My inlaws...they are the only ones allowed to watch my girls. I don't trust my family to watch them at all.

My MIL and her SO- yes

My FIL and his wife- no

My parents only if it's not going to be for an extended period of time.

My MIL yes, because we're close.  My FIL, no, because he's only seen our kids once.

Yes I trust them. I trust in-laws & my immediate family. Actually MIL is going to be watching him when SO & I take our cruise in October.

Yes and no lol.  Some of the things my in-laws do/don't do as far as raising kids annoys the crap out of me, so leaving DS with them for long periods of time isn't something I would do even though I love them to death.  But for a few hours here and there I'm fine with, maybe even a day.  My parents I could leave DS with forever and not even think twice about it.

Eh...I both do and do not trust DBs parents; it's complicated. As for my family, I totally trust my parents and some siblings, but there are a few I would not want alone in the same room with him, much less babysitting.

My youngest has type 1 diabetes. My parents learned how to take care of him, ILs did not so we don't leave him alone with them.

 I do for the most part, they hardly ever take my kids... Now my dh's brothers 5 kids, they have no problem taking and having them sleep over... I guess they need it more then ours.... *sarcasm, of course.*

I do not trust either of my younger brothers with my kids. They are 29 and 21, both morons.
