My sister is a single mom working two fast food jobs to support her two kids. She makes too little to pay for much, but too much to qualify for subsidized daycare or anything else. Because of this, my mom watches her kids while she works, which she openly complains about because she's 70 and watching a 6 and 3 year old 10+ hours a day, almost every day.

My sister just told her she's pregnant. My mom told her not to bother bringing the baby or any of the kids back for "free babysitting because you're too irresponsible to do anything right". She have my sister until next Friday to find care.

I live across the country with my husband or I would help in a heartbeat. She couldn't stop crying when she called me last night. She was hurt my mom reacted to her pregnancy like that, and she's scared to death about what to do with her babies. I tried to call my mom but she snapped "stay out of it" at me. :(

I don't fault your mom at all, your sister is irresponsible to get pregnant if she already has 2 children she can't provide for

To be honest I don't blame mom. She already has two she can't afford daycare for and she gets knocked up AGAIN??? WTF. I'd be done with her too.

I don't blame your mom one bit! Your sister already has two kids she cannot properly care for and she's having another one.

i agree with your mother 100%, you sister is a single mom of 2, and she is pregnant again?  your mother is 70 watching a 6 year old (part time during school hours) a 3 year old full time and soon to be newborn... your sister needs to learn to keep her legs shut (and please dont say failed birthcontrol) stop whoring around and you wont get pregnant
