My MIL lives close by and watches my kids often. She knows where everything in my house is and she know the kids routines very well. We were planning on having her and my mom watch the kids for 2 nights and 3 days while DH and I go on a mini vacation. My mom knows the kids and they are comfortable with her but she doesn't see them often and she is not super comfortable in my house and doesn't know where everything is at.

The kicker is that my MIL had carpal tunnel surgery on her dominant hand (right) and we were planning on leaving 9 days after her surgery. Do you think this is a bad idea? She says she will be fine but I am worried it will be too much for them. My MIL won't be able to use her right hand at all. We planned this only because my mom would be visiting and the kids would have 2 people to watch them.

So what would you do? Do we go or do we cancel? Maybe just do a local day trip or something? I hate to flake on my husband but I don't want my MIL to destroy her hand by doing too much either.

The twins will be done with kindergarten so it will be watching all 4 kids (3, 4, 6, 6)
