I am currently a stay at home mom ( until next year, my youngest will start school and I will be going back to school )... I spend my day cleaning my house and doing stuff with my son ( we also have 5 pets) ... Even though it might not sound like alot, it actually does take up my whole day until it is time to picks my other kids up from school ( and then by the time we come home, do homework, cook supper, clean up, do baths, etc.. there is like no time for anything else )
I am the only person in my family who does not have a job ( including my aunts, cousins, etc) .. So everyone automatically assumes i will watch their kids when they cant. But the thing is ... I HATE watching other peoples kids... I dont like it at all, I dont know why , but it bugs me so much, that as soon as they call to ask ( IF they do actually ask before showing up) it ruins my whole day.
My mom is the biggest person who does this...She will volunteer me to watch my neice or cousins kids without even asking me first, she will tell them just to bring them over to me.......... and then if I get mad and say no, she ( and them ) get mad, and even try to make me feel bad , saying that since I can just sit at home all day, I should watch their kids.... I think that is ridiculous !
I mean if it was an emergency or the parents are ina bind, then yes, I will watch the kids, thats fine..... but this is like a 4-time-a-week thing and it is driving me crazy !
