I recently got married... I have 2 boys from a previous relationship, they are 1 and 2 years old... My husband is able to adopt them in March ( 6 months after getting married ) ... and his family as been treating them as if they are really his kids ( I am also 5 months pregnant ).....So of course I am always tired and I also have to work... One of my husbands cousins also has 2 small kids and her husband lost his job so she said she would watch my boys ( she knew we were looking for a babysitter) ... so she would watch them both from afternoon to night ( usually when I would work, and then I would go home and get a quick nap before picking them up) ... I would give hr $20 for each day she watched them...
Everything was good for awhile I was even glad I had her because she would feed them and bath them and i wouldnt have to worry about it...but then she would call and say she couldnt watch them if they were sick ... I thought tht was crappy because they are 4 small kids, one of them will always be sick...
Then I had texted her and told her in January she will only be watching my 1 year old because i am sending my 2 year old to daycare and that i will only be paying her $10 .... she wrote back and said ok, but then wrote back and asked if she could get $15 or if I would bring his own food..... and I thought that was rude and I wrote back and told her nevrmind, that i decide i will just send my 1 year old to daycare too since I couldnt keep finding another sitter everytime the kids were sick.. and then she wrote back that the only time her kids were ever sick is when I would send my kids sick... GRRRR I am just so mad, she doesnt understand that kids will always be sick, that is theirnature.... I am just so glad I decided to send them to daycare instead of to her.

HaHa, good luck on sending your kids to daycare sick. They will call you immediately to come pick them up. I hate to tell you this put, from what you just told us, you were the one being rude.

Next question overall
Is there anything I should do to prepare my 14 month old for a new baby?
