So her mom can’t watch your two kids as well as your SIL’s son? Or you can’t hire an additional sitter to watch your kids while you stay at her house? I don’t understand why your kids have to go somewhere else.

That makes sense why her mom couldn’t handle watching more than one kid, but have you asked if you can hire a sitter to come watch you kids at her house?  If you don’t want to say that it’s because you don’t like Future Father-In-Law (if that would offend her) you can say that the kids enjoy spending time with her son and that’s why you’d prefer staying at her place.

OP, why doesn’t your SIL want to rhave a babysitter to look after all 3 kids at SIL’s house?  That way SIL’s mom doesn’t have to babysit, and it solves the issue of having to have kids stay at different houses.

Would that work? Does she not want to hire a sitter for her son?  Would it help if you agreed to pay her share of the sitter costs to look after all 3 kids?

Stay in a hotel and hire a sitter to watch the kids there?

What about getting a babysitter for the night?

There has to be some sitter somewhere who can watch the kids. No teenage neighbours?
