I don't have any family that are able to watch my kids due to age or location, so we rely on my husband's parents who live nearby to babysit for us. My husband and I love to travel, and he would like for us to go away without the kids one week a year to explore new places together. This sounds great to me, but I also don't want to put too much pressure on the in-laws to babysit. They are in their early 50s and in good physical health, but they say that our kids tire them out, so I'm not sure how much they want to babysit. If your parents/in-laws watch your kids for overnight trips, how often do they do it? I know everyone's circumstances are different, but I'm curious what the average is.
