My Parents

Your Parents Or Your Kids

Call my crazy but when it comes to devoting my time and energy, I'd rather spend it on my own kids than on my parents. My husband, on the other hand, consistently chooses his parents over our two children. For example, he will choose to give his parents a ride to the airport over taking/pick up one - or both - our kids to/from a playdate. It's frustrating as hell. I love my parents and I am there for them when I can, but with life being so full and hectic, there are many times I will tell them I can't help them with whatever they need and instead focus on my children. Am I wrong? Adults should be able to solve their own problems. And it's the children who should be the priority, no? My husband disagrees with me.
