I love my sister and i love my nephews but them staying with us is not working out. 3 years ago, she came to visit without her boys and it was an amazing trip, but this time not so much. We live in a top apartment so there are people that live below us. Both boys are autistic which i get, but she isn't consistent with them, gives them non stop soda, and they don't listen to her at all. The youngest is nine and weighs roughly 90 lbs. he stomps when he gets mad, i mean stomps hard. We are getting worried about getting a lease infraction. he also smacks his head on things. we can't afford to patch a hole if he does it with his head. the house is trashed because her kids don't pick up after themselves at all (they are 9 and 11). they run off, throw temper tantrums when they are too hot (which is all the time since we are in the 100s). they have only been here for 6 days and i'm already counting down the days when they leave which is 9 more days. we are suppose to do snooze at the zoo but it looks like that might not happen because her boys are homesick at night and have meltdowns when they are tired.
So things seemed to get a little better. My sister figured out that the boys were probably grumpy from lack of sleep because they are used to having melatonin at night. Well thats a start. Monday night they went to bed good, same with Tuesday night. I was actually starting to feel a little bad about being grumpy and pissy. But then this morning happened. Her boys were trying to use the microwave and stove this morning when i was leaving for work and she was still asleep so i woke her up before i left. I will get charged by property management if those break because of lack of supervision from kids in the home, yes even the mrcrowave came with the place. My husband slept in because last night she didn't give the kids melatonin and we couldn't get to sleep until almost midnight because of the meltdowns. she's pissed off because my husband slept in. i have had to work this week. i don't get vacation pay so yes i need to work. i can't take almost 3 weeks off of work. we wouldn't be able to even pay rent. her kids don't pick up after themselves at all. my husband has been having to skip some outings to be able to clean the house whitout them there just to keep up with the house somewhat. Yesterday he said they were acting up and throwing fits in the middle of the restaurant and their mom offered to take them to toys r us to get a toy if they would just stop. my husbands jaw hit the floor. Oh and just now he texted me and said the kids were having a melt down because they passed chuckie cheese in the car. i don't know how much more i can handle. dd has her birthday party on sunday, i hope everything goes well.
