OK. She is the one being selfish. You need to inform her she is a grown up now. And you can do what ever you want, when you want. In form her she needs to find a different sitter for her play time. You need to get it in your head that you are not responsible for babysitting and raising her kids. If I were you I would tell her to start finding somewhere else to live.
