My husband and I are both young 21 & 24. We have a 5 month old daughter. We live next door to my husbands parents. They own our house and are letting us live here for free. They are wonderful and always willing to help. But the problem is, they think they need to see out daughter every day. My mother in law finds excuses to come over and wants my daughter all the time. She always tells me she knows Im exhausted and need a break and should let her keep her for awhile. Always trying to get me to let her keep her. It is every single day. She has ran out of her house to catch us one day as we were leaving, just to see my daughter. They used to baby sit every day, but now it is down to one day a week because they have different ideas of parenting than I do and I could not handle seeing them that much, but they still think they need to see her everyday. Sometimes I feel mean for not wanting them to have her and find myself making excuses as to why she needs me holding her(tired,cranky,doesnt feel good) because I am so tired of handing my daughter over to them everyday. Don't know what to do!?
