I would pick the family friends. I would want my kids to be with the best fit for them, with someone who would raise them how I would.   Personally I wouldn't have even discussed it with SIL. The guardianship of my kids is not something I need to discuss with anyone except the people that I would like to care for them.
Oh my lord, she sounds like my ex's girlfriend (though she didn't break up our marriage). She is childless and has known my boys for just over a year of weekends and somehow thinks she's a better Mother than me. I spend a lot of time wanting to punch her in the face.
With my kids I'd always just say "say bye Sam and Sally, see you tomorrow!". I don't think it's harmful for your daughter to learn that it's polite to say goodbye when you leave.

Having read a few of the replies in the link you posted, I just feel sad for those Mum's.

I have other interests, I have friends, I do stuff I...
It sounds like way more is going on with her than just handwriting. I would try and get to the bottom of the problem rather than just  focussing on that.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the way you're feeling! You're a Mum but you're also a person, being a Mum doesn't mean you have to stop doing things for you as a person. Sure, you don't have the freedom to just drop everything and head out for brunch or dinner but you can *organise* time to do that! There is nothing wrong with organising a date with your girlfriends, get SO to watch your DS and go out for dinner and a movie with your girlfriends. Use naptimes to...
And also America was not the only country in the world that sent aid in the situations you listed. If you did some research you would find countries all over the world sent aid and helped. Your ignorance really is quite astounding.  
I would consider myself a SAHM. Does it really matter though?
