I am 22 years old and i have a two year old son. my fiancee has two children also who i have been caring for for the past four years. i love them dearly but i am so tired. i have them every day, 7 days a week, and i never get a break. i have asked my fiancee to find a babysitter because i honestly do not think i can handle it anymore. He doesnt seem to care. He says he will find someone but never does and he guilts me into watching them anyway. I do not mind doing it a couple times a week because i love them dearly but its too much for me to handle. Anyone have any advice for me? Am i being selfish?Answer Question

Will you be sending you little one to daycare as well or will only the step kids be sent away each day? If you are not willing to do what it takes to be a family with this man I would suggest moving on. He will become resentful if you treat your own child differently than his children. Tell him you need a break and hire someone to sit for all the kids two days a week. Then you have time to get things done and take a break. As a step child raised by a step mom who let us know we were a burden the kids are who get hurt in these situations. My step mom loved us but not like her bio kids with our dad. We went to daycare while our siblings got to stay with her. Our mom was not in our lives at all so to us she was mom. It was hurtful and in time my dad left her so we would not be second class citizens in our own home. Be very careful how you handle this so you don't hurt these kids.
