I'm such a worry wart and now pissed at MIL

So, my inlaws wanted to take dd(4) to New York for 2 weeks(they live there). I said okay because I'm traveling this coming Friday. They leave this morning, and I tell her to call every 2 1/2 hours to let me know they're okay.

They left at 8:30am, its now almost 2:30pm, no phone call. I've called the cell and phone number, no answer.

I'm pissed.

then why did you let her go ? sounds like you don't trust them, unless they are horrible untrustworthy people. they have a right to be pissed.

every 2 1/2 hours is extreame.

It's a 5 hour drive. Call me when you're half way there and when you make it home. I don't think its that extreme.

I understand calling you to say how things are going. But how often do they see your dd ?

they probably forgot the time or could be somewhere cell reception is not good.

There are quite a few areas around here like that.

Give them a little time.

If nothing in an hour or so then you have every right to worry.

I just wish my kids only grandfather would spend time with them with out a reason. usually one that benefits him.

I understand your concern. I really do. I just know how important the relationship is.

I hope you get a all soon.

leave a voicemail and ask if everyone is having a good time ?

See if they return the call.

I thought you expected a call every 2 1/2 hours for the whole stay. what did you schedule for that ?

Yeah, I just got ahold of them. They're at their house, she said she got the voicemail I left and didn't feel like calling me back.

So, lesson learned. That will never happen again.

Chill out. Do you not trust them to take care of her or something

really? every 2 1/2 hours? That's a bit excessive don't you think? If you don't hear back from them soon, then you should start worrying.

So because they said they didn't feel like calling you back, you are going to deprive your child of seeing her grandparents in the future? Sounds a bit selfish to me.

No way in hell would I let my child go that young, and for that long!

Seriously every 2 1/2 hours? That is just down right ridiculous. If you do not trust them enough to handle your child you should have never let her go, and if you do trust them then trust that they will take care of her. Good grief lady they raised your husband I am sure they can handle a 4yo, holy crap some people are nuts. If they were dead or in an accident I am sure you would have been notified eye rolling
