Ah...

So here it is.

Ive told DH cousin a few times that I cant keep her kids. She then runs to DH.

He will say yes. It never goes well.

The last time, I told DH to tell her to stop asking. Its a no. I dont want to be bothered.

Now, she is texting to just "see how we are." I know she is trying to weasel her way back in for holiday childcare. I used to keep kids on my days off but I don't feel like it anymore. Like damn is she delayed to think that I want to keep her kids.

I know Im all over the place. Im venting. I don't want to be bothered. DH gets upset when I say this.

His cousin is always crying that her kids are bored but she needs to get off her ass and find some low cost fun for them.

I thought it was done until she contacted me.

Let DH do it. Leave when the kids come.

NO. He gets all butt hurt.

He isnt the one who does most of the childcare.

So, what's wrong other than the obvious lack of communication in your marriage? Is his cousin an aspiring Duggar with a whole squad of toddlers? Does she have a SN kid who really can't be sat by just anyone, but she tries getting them sat by just anyone, anyway? Are they just feral brats who haven't heard their parents actually say the word "no" in their lives?

If I didn't want to babysit, I'd have dumped the kids on DH. He was the one who said "yes", after all. If I felt charitable, I'd take my own kids with me.
