offer to pay her, even though she'd probably say no anyways? do you offer, do your parents/inlaws expect money to watch your kids? thanks.

Every weekend! It sounds like you are taking advantage of her big time. Free babysitting or when ever you need it babysitting is not a given. My mom has done some babysitting for me, and while she won't accept money I do always make sure I at least buy her lunch or dinner. I also leave money with her to cover any expenses she might incur taking my kids out to eat or taking them to places with an admission fee.
