When Grandparents And In-Laws Come To Stay

Right now, my stress level is at an all-time low: My parents are visiting from India and they have taken over many of the little tasks that make up my to-do list. They'll stay with my family for eight weeks.

Among the ways they help out: They drive my son to his activities, drop him at school if he misses his school bus and make sure he eats a snack when he gets home. They get my daughter ready for daycare, take her on playdates and teach her important skills like how to color and count.
