"Welcome to WiseWomenUnite.com -- When adult children marry and leave home, life can sometimes get more complex instead of simpler.  Being a mother-in-law or daughter-in-law can be tough.  How do we extend love and support to our mothers-in-law, adult children, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, and grandchildren without interfering?  What do we do when there are communication problems?  How can we ask for help when we need it without being a burden?  And how do our family members feel about these issues?  We invite you to join our free forum, read some posts... and when you're ready...share your challenges and wisdom."

J2b, I think dil feels threatened, but have you read what she does.  This is far beyond a simple competition.  Some of the stuff she does is truly unbelievable.  Even putting her children at risk sometimes.  Sending grandson to school sick out of spite for me??  Is that something mother's usually do ??

Frankly, your dil sounds over the top.  If she really thought you couldn't be trusted with the kids then there's no way she would let you sit them.  She's speaking out of both sides of her mouth.

I'm sorry...but it sounds like you are in a horrible catch 22 situation.
