This is so an issue in my life as well. My parents live close by but mom still works and dad has too many anger issues to be considered a responsible babysitter. They just stick him in front of the TV so I have stopped asking. N's mom is a recovering alcoholic that I never feel quite comfortable leaving our son with, though I do maybe once every couple of months. And now with the new one coming I feel like we may never meet someone again.
