I have been babysitting this little boy for almost a year now.
Everything has gone pretty good... I met them through my aunt who is very good friends ( and works with ) the mom.
Before me the grnamda watched him - the mom didnt like that arrangment because she had to pay the grandma and she thinks she shouldnt have to pay a grnadma to watch their grandchild. ( she actually pays me $2 less than she payed the grandma) .... But when I first started watching him she told me if there are days when i cant watch him then her mom would .
In the last year I have had to "call off " 3 or 4 times... and those were for important DR appts and when I had a surgery... and I had let her know about all of those long before the time came, but she would still kind of have an attitude about me not being able to watch him those days ( which i understnad not being happy about it, but still. )
So Wednesday night she called and asked if I could watch him saturday and I said I could. Well last night at my daughters tball game, they told us they are having a makeup game saturday morning at 11.
I immediatly texted her and told her the problem and asked if it was possible for her mom to watch him during the game ( I could watch him before and after), because I really didnt want to miss my little girls game. I also said that if her mom couldnt, if it would be possible for me to just take him along too.
She replied with a " no, just forget it"
I asked my aunt this morning if the mom said anything and she said " she isnt to happy with you, and I think she is going to have you stop watching him"..
Now I know this would be the ONLY reason she would fire me over.... she has even bragged about how good I am with him and half the time he doesnt even want to leave my house... i also think that she knew my aunt would tell me those things and maybe said them so I would just stay home and watch him.
