How often do you see your extended family? (ie. in-laws and your parents)
We have a one year old boy and just lately there has been alot of upset and pressure between our families over who gets to see our son more. On average I goto my families house one evening a week and on thursday they will look after him from 2-6 (the time I'm at work). With my in-laws we go over for dinner one night a week and they like us to spend all day on Sunday with them.
The problem is because my husband is away for work alot we in our little family aren't getting much alone time together and my in-laws think its unfair that my parents get to babysit by themselves. I feel like a piggy in the middle atm because I'm copping it from both sides.
If you have any suggestions or explain what you do I would really appreciate it.
