My brother and his fiance are always asking me to babysit their 18 month old son. On Mother's Day, on New Year's Eve, (actually calling on those days), for doctor's appointments, final exams, etc. I am getting tired of always being asked. It's my fault for having a hard time saying no. But I am reaching my boiling point. I've already watched him Saturday, overnight, didn't sleep well. Then I get asked Sunday if I can watch him Tuesday and Wednesday for dr appt. and 3D ultrasound appt. because they don't want to entertain him during the appt. Then while on a nice lunch with a friend yesterday (I declined watching him Tues even though they asked) I get asked to watch him again on Friday so she can take her final exam.
I am feeling taken advantage of and I am nearing the point of just exploding. How can I bring up with the subject with them without any feelings hurt?
