Do not commit to doing this every weekend - just occasionally. Her biggest complaint is that you do not spend enough time with her. By staying home all weekend while she and your kid go to her mom's, you are perpetuating this feeling. During the week you both work, and then are tired when you get home. The weekend is the time to relax and spend time with your family. Think about how much time with your kid you are missing out on by staying home. Bottom line - she is pissed you do not go with them.
Oh - and if you really want to earn some points bring her mom flowers.
I most Sunday afternoons with my wife and kids at my inlaws house. Usually 2 or 3 hours. It does nothing for me but makes my wife happy. Work to make her happy and it usually comes back around to her wanting to make you happy.
