Hmm, tricky one.

Since your PILs only babysit for your every couple of months and you are not staying out late for the sake of it, but because your DH is in the band, then I think that it is ok to have different rules.

You could suggest that the PILs keep a spreadsheet with the hours babysitted for each family recorded on it. They can add 10% for hours after 10pm.

i think YABU to assume that is the reason they have imposed the curfew.

I guess, strictly speaking, they are doing you a favour so it is up to them what time you come home - but since they havent mentioned it I would just leave it at that.

They probably never expected you to know about the curfew

I don't think it matters, PIL are doing a favour and so you have to fit in with their wishes. I would find other babysitters so that you don't have to rely on just family.

ooops, yaNbu to assume!

I agree with Mmelindt, yours is a one off, they were obviously having sitters wait up until midnight every saturday night - which is out of order when they are doing it free and as a favour
