Her Mother-In-Law Begged To Babysit But Then Didn’t Show Up To Watch Her Newborn On Time, So She Revoked The Privilege And Had Her Mom Babysit Instead

“And I knew my mother-in-law would probably hang around and talk with her daughter for a bit while there, so I wasn’t expecting a message until 11:30 a.m. or 12:00 p.m.,” she explained.

Well, hours passed by, and by 2:00 p.m., she still had not heard from her mother-in-law. By that point, it was also too late for her to get all of the errands done, which is why she just told her mother-in-law never mind.

Her mother-in-law apologized and offered to take the baby the following day. However, she told her mother-in-law no and decided to ask her own mom to babysit instead.

She did this even though her mom did not get off of work until mid-afternoon, leaving her with less time to get her errands done.

She realizes that it would have just been easier to allow her mother-in-law to babysit her newborn.

“But I felt like my mother-in-law had disrespected my time– although I don’t feel like she did it on purpose– and I made my decision for the sole reason that I didn’t want to reward her for it,” she vented.

Still, ever since basically denying her mother-in-law an opportunity to babysit, she’s been left wondering whether that was a jerky move or not.

Can you understand why she got frustrated by her mother-in-law’s flaking? Do you think she did the right thing by having her own mom babysit instead? What would you have done?
