Taken from life. Mother-in-law demands money for taking care of grandchildren. Meanwhile, she offered to look after them herself
“Will you pay me money to sit with your child? Or did I sit with your kids for free?” said the mother-in-law.
When the young mother told her husband that she understood his resentment for not having time for him, she added something that had been on her mind for a long time.< /p>
She described her normal, routine day, during which she takes care of the children and the house from the morning, then runs for two hours to work, after which she has children, the house and everything related to taking care of her husband again. In the evening, when all the household members are present, she just prostrate…
She offered to hire a nanny, especially since they could afford her services. The husband agreed with understanding the difficult situation of his beloved wife, but he firmly pointed out that this was to be a very trusted person.
The unexpected rescue had its good and bad side…
And after a few days, they began to look for a suitable nanny. They were looking for ads, they asked friends. And then they started to choose the right nanny.
None of the candidates who applied for the interview gained the confidence of their spouses. Either an inexperienced teenager, or a pregnant woman in high pregnancy, or an old lady who was not going to comply with the rules of their home…
They were both resigned and tired of this bizarre casting, and then the phone rang – the wife's mother called. Her mother-in-law was a smart and modern woman, her children were already adults, so she devoted her time entirely to herself. She met with friends, went to yoga, to the seaside, visited exhibitions and went to the theater. She also worked as a cashier at a local store.
– Mom, we're fine. We are currently looking for a nanny! We can't find her anywhere. Want to visit us? Okay, I'll see you tomorrow. Hugs! her son-in-law answered and hung up.
– Mom obviously wants to help us somehow… maybe she has a nanny friend?! — said the husband to his wife.
Mother-in-law came the next morning
She immediately walked around the apartment looking for her grandchildren, whom she brought gifts. When she ordered the elder to distribute the gifts among everyone equally, and woke up the several-month-old Piotruś, made him cry and put it down like a broken doll, she allowed herself to be invited to the kitchen for tea.
A hot drink and her daughter and son-in-law were waiting for her at the table. When resigned, they returned to the subject of the nanny and asked if maybe mum knew someone willing to do such work, she declared her help, claiming that it would only last until the youngest of the children grew up a bit.
The couple gratefully agreed and immediately began preparing to accommodate the additional family member. The spouses were able to work in peace, both full-time, while the mother looked after the children in their absence.
After a month, however, she said that she was tired without her friends, going out to clubs, trips and liqueur meetings.
– I'm going home. And I need money! – She told her children. The young people did not know what to answer, they silently looked at their mother-in-law.
– What? Will you give me the money?
– Mom. Did you sit with our children just to make us pay you?
– What did you think I quit my job and now I'm sitting with my grandchildren for free? This is work too. All day I sit with your children, cook and clean. I'm giving you time for yourself!
As it turned out, the young people did not pay attention to the fact that the mother actually quit her job to devote herself fully to her grandchildren, but she declared help, not services, so it did not come they don't think they'll be billed at the end.
Although they didn't expect this to happen, they decided to pay their mother for childcare, but next time they'll be more specific about what terms someone proposes help them.
