My mother–in–law, whom I adore, just visited us for a long weekend. She loves our babe and is always eager to spend every second with her.

As I work on Fridays, my babe usually spends the afternoon with her nanny. But since "Mimi," as we call her, was here and available, she offered to watch my babe and give the nanny a paid day off.

This situation got me thinking, would you prefer to have your sitter or mother-in-law watch your tot?
