I'm so jealous of my friends who have retired mom's care for their kids. I don't think they get how lucky they are.

A couple of years ago my niece and her husband had lost their nanny (she had to quit to take care of her father) and were waiting for a spot to open up in a daycare center. They live in DC, and they finally decided it was cheaper and easier for his mother to fly in from Indiana for a couple of weeks at a time than it would be to hire someone else.

And my mother baby sat her godchildren for weeks at a time while the regular caretaker recovered from a broken leg, so yes, I hear you.
