Do any ADs ever stay over night at their grandparents's

My parents offer to take the kids whenever they can.

Both my AD and younger DS have stayed at their grandmas' houses. The longest Evan (who's 2) has stayed was 4 nights, and Aidan has stayed a whole week. He only stayed that long because I'm taking an intensive summer class this month and my mom volunteered to watch him for me (she's a teacher and off summers). Both my mom and MIL have volunteered to keep the boys, but I have also asked a time or two. They never mind, and are always happy (the boys love it too!).

I don't know how close you are to your MIL, but maybe you could just run the idea by her casually, like mentioning you could use the alone time with DH and seeing if there's a good night she could keep the kiddos. If she jumps at the chance, take it (lol), but if she hem-haws (sp?) that'll give you an idea that she's not ready. You never know, she may have wanted to ask but was unsure of your reaction!

The kids don't do it that often but mostly because I can be a bit selfish about their overnight time since the weekends are my only time with them.

My kids have a few times and would do it more often if we lived in the same state (SOON!!!).

Our boys have stayed at mine and dh's parents before and I think it totally acceptable for you to ask them to watch the kiddos....our parents enjoy the time with the kids...however the twins have never stayed the night anywhere and I'm scared to have our parents have all 4 kids at once.
