Ok so i have 3 boys the oldest is almost 3 and the twins are 20 months and my brother has a little boy that is 21 months old and he is on call 24/7 so my sis-in-law never has any time to herself so ive always helped her out here and there but when he was about 4 or 5 months old she was just always so tired so i would take him with me and my boyfriend (at the time) and we would go do somthing for the day. but as time moved on we would take him more and more because he just loves being with my boys and eventually we had him for the whole weekend and maybe 2 or 3 times a week. but then her mother died a few months ago and her mother and father lived in france (where shes from) and she went over there and stayed for 3 weeks but when she went she didnt want to have to drag the baby around so he stayed with us and my parents. well since her mother has been dead i think she has been depressed because she never does anything and her and my nephew lay around the house all the time so i have been taking him more and more and all she ever does is sleep. He calls me mommy but i always tell him no ashley and he can say it but he ignores me and i think he gets confused with my boys calling me mommy, so i dont really mind that but i always try to correct him. but he used to get excited when i would drop him off with her or she would pick him up but now he doesnt want to leave and he cries and wants to stay with me even when the boys are gone with their dad. and i can tell she gets upset when he does that and i dont know what to do i feel so bad for both of them i try to help her and him by taking him but i offer for her to come with us and she never wants to but its like she doesnt even care that she only sees her son 1 or 2 days out of the week and i know it would kill me.
i just have no clue what to do i think i should talk to my mom but i dont want her to get too worried about them and end up messing things up worse i just dont know any more soo confused
