My sister in law ( my husband's brother's wife ) has a nanny for her 2 kids ( 2 and almost 4 years old ) . She actually use to have one that lived with them, but then BIL said that he wasn't comfortable paying that much anymore, so now she just has the one come during the day Monday - Friday.... She is a stay at home mom. She also has a house keeper that comes 3 times a week ( and also for "special occasions"...
Since we are sister in laws and we live pretty close, we are friends and we see each other often. BUT she is becoming so annoying to me. She constantly complains about how stressed she is, how she has so much to do, and she never gets a break ( she literally said she never gets a break), it is like an ongoing thing of her complaining...
I think it annoys me because I too am a stay at home mom, BUT my kids are with me pretty much 24/7 ( I go somewhere without them maybe 3 times a month), and yet I am still able to clean my big house everyday, I can still workout, visit with friends, go shopping, and take care of my husband and our several animals ( we have a large rescue farm ) ... i don't even remember the last time I was able to go to the bathroom by myself... I think I should be the one complaining - NOT the one trying to "talk her off the ledge"
I mean I know she loves her kids, but it just does annoy me that she talks about how good she is with her kids, but yet spends so little time with them that she doesnt even know how to watch them or control them ( when they visit I am the one basically watching them while she sips on some wine ) .. and then she complains how she cant freaking get a break.....
I am nice and I have never been "confrontational" (sp) ... but I seriously think I am close to just smacking her and saying " you get a massage almost everyday, you get your hair done atleast 3 times a week, you dont have to cook, clean or even watch your own children, what the heck are you complaining about" ....
