Can't have your cake and eat it..

I'm just a little annoyed with the current situation.

I do not mind helping with my SS, he spends a little over half his time with his father and I. I am a SAHM, but I do some work from home.

I am home/available to SS for before/after school as DH gets here about 30-45 after SS would get off the bus.

His mom does not live in our district, she lives 30 away. She emailed my husband that SS will need to ride the bus home on her days and she'll pick him up when she can.

Not that I really have plans it would interfere with, but when my husband asked for a set time for those days she said I will pick him up when I can/want and that we can't dictate a time for her to pick him up.

See how I feel is she's asking for our help, we didn't dictate a time but asked for a set time (and if by chance she's early for a text.) Is what we're asking unreasonable? Should I just say no?

No they do not offer after school care at his school.

I never understood this statement. How else would you eat a cake if you didn't have it?

But I know there is a local daycare that picks up kids for after school care.

Lmao it was just an eyecatcher.

She can't have it one way but want also expect the other.

As in she can't ask for help then get mad cause we ask for a set time for her to pick him up.

Her time, her problem. If she can't even try to be more accomodating or easier to deal with, then I would say no. You're doing her a favor not the other way around.

Ok then if you don't want to do it bring up the after care option to your husband and have him talk to mom about it.
