Are you a mom?

I am pregnant with our first baby ( girl ) , I plan on going back to work when my maturnity leave is up .
My fiance said he wants his sister to babysit the baby, because he wants our daughter to grow up close to the family and he trusts her, however seeing as she has 2 young kids and a small house I would prefer one of my friends do it.
Now his sister is upset because she said she had planned on watching her , but I dont think that is my fault because I didnt tell her she could. My main friend that might watch my baby has a bigger house and her child is 9 and hardly there , so I can expect her to pay more attention to my baby.
Now my fiance keeps saying "mean" things about my friend and being very immature because he isnt getting his way ...
This just makes me so mad that I can barely think straight !

Okay, I see now. So she is one of THOSE people who constantly run their mouths when their input isn't wanted and she makes you "prickly". I can see where I wouldn't want her watching my child because of that. But lets be honest, do you feel like that because there is a part of you that feels guilty and thinks she could possibly do a better job? Deal with your insecurities babe.

I don't understand you thinking your child is going to get this complete focus and attention from this woman. She has not had a baby at home in 9 years. She doesn't even live with her own child FT. Do you honestly picture her sitting with your baby and playing with her non stop, giving her loads and loads of attention? She just may miss the freedom she currently has, once she takes your baby, the freedom of - NO KIDS AROUND.
There are things about my SIL that bug me too. Hell she can be a total bitch sometimes. lol HOWEVER, I DO trust her with my kids. She is their aunt and LOVES them entirely.
