For the past year, I have baby sat a little girl. She is now almost 19 months old. I also work for her mom at night as a janitor, while my husband watches her. To explain that, this little girl is my stepdaughter's younger sister. Her mom is my husband's ex. He doesn't charge for watching the girls at night (duh, why would he?) For a while, she has been calling me mommy, and I have been correcting her, "I am Donna, sweetie". We figure she calls me mommie because I have four children of my own and she hears them calling me mommie all the time. Anyway, the girls being here at night has been going on for a while, and their mom finally decided enough was enough and hired on someone else to do the work so that she could be home with the girls. Unfortunately, tonight, that person had to call out, so dh's exam worked with me. I got back to my house before she did and the little girl was having a fit, so I picked her up. A few minutes later, her mom gets here and I hand her over. After a couple of minutes, she fights for her mom to put her down, and what does she do? Comes up to me crying and asks to be picked up. I backed right the heck up and felt absolutely horrified. He mom was so upset, and I don't blame her one bit. I would have been heart broken, and my heart sure does hurt for her.
