Dd called me this afternoon wanting me to watch her ds an extra 4 hours while she picked up half an extra shift at work because her relief called in at the last minute. I told her no I would not watch him because I want to go play cards like I do sometimes on Monday nights and now she's upset with me because she lost out on money and got in trouble with her boss for having to leave. I understand she's a young mom, but I refuse to make sacrifices for her now that she has a kid of her own and it's time for her to make other arrangements now because when her second baby gets here I will not babysit two kids anyway.

Set your boundaries, tell her what they are and stick with them. She should know what to expect.

I understand you not wanting to be taken advantage of but sometimes we have to do things we don't want to for the benefit of others.

so there is a limited amount of time you will make sacrafices for your children?

She's not asking you to fly to the moon, just watch her kid for 4 more hours.

Maybe but I only agreed to babysit during her scheduled work days. I didn't agree to overtime and I deserve a life too.

Wow. I would never do that to my Mom when/if she was able to watch my kid/kids. How inconsiderate of her. Have fun! You raised your kids, her turn to raise hers!
