Rachael Finch has raised some eyebrows over the weekend admitting that every weekend her daughter stays at Grans house.
Rachael, who is married to dancer Michael Miziner, admits they have Friday and Saturday nights child free while Violet, 2, stays with Michael’s mother.
During the week the couple take turns to care for Violet, alternating around their work schedules. Then from Friday night to Sunday morning they have time to themselves while Grandma takes over.
“Every weekend (Violet) goes to Mish’s mum’s house, and we get our weekend to ourselves. I think that’s incredibly healthy for the relationship. And on Sunday, when we pick her up, we have 100 per cent energy back.” Finch told the Sunday Style.

Susie O’Brien who writes for the Herald Sun ponders the very question that instantly popped into my head, “I can’t help feeling that it’s a little sad. There’s not much time for the three of them to be together, and surely they’re missing out on some of that precious family downtime? You know, the lazy Saturday afternoon veg out time where the only priority is to be together, even if you’re not really doing anything much.”
Susie questions, “It also might be good for Finch and Miziner’s relationship, but is it good for their relationship with their daughter?”
When do they get family time? Movie night? Park play dates?
Would this work for your family?
