I am sooo tired of my husband doing this ( need adivce)

My husband volunteered me to babysit his brothers 2 kids next week ( for about 6-7 hours ) ..My husband is taking his mom to the Drs and told her I would watch niece and nephew. N&N and their dad live with mother in law...and of course their dad cannot watch them.... the problem that I have is that these kids are awful !!! They will not listen to me at all, I will tell them not to do something and they will literally stare me down as they do what I told htem not to, they are mean to my 2 small kids and our 3 small puppies, the boy is 8 years old and still poops his pants, the 10 year old girl tries to steal.

I am soo mad at my husband and told him there is no way I am watching them and he laughs and keeps trying to say they are good ( because whenver they visit I am the one who watched them while he watches tv ) , I told him he better plan on taking them with him and MIL but * continued*

  • Lock them in a room with all HIS stuff. See if he still thinks they're angels when he gets home :)

    she actually has 2 Dr appts.... in another city ( we live in a small town) and the city is almost 2 hours away so 4 hours worth of driving and then the time of the actual appts and time for lunch adds it up

  • whip them kids into shape MAKE them behave! Even if this means time out for them don't let them run your home or make you feel this way. You need to demand respect.
