I agree. Also, I am a parent who firmly belives that GP don't owe us anything and nor are they entitled to our dc. By relation, there is potential for a special relationship, but if that relation is not enough, then it just was not meant to be. I think you just have to let go of your expectation that they owe you childcare.

Agreed. They have no childcare obligations whatsover to you. They have an opportunity and it sounds like they do see their grandchild. Very different than being obligated to relieve you of the role you've chosen.
