If you have a bad relationship with your mil overall, would you let her babysit your toddler?

Yep and she has plenty of times! They live 4 hours from us so when we are there, we usually go off for a couple of hours so my mil and fil have time with the grands w/o us there. Win/win situation for us! We get quiet time for the 2 of us and the kids get spoiled by grandpa and grandma!!

My MIL lives in NY.  I am in NC.  She has never met my kids.  I would probably let her though.  She did a pretty good job with my husband.

No as I wouldn't let any dead person around my kids.

Depends.. If she is good to my children, of course she can watch them.. 

Whatever happens between me and her, have nothing to do with my children :)

My mil and I have a great relationship so yes she baby sits for me all the time. She is usually our first choice.

No. But mostly because she doesn't even try to see her granddaughter. Her loss. She's a witch who plays favorites with her kids/grandkids.
