My sister wants me to take care of her son and feed him this crap every night?
I offered to babysit her son until she can work something better out. At first she was appreciative, they suddenly started demanding I change up my routine for him. For example, my kids and I walk home from school every day. It takes 20 minutes, and they're active and playing the whole time. So, when we get home, the rule is homework right away, then you have all night to have fun. She wants me to let him play video games for half an hour because he needs to "blow off steam"? No. My son is the same age as him and is going to be beyond jealous if that goes down. She also requested that I drive I pick him up if it's colder than 50 out. I don't think so.
Today, she told me she'd be dropping off all "his food". I asked what she meant and said I'd prefer she just give me 15-20 dollars for the extra food, and she said it was the stuff "he'll eat". I called her and asked what she meant. What he'll eat? Chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, frozen pizza, canned pasta, frozen burgers and hotdogs, pop tarts, and he'll "probably" eat it if I make cheese quesadillas.
I want to rescind my offer now. I'm not making an entire other meal every night. I'm not going to sit there and encourage my kids to try new things and make healthy choices while I'm serving their cousin junk food. I told my sister I'd call her back to talk, and I just want to say this isn't going to work out.
