I haven't ever made a post myself, I just normally comment on other people's posts. And as my first post unfortunately it isn't anything to do with teens, but I hope its allowed anyway.
I have 2 old half sister's, and they literally do not get along at all. My oldest sister is 11 years older than I am, and my other sister is 10 yrs older than me. There has always been tension and drama between them as long as I can remember. I was my oldest sister's favorite and still pretty much am. I didn't start getting along with my other sister until I was an adult. The reason for that is simple...I have raised her 3 kids. She had my first neice when she was 18, my second when she was 20 and my nephew when she was 22. I was 9, 11, and 13 during this time. When I was 14 I practically living with her to babysit the kids while she went to "school" and worked. I actually did her homework for her, she didn't do it. She worked 3rd so I was there all the time. Now mind you she was only out on her own for like 6 months, the rest of the time she lived with us. And I in all honesty do not remember a time when she didn't have a boyfriend. I'm talking back when I was 2 or 3 I remember her having them up until even now. It's ridiculous. It's like she can't function without a man. I've watched her and my oldest sister who's husband was a piece of crap who beat her for 20 years before she divorced him. I see no need to get married in all honesty. I am perfectly happy without a man in my life. But that is neither here nor there. I can make it on my own, my oldest sister can somewhat but my middle sister? No. She could i'm sure but she can't last at a job on the rare instances she has one. Anyhoo, sorry I ramble and digress alot. Anyhow, when I was 14 I wanted to go home and spend the weekend with my dad as she wasn't working and I hadn't seen him for weeks prior to this and i'm still to this day a totally daddy's girl. So she called me and asked if i'd babysit and I told her no, she wanted to go out with her bf to go to a rodeo, well sorry but no you have kids. So my parents got a call later from the friggin police because my idiotic sister went anyway and left them alone in the apartment. My nephew was 8 months old, my neices were 2 & 4. This is how idiotic she is. So we got stuck with them. Both my parents worked so I would come home after school and have to watch the kids, cook dinner, do laundry, give them baths & when they got older help with homework etc.
They are now 27, 25, and 23. And she never regained custody, never wanted custody back because that would derail her "fun times" pretty much. She didn't really want anything to do with them till they were in their late teens. THEN all of a sudden she was "i'm their mom" but only in front of people, she wanted to show off. So stupid.
So to this day my older sister hates her, and she blames her for pretty much my childhood being taken away. My middle sister wants nothing more than to have my older sister talk to her etc but she won't. So she posts crap on facebook all the time. I FINALLY had to tell them both to get the hell off of my facebook if they were fighting because I don't want to hear it, it has nothing to do with me and i'm tired of it. But my oldest sister will make a dig every so often about her being my favorite sister, which my younger neice does that too, but she tells everyone she's my favorite. But my sister saying it cheeses my other sister off and then makes her write a ridiculous post about how its not fair that she wants nothing to do with her and how she doesn't have much to do with my other neice or nephew, blah blah blah. I am trying SO HARD not to say anything to my sister because it'll only hurt her feelings and then i'll have to hear how its not fair all that other crap.
I got whined at a while back when I told her that contrary to what she believes my nephew doesn't have to let her know every little thing that happens with his 3 month old son and she was like yes they do. No they don't. She was like "i'm his mom" and I was like so what? You weren't in his life until he was 15 and that's only because you got back with his dad. So that made her even madder. But she thinks that she is this great mom when she wasn't. And they are both seriously getting on my nerves.
Sorry I had to vent. It was either that or I am going to end up having to post about her whining etc.
