Re: How do you Survive in Same town as Parents/In Laws?
My mom is my nanny. I see her daily and she cares for my kids while I work. We don't have any other options for people with DS's special needs, so it isn't like I can find alternate care.
Do I agree with everything she does? Nope. Do I pick my battles? Yep.
IMO, it is about attitude. If you prepare yourself for "She's crazy" she won't disappoint. If you prepare yourself for mother of the year, you'll leave mad every time. You just have to go in with the attitude that she is going to drive you nuts and do everything the opposite of the way you would.
