sister in law wont babysit...

Last June my husbands sister moved in with us ( cheated on her husband and so he gave her the boot) I wasnt to happy at first because she is rude and a slob - but we have a mother in law suite and family is family .

She has no job, but my husband gives her money ( she lays on the guilt and he is bad about that) , she pays no rent or anything at all, so we are basically paying her to live here !

I have 8 year old twin boys who get off the bus at our house 35 mintues before i get home. I asked her if she could PLEASE keep her eye on them for that 35 mintues. and she said there is no way she is taking time to watch MY children. They are well behaved and smart, I mean she basically just has to make sure they get home and that they dont choke on the snack that they make themselves. Still she wont. I mean yes they are pretty much ok "watching themselves" but it just makes me sooo mad !!!!!

  • Why is she still living with you? Really, tell her to get a job and get out. If she is free to mooch off of your family she will. It would not hurt her at all to watch your boys. Good grief!

  • Smack your dh upside the head(softly) and tell him he needs to kick that worthless piece of trash to the curb. You tried, you were nice about it, and she is messing up your family. He needs to wake up, that is horrible and that "lady" needs to get a life.
