My neighbor has Williams syndrome and comes over ALL The time wanting to play with my girls. He is a 12 year old boy, but looks like he is 8.
I don't mind when they play outside or at my house with my supervision. However, lately I feel like a babysitter and I really don't want him at my house anymore.
Yesterday, he came over around our dinner time and I told him we were going to eat and they could play tomorrow.
Well, today it is 35 degrees outside and snowing. I also have a TON of things to do because DH was home this past week, I got nothing done and we weren't home that often. I literally have enough laundry to do for about 7 more loads and I have already done about 6. (among a list of other things to do to catch up). He comes over and I look outside and told her that she isn't going outside because it is cold and wet. I also told her that he wasn't comingin because I have a lot to do today.
My dd came up about 4 times asking if he could come in and I kept giving her the same answer. Well, I go downstairs and my other daughter and our neighbor kid - AFTER I TOL THEM HE WASN'T coming in today. were ON MY BED jumping on it and playing with the cats - literally about 1 minute after my oldest came upstairs and ignored the neighbor kid.
i WAS STRESSED BEYOND REALITY. I needed to get stuff done and this kid is IN MY HOUSE!!!
I told him he had to go, I could not have guests in the house today and it is too yucky out for my kids to go oustside. I told him if it cleared up they may be able to play this afternoon.
He asks me if I was mad, I said no but I am stressed because I said no 10 minutes ago and I am have a lot to do.
He leaves crying. WHY CAN'T ANYONE LISTEN TO ME NO MEANS NO.
I called my sister and she said I did nothing wrong, but I feel terrible.
Did I do something wrong?
