My parents suggested DD and I move in with them so that they can help out with DD and so I didn't have to worry about anything financially so I can go back to school fulltime. I'm taking a full load at school and it kicks my butt!! I know people who don't have any children and wouldn't take as many classes as I'm taking. Anywho my dad doesn't watch dd that often but when he does he loves it and he doesn't really ask when I'll be finished because he knows I have a lot to do. Well my mom on the other hand makes it seem like watching dd is a burden. When she watches her she gives me a set time to be back no matter what and she tells me I need to leave the house by 8am (on the weekends) or else she won't watch her. If I'm busy doing homework or something and dd needs something, she'll tell dd to come ask me when she could have easily gotten it for her. If my mom is in the kitchen and dd ask her to get a cup out of the cabinet she'll tell dd to come find me so I can get it for her. If my mom just warmed something up in the microwave and dd wants her to warm something up for her, she'll tell her she can't do it and to come get me. Don't get me wrong, my mom will watch her for a few hrs sometimes, on the weekend. But it's literally like as soon as she stops babysitting she refuses to do anything.
