I've been friends with this woman for nearly 15 years, I'm 25 now so we've been friends more than half our lives. Her kids call me auntie and mine call her the same; the kids also refer to each other as cousins and are just as close as any family. The problem is she is a flake so to speak; she's lied, betrayed and blown me off more than a few times. I believe she has good intentions and sometimes does things despite me telling her not to because she thinks it'll be better in the end; but there's just so many times a person can be hurt before it gets to be too much.
Today she called me to see if me and my kids wanted to sleep over at her place, she needs someone to watch her oldest for a few hours and then we had made plans to spend the day together so the kids can play while she and I hang out. Around 11 AM the call disconnected while we were talking, I tried calling back but the call wouldn't connect so I sent her a text. It's now 10:30 at night and she hasn't called or replied to my text. My kids were upset because they love spending time with her and the kids and were told we'd be staying there tonight but now its too late, the kids are in bed and she never even bothered to let me know if she found someone else to watch her daughter in the morning. What I hate is when my kids look at me and ask why auntie hasn't called and ask why we aren't going over there now.
My friend has not always been like this and there are times when we'll go months where we talk almost every day, spend almost every weekend at her house, or mine, or going somewhere fun for the kids. Those are the times, that is the friend, I don't want to lose. I still consider her my sister, she may piss me off at times but so doesn't everyone else in my family. I also don't want to lose the relationship I have with her kids and I know she loves my kids just as much as I love hers.
