Re: Am I overprotective?
Overprotective not at all. My dd didn't stay overnight at grandma's till she was 3.5 yrs old or nearly 4 yrs old. Ds will be 3 yr tommorrow and he hasn't yet stayed the night away from us either. As for sitters watching them, mamma needs a break now and then...mostly Dh and I switch off but we have let grandma babysit for an hour or so every so often since he was maybe like 1 or 1.5 yrs old. Now that he is older I have used the grandma babysitting a little more often like 1-2 x a month.
