My sister-in-law is single, in her mid 40's, with no particular hobby or passion about anything. She's said that she wants to devote her life to my children (3 and infant). She means well, but often times I wonder if this is a selfless or selfish act. My issue with her is I work full time, she works a very flexible schedule. Often times she'll go pick up the kids from school (without consulting with me first, just with my husband/her brother), bath them and feed them. Granted this makes my life easier, but this is when I get to bond with them. Recently she started to even request accompanying me or my husband to the kids' doctor's appointment. Saturdays, she's always calling to see what we are doing. I feel like it's we've become her social calendar. She's extremely sensitive. On top of that, my husband is only off on Sundays, my sister-in-law and/or my mother-in-law are ALWAYS interested in what we are doing on weekends. How do I cut them off of our live a little without seemingly to cut them off completely? HELP!!!
