I'm not a babysitter!?! Ugh... BM/SM

Do you take your kids on errands or appointments with you? I take my kids and step kids everywhere if DH is not available to help. Which is most of the time. Or had to reschedule. 

Mom has them for an extended visit and drops them off if she has anything to do. Yes she asks first, but if we don't she will leave them with someone else or alone if she can't find help. Being that she had to go 2 hrs away, I and DH wouldn't risk it. Besides he loves having the kids here so would love a little visit!


My point I guess, is why do I and DH make it my/our responsibility when we have the kids, but she relies on everyone else.  What's your point of view? Maybe I'm wrong.

I mean they are old enough to sit down and behave or stand with you in line wherever you are going. Not old enough to leave behind. But why not take them with you?

Who is to know why you and dh do what you do besides you two.  IF this isnt what you want then stop doing it!  As far as BM goes everyone parents different you can change it. 

No I do not take my kids or stepkids everywhere with me, actually id rather go alone if i can.  Ive been told im the NO parent and DH is the Yes parent.   But my skids and our youngest dd are with us fulltime and my 3 bios with my ex 50/50  EOW.

I take my two year old everywhere and tbh I wish sometimes I didn't have to. But he won't stay with anyone so he goes with me. We always make a fun time out of wherever we go

Ive left my 9 year old home alone with the younger kids to run to the store real quick.  Its no big deal they had a phone and the neighbor if anything.  and im only gone for an hour, if its when dh is at work, or when i have to go pick him up.

Say no and then call cps when she leaves the kids alone. That will teach her to stop being such a crappy mother.
