Hi! I'm an Oct '12 mom, going back to work in January, which I have mixed emotions about. Adult conversation, yay! Having to get dressed daily, boo!
Anyway, I've been lurking on this board occasionally for a while now; it seems most of you use daycare or hire a nanny. Is there anyone out there who uses family as a 'nanny'?
When I return to work, my MIL will watch our daughter at her home. My mom retires in June, and will then switch off days with MIL.
Just curious if anyone else on this board has/will have to deal with family members helping take care of your children. As much as we appreciate their help, it also worries me a little bit that it may cause some family tension if things don't go well/we don't like what they're doing, etc. I have no problems with either of them how they interact with LO now, so I don't know if I can imagine much issue, but you never know.
Would love to know there's someone else out here who could offer advice if/when I'll need it!
That's all. ANd I hope to participate a little more now =)
