My (extended) family expects me to have 'time' to do everything for them!!! Because I am a SHAM. My mom who works 60 hours a week wants me to travel to her house about 30 mins. away to clean her house and cook her dinner. My aunts want me to watch there kids 45 mins. away everyday.
I became a SAHM to Stay at home for my son and my DH. How are some nice ways to say 'NO.'

No matter how you say it they will not like it. I'd say no calmly and firmly and would not give them any explanation or excuse because it is your right to say no period, you don't need a reason to give. They asked a YES or NO question. You should say NO. If they cannot accept your answer; oh well, don't feel bad because to me that would mean they were really not asking in the first place and that they felt entitled to your help.That type of attitude is really sickening and should not be tolerated at all. You are not there to serve them or be at their beck and call. Just simply say no. If they ask why and you can't say because I said no. Then say something like, because I want to do other things with your time and leave it at that. Do not argue with them just end the conversation quickly. They're the ones being unreasonable for not accepting your answer in the first place.
