Quoting Glo♥:" Your MIL has no obligation to watch your child be grateful she does. She can do as she pleases with her ... [snip!] ... do as she pleases with her life that's not your problem that's between her and her husband. So pay someone to watch your kid."
we don't have the money! that's the whole problem, and it's so close to my finals weeks. I cannot miss 2 weeks worth of classes. I go every single day.
she didn't even consult this with us before she just went off and bought the tickets. I don't mind her going, but 2 weeks is a long time when it was only a weekend the other day.
she now wants us to pay the money the friend is loosing is she has to cut her trip short. How is THAT our problem when we told her to wait a day until I hear from my mom.
