I just need to vent this out, because I have no idea on what else to do right now.
My oldest son recently married a woman who has 2 kids ( by 2 other men) , she is also very pregnant with my sons child. My son and the rest of my family have completely stepped up and accepted ( and are pretty much raising) her other children. I call them my grandkids, and they call me mamaw.
My daughter watches her kids while she works, AND while she doesnt work. She works 2 or 3 days a week but my daughter watches them for 5 days ( not paid unless my son gives her money) , after they leave my daughters they come here and stay or if my son has the night off ( he works 3rd shift) he will "keep them" .
So i am really ticked off, especially after her actions in this last week alone.
1. my son worked from 11pm to 7am , he got home and took her oldest to preschool, the youngest to my daughters, and then he went to the laundry mat to wash clothes for 4 hours ( she has refused to wash clothes for the last month, even though she has been off of work) , after that my son brought both kids here and made us all dinner because she wanted the house alone so she could "rest" ... of course that is exactly what she did all day... my son fell asleep on my couch for about an hour and then went back to work.
2. He has fallen asleep and has run off the road twice because of this schedule ... I have seen the text messages of him telling her he needs some sleep and if she " will please watch the kids" and she will reply with mean things , sometimes even going off and telling him he isnt the real dad of the kids and she will make sure he cant see them anymore ( which is why he wont leave her because he has became attached to the kids, he is afraid he wont have them anymore)
3. The thing that bothers me the most now is..... when the newest baby comes she is saying she isnt going back to work BUT she expects my son to still pay for a babysitter.
why in the world would a stay at home mom need a babysitter everyday ?????
