Very Nervous....Update in Purple.

So I was telling my mom how pissed off I was about my sister refusing to watch DS for me for a few hours tomorrow. This conversation happened two days ago. Well the conversation really bit me in the butt. She offered to watch him. I immediately declined and then she got VERY offended. I started to tell her that DS is only 3 and needs a lot of attention. She works night shift so she will not be able to get any sleep. She said it would be fine.

This woman once told me I should spank my son because we are having issues with his potty training. This woman often says things that are a little hurtful to my nieces without realizing it was offensive. She yells when she is upset and over reacts to little things.

I have never let her watch him before.
I am letting her watch him for about 4 hours tomorrow. I know she loves him very much and my nieces were older when she said hurtful things, but I dont want him to get his feelings hurt. He is still kinda joined at my hip and will be really upset when I leave. I dont know if I am doing the right thing..

What do you think?

**Update**

Well it all worked out and DS had a great time ! My mom said that he didnt even cry once ! I am soo happy ! :)

My sister even brought my nieces over there to play with him for the last hour that he was there and he LOVES his nieces. :)

I think I might let her watch him again sometime. :)

Ok this is just my opinion but if you dont like your mom watching your kid dont complain to her about someone else not watching him. That being said it was nice of her to offer to watching him and her knowing you are nervous Im sure she will be extra attentive especially since this is her first time watching him.

My life is the opposite i wont let my sister watch my kids unless its during the day and an absolute emergency. I dont like that she smokes in the house and while i believe in spanking for a good reason she thinks i dont smack my kids enough. Ds2 is severely ADHD so i could just imagine how that would go.
