My sister isn’t talking to me right now. Our mom lives out of town and I try to make time to visit her with my kids as much as I can. She likes to see us and offers to take care of my kids so I do take her up on that offer from time to time. It’s never been a problem between us. My sister wrote me last month accusing me of taking advantage of my mom by asking her to babysit too much. I talked to my mom and she told me that my sister had asked her to watch her kids but it was on a weekend that my kids were going to be with her and she couldn’t take them all. I assume my sister – who I think asks a lot from my mom, including for financial help – was irritated because she couldn’t get what she wanted this one time. I wrote her back defending myself, but I haven’t heard anything since. I don’t think I should have to reach out first but I don’t expect her to either. How long should I let this go on for? – Jackie in Kitchener
