I babysit for my sister in law ( her kids from a previous relationship - she is pregnant with my brothers first ) ....
I am suppose to babysit 2-3 days a week . My brother has days off during the week instead of the weekend... he takes care of the boys on his days off, which means I am just suppose to watch them the days she works...
BUT it seems like I end up watching them EVERYDAY ...
it has gotten worse since she has gotten pregnant.... she is "too sick" to watch her own kids... so when he leaves for work she will call or text telling me she is soo sick and wants me to come get them. on the weekends she gives me a guilt trip and actually puts the boys ont he phone and have them tell me how much they miss me and wants to come to my house....
I mean I do love them very much and i love them being here.... but it is like I have 4 kids ( I have 2 of my own) and they are all under 4 years old.... so if you can imagine I cant do much of anything else....
i started watching themt o help them out and to get to know them more ( they just came into our family last year) ... and I thought " what is 2 days a week going to matter, that is a good schedule to babysit" .... well now it is just too much and interferring(sp) with my family's life... i cant even go to the store or an appt... without finding a babysitter for all 4 of them !!!
so i have already told them we have to have a talk ( they are coming tonight so we can cookout on the grill) .... I just want some ideas on how to make them understand that I love the kids, but she needs to stop because they are her kids nad believe it or not millions of woman can still take care of their older kids while dealing with morning sickness... I mean hell my oldest sat on my lap as my head was in the toilet 24/7 ... but of course I want to be nice and not insulting ....

How do you clean your kid(s) mattresses? (If they still wet the bed at night)
