MIL watching baby, how to handle an awkward request for her to leave at end of day
When we first set up this plan to have both grandmothers watching my baby, I told my husband not to over commit because it will he awkward to scale back on commitments... And here we are, wanting to scale back our WEEKLY family dinners on Thursdays with his bro/his mom who watches my baby that day, to bi-weekly. I know if we wait till bro gets a job, that can be the reason to scale back to bi-weekly as blame it on “he’s busy now”. Unless my MIL doesn’t get the hint and thinks she will stay for dinner still every week, how would you tell her that she can leave and we no longer want to do dinner with her every week, but 2x a month only? Her days off are Thursday and Friday and she watches baby on Friday as well but we never agreed to Friday dinner so no issues there.
