Are your parents/in-laws generous w/ their time and money w/ your family??
Just wondering & curious what it's like for the rest of you moms out there. My in-laws, who I live next door to, are usually generous. Like they will babysit if there is a drs appt (if they are home and not off somewhere enjoying retirement). When the recession hit a few years, back my hubby's hours dropped below 40 and they would get us a bag of groceries here and there(mostly food for the kids and we did not qualify for assistance) and they are generous w/ toys at Christmas and make our 3 kids' b-days special...but as far as giving us cash, not really.
My dad, however, is the real life Ebenezer Scrooge, with me & my family anyway. Not much money and not much of his time and he would never babysit. He's not into kids and likes to be by himself. The thing is he has A LOT of money...he spends it on himself or his longtime girlfriend. He has always been this way...I have always worked for whatever I have and need and I certainly don't expect large cash donations or anything (lol) I was just wondering how your parents help you....
How is it for you ladies??
