  • Have you asked her why? Maybe the timing hasn't been right?

  • Does she get paid to babysit the other kids?? Or timing as mentioned by Dahis... my sister has had one sleep over with my daughter.. I never really gave it thought as to why she never offered.. just figured she other things going on.

  • Is it because of the way your children behave or that they are too much for her to take care of? I'm not trying to be mean but I know there are people in our family whose children I will not babysit and it's because of the behavior of those children. She might rather tell you she's busy than she doesn't want to watch your boys.
