  • I was going to agree with lstrickland.... maybe if you can't go this time, you can tell your MIL that you would like to plan a sleepover where you can be there to help out so the kids won't wear her out.

  • Why do they need to stay overnight? Won't a visit with the great grandmother and a return to your home be sufficient?

  • I don't see why they'd need to stay overnight just to visit. That aside, if you feel she is untrustworthy because of her legal trouble it's well within your right as the parent to say no.
