I have her kids ALL the time and they are good kids. 7 kids total mine & hers. She can't even handle her own! Her mom lives w/ her and she is able to leave them when she had any errands to run. I pick up and take the oldest two to school everyday, her mom stays and watches the little one for her to go to work, which is a rarity, she works part time and maybe 2 days or even no days a week. When she does work, she is always off by 3 pm. Mostly she just goes out and window shops or runs errands. She just left for a week and her mother and I have the kids. I really don't mind. I love them, but her reason was b/c she was too stressed out. From what???? She doesn't have to cook, or clean her mom does all that. She doesn't have to watch her kids either? Do I just sound like I'm jealous of her carefree life? Or am I justified to wonder what is wrong w/ her?

It sounds like you and her mother are enabling her to be a lazy Mom. I think if her Mother wont back off in the help department, you def should. Make her realize what being a Mother really is like, force her to take care of the children she obviously wanted at one point. Ugh...I can't stand ignorant Women like that.
