Re: Grandparents watching kids?
For full time care I would pay grandparents unless they really won't take it. If that is the case they I would "pay" them someother way.
for example--my mom has watched our kids a lot over the years. We have never had to pay for a babysitter outside daycare, so when her dishwasher broke we bought her (2/3 of the cost) a new one.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.
