Even if they weren't so cool, I would do it if necessary..

But if you're not comfortable with it don't do it. That's my opinion.
He actually said to me once, when his mom agreed with him about something, and I disagreed with both of them, that since it was 2 against 1 we had to do it his way.
Umm....YOUR MOTHER IS NOT A PARTY TO OUR DISAGREEMENTS ABOUT OUR CHILD!!!!!!!!!!! SHE DOES NOT GET A SAY!!!!!!!!!
Ok, I'm sorry to use your thread to rant about my own problems. Rant over.
i mean if I left town and came back I would totally stay with my inlaws (and I am not even married to their son any more) but if my mom lived here too she would be my first choice because its my mom....
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
If your parent slive in the same town and you get along with them, I can't see why anyone would expect you to stay with your ILs. I actually get along much better with my ILs, so I frequently stay with them without my dh (he can't get much time off work to travel with us) and just visit my parents for a few hours one day.
If anything, I need hubby as a buffer with my own parents.
But, I don't find it weird that you don't stay with them. If anything, I always get questions about why I'm not staying with my own parents. The other thing I sometimes do is arrange for my MIL or my own mother to spend time with my older son by themselves. I don't really think of it as babysitting, since I'm not looking for someone to watch my kid, but I find that they enjoy the alone time much better than if I'm there with them.
(They are also not allowed to babysit the girls.)
