  • My kids are 12 and 16 so I think they would do fairly well without me. For their sakes I hope my MIL would not take it upon herself to come. I would hope my mom would be able to. With her I would not worry, with my MIL my kids would have to babysit her. )c:

  • I was in the hospital for two weeks after a car accident when my daughter was eight months old. Because I'm a single mother, my mother and step-father took care of Alice. She had a real hard time with my mother trying to bottle feed her, because she had been breast fed, so they ended up bringing her to the hospital during the day so I could nurse her. Also, after a couple of days in the hospital, my boobs were killing me.

  • My kids are 17 and 15 but I suppose the hubby(soon to be ex)would help out.

  • My inlaws, I suppose, with the help of my BIL and his wife. They would have a hard time, since I have 4 children and three will be in school this year, but they could handle it, I'm sure.

  • My parents would come out to take care of them (well, my mom would come--they both work so they couldn't both take off of work). We live overseas right now, and my mom actually carries her passport in her purse in case there is ever an emergency and I need her here.
