Does anyone else notice that their grown up children have an expectation that they can go away for the weekend to see friends, leaving their other half to look after young children.
My DS has just emailed to ask if I can support phone/email/text my DinL as both children have a flu type cold and are not sleeping well. This happens every time he goes away and I feel on call all the time !
My DinL also goes away for weekends so we often go to help our DS whilst she is away. We do this for her too sometimes.
Their friends seem to do the same, Spa Weekends etc.
When our DS was small we never went our separate ways, but it seems it is the norm nowadays with affluent young couples.
Any thoughts or am I being a killjoy. .
