We had a wedding to go to today my friend who said she could watch the kids ended up having something she had to go to and we couldn't find anyone else to watch them. So we decided our 13 year old daugher would watch the kids for a few hours then my friend would grab them all on her way back from her thing. I talked to my 13 year old about keeping an eye on the little kids (my kids are 13, 11, 7, 5, and 4) and not fighting with the 11 year old. When we piled the kids up From my friends my 11 year old tells me the 13 year old didn't do anything and actually went to her room for most of the time. Then my 13 year old thinking she's cute I guess says "I was tired I took a nap" WTF!? I really thought we could trust her more I think from now on she doesn't get I choose to stay home when she doesn't want to
Go with us since I obviously can't trust her. I don't know how she honestly thought I would be ok with that! Hubby was going to give her money for helping out but now I think the 11 year old will get it. She did keep the kids busy but at 11 really doesn't make the best decisions like she decided painting was a good idea while we where gone and now my table needs to be scrubbed I really hope they used the washable paint!
