Am I wrong for doing this?
I have no problem with it.
When I went back to work when DS was a baby my mom offered to watch him if we paid for her to get a massage every week. A massage was a hell of a lot cheaper then full time child care, so we happily agreed
My mom did. She is a bitch. Not just because of that. Lots of reasons. She is very selfish as well.
My self and my brother haven't spoken to her in 6 years
Not at all. The definition of grandma doesn't include "free babysitter."
I would never charge my kids to watch their kids.
That being said I don't have grand kids yet.
Quoting over40bride: I would never charge my kids to watch their kids. That being said I don't have grand kids yet.
While I don't think it's outrageous to ask to be paid I know my parents never paid my grandma. She loved having me and wouldn't have taken it, in fact she usually asked if she could take me for the day. And my parents wouldn't take money to watch my kids if I shoved it in their hands. That's just my family though.
