  • My MIL babysits my SILs kids, but not mine. I say that's fine, I would never leave my kids with someone who didn't want to do so. Not fair to my kids. My FIL has one arm and no legs, and lives alone, so it's kind of out of the question.

  • I am a grandma and I dont always WANT to babysit my grandkids. I did it when they were little babies because my dd lived here and needed my help. My youngest is only 17 months older then my grandson so it is a little different. My youngest is now 5 (almost 6), my grandson is 4, and my granddaughter is almost 2. Now that my dd is in Kinder its a little easier, but they dont need my help as much.

    My mom never babysat for me either. She just isnt a kid person.

  • My mother, also doesn't want too. She had my older sister when she was 16 so, I think she just missed her freedom. It's not like she doesn't like to see her grandkids, but since she is single and still fairly young (44) she likes to go out and have fun. So it's hard to get her to watch them when she already has plans.

  • My MIL never offers so we have to ask, and it's never for a "fun" visit....it's just because we ask. They come around about 1 time a month.
