My husband says I am ...
we have a "family friend" ( her mom grew up with my mom and aunts , her and I grew up together even though we havent remained close).... She has a little boy who is almost 2 , and she always complains about how he wont listen, and that is just always bad, i think it has to do with her not spending time with him , and not watching him ( like today at the easter gettogether she wasnt watching him when he had a mouth full of jelly beans- to where he couldnt even close his mouth, and when he was "fishing" at my grandmas 5 ft deep coy pond) .....
Anyways, I babysit him, when she goes to work ( and most of her days off ) , this week i was only suppose to have him tuesday and wednesday but now she wants me to watch him tomorrow so she can do "housework" ( which from experiance means take a long nap) , I told her I would watch him from 9:30 to 1 and asked her if that was enough time for her ( seeing if she would catch on to my annoyance) and she said "we will see, I will text you if not" ... i take that as a "screw what you want to do I need my afternoon nap!"
Ok so my husband thinks she is taking advantage of my "niceness" because of the things she says like that, and that when i do watch him she is usually HOURS late..... I think it is more her attitude and that she just thinks she is entitled.... and not forgetting the fact that I get paid pretty good, and that I love the little boy and he actually acts very well for me ( not to mention i also have a 2 year old son and they play well together) ...
