I am so mad that I just have to vent. What is wrong with some mothers? This girl that I babysit for asked me to watch her 11 month old over night and I had no problem with it. She dropped him off and after she walked out the door I noticed he was sick. Now I am sick and I am so mad at her. I brought it up to her about him being sick the next day and she acted like she had no idea. How do you not notice green snot running down your kid's face? It happened too soon after she walked out for me to believe he did not have this problem at home.
My problem, and why I am so mad:
1. How can a mother be so disrespectful to leave her sick child with a pregnant woman that has her own one year old?
2. How can a mother think that going out and drinking with her friends is more important than staying home with her child when they are sick?
I was a single mother once, so I know that once in awhile you need to go out with your friends to have fun and get a break. But I never would have never left my child with anyone, let alone with a pregnant woman who has her own kid. I never would have left my child period when they were sick just to go out drinking. I can't believe how some women think drinking with their fiends is more important than taking care of their child, especially if they are sick.

I'm sorry sweets! That does suck. It wouldn't bother me if a mom was leaving her kid with me to go out and drink, to each their own and everyone needs to blow off some steam. Someone KNOWINGLY leaving a sick kid with me, yes, that would pee me off.

I understand that sometimes stuff happens but I would find it completely rude on ANY day for someone to leave their sick kid anywhere.
