This past spring my husband and i moved in with my mother in law... she recently got divorced ( not husbands dad) and so she had less money coming in... we just moved back to this town and was looking for a house to buy, so we figured we would help each other out.... we would move in and pay rent and half the utilities, but it was still cheap enough to where we could save some money for a new house ...
My husbands half brother is mentally disabled and somewhat hard to take care of ... i honestly do not mind taking care of him some times... but slowly mother in law has left him in my care everyday ... At first it started out as just the 1 or 2 days a week or when he was sick and could go to the sitter or to day camp... but now she just completely fired the sitter and just leaves him with me everyday... she never asked me to, we never talked about it... I would just wake up in the morning and she would be off to work and he would still be here...
I mean i am not trying to cause a problem or make abig deal out of it... but it is actually starting to cause me problems... I am pregnant and I just feel like these last couple of months are mine to have by myself, I am not aloud to take him anywhere and he doesnt like to go outside, so I cant even go onto the porch... and like I said i am fine with watching him a couple days a week , but not everyday ... my husband says to just talk to MIL about it ( he never sees her because of their work schedules) ... but she is so hard to talk to.... also I want to point out she is not so hard up for money that she couldnt pay the sitter... I mean i understand it is nicer to have extra money, but I think since we are paying half the mortage and half the utilites i should have to "work off" the fact that we are living here....
what do you think ?
