I am getting tired of my mother. My sister's bf left her for another girl in feb. she is now on her own with two kids. One is about to be 7, the other 4. My mother is the type where everyone is a burden on her. She'll barely see my daughter. The only time she really pushes to see Alyssa is when we find out anything that has to do with her medically. And I feel like she does it so she can go to her work friends and get sympathy since my daughter will likely be completely dependent on me for everything. Anyways mom is suppose to watch my sisters kids while she works. She hates watching them. A lot of times she'll cancel the day of, then my sister will have to ask us, and of course I'd never tell her no. I love my niece and nephew. 4 years ago when Alyssa and her son were only a few months old I was watching all 3 kids 4 days a week both my dh and I working. So straight after work babysitting all night. I'd have to have a friend come over to watch Alyssa because my nephew would literally not let me pick up my own child he would scream and cry till he puked. Thankfully he's not like that anymore but I felt like I missed out a lot on being a first time mother to my own child. I have never asked my sister for money, but it is like having two jobs. And since Alyssa can't chew, we only get enough things to make dinner for two and we never know when we'll have to watch them so normally we buy pizzas or go get fast food each time. And I feel bad for my DH because he just worked a 16hr shift till 11pm last night and this is his only day off and I have to work so he'll have to be the one watching all of them for the first few hrs we have them. My sister texted saying she's looking for a different job since this keeps happening. I told her, you need to straight up ask mom if she doesn't want to watch them so you can stop depending on her to be the main babysitter. She just said I dunno. I'm like why? I don't get that. It's her responsibility to confront mom. If mom doesn't want to watch them then that's whatever but they need to figure that out. I get mom works and has to come home and watch them afterwards but I have a disabled daughter and finding out a few hrs before hand that we need to watch them is getting annoying. I'd like to know a little sooner than the day of. This happens at least once a week most times. Sigh, I just needed to vent.
