she never wants to spend time with any of her grandkids except when thier babies. she might let my.oldest son spend the night once ever couple of months and when she doez she dont get him until a friday evening then he is back home by 11 or so. she told him this time he could stay all day today well she is on her way with.him because she is keeping her other 2.5 mth old grandson all day until tommarrow! she got mad cuz my son woke up early and she didnt get to sleep.in. she says she is so excited about our soon to be daughter but once the newness wears off she wont have nothing to do with her just like all the others. its pathetic!

Well my MIL use to say.she didnt keep kids until they were 5 and she barely came to visit them. Now that my DS is 5 she says shes always busy and I would have to let her know a month before I needed her to watch them! My kids dont even like going to her house so im not worried about her watching them.

I don't know what to tell you.....my son is spending the night with grandma tonite.

She lets him stay whenever he wants.......but it's easy....she's lives in the apt above the garage.

Sorry...your mil can't be more of a grandma.

Well op ... some mils and gma's are like that. My mom was like that for awhile (it was just her) and she didnt take too much to my 3rd. But in the last year or more shes really stepped up. Especially with my 5 yr old ds and 2 yr old dd. My 7 month old is a dd too fyi. I say go about ur business and stop trying. Maybe she will come around? Idk mama.

Some people just don't know what to do with kids once they are beyond the baby stages.  Even if they've had kids of their own.  They simply don't know how to entertain them.  On the flip side, there are people who don't care to handle all that is involved with infants.  Everyone is different and you can't force it on them.

I've learned you can't MAKE people be what you want them to be.  It's her loss.

My kids don't stay over at my moms house. She isn't a babysitter. She has a life and she can do what she wants with her time.
