OK, I understand why the plan seemed a good idea. Mom's help and the availability of the car, makes good sense. I doubt that mom is actually planning to take your child away from you, but maybe she's thrilled at this chance to look after the kid ( an her joy may be modified by some of the chores involved, when reality will set in ). Suggesting you remain in Joburg just in case hubby changes his mind about his new job sounds rather excessive, though. I understand that they might not want to do anything to encourage a depression i you, but neither keeping the baby nor letting mom care for it for a while is especially likely to do that. Why not discuss this with your husband, calmly but frankly ?
And as others suggest, examine the option of you going to Durban, even if you take long leave from your current job --- wouldn't you have a better chance of getting a better-paying job if you are actually there to seek it ?
