VeryHappy, I wish that we could have babysat but the parents dismiss any concerns about children and Covid as foolish overreactions and would be angry at the implication that they were doing something unsafe.
D has made it clear that H and I are not to say another word to them about Covid, masks, vaccinations, etc. We were also invited to a party at their house and declined without giving any reason, just said we’re sorry we cannot come. D said she expected us to refuse but felt she had to ask anyway.
We continue to babysit in our home a couple of times a week so we won’t be strangers if the need arises for us to provide long term care at some point. It’s the biggest risk we take.
