All of my friends seem to be able to drop off their kids at their parents to be babysat or stay overnight on demand. Some even have their parents begging to keep the kids. Mine have never once asked. When I only had one son, I remember asking my mom to babysit so I could go to the movies. She said no, that she felt like I would try to start using her if she said yes. I was offended and didn't ask her to babysit again for 2 years (during which I had another son). Then I asked her to watch my kids for 3 days as I had been invited to visit a good friend in New York and go to a concert with her. I asked her 3 months in advance, and she said okay, but I noticed there was doubt in her voice. Nevertheless she said yes and said she would take the time off work. I brought up the trip a couple times in the following months. A week before my trip I called her to sort out the details, and she said sorry, but she had to work(cont)
