I had a crazy morning, and Im sure more to come. I was woken up this morning by my phone ringing repeatedly. Finally I get up and answer it, and what do ya know, its my brother. He needs a babysitter. Nothing new, except the reasoning behind it. I guess sometime last night his girlfriend came home drunk, my brother was upset and started telling her that she needs to start being a mother and taking care of her children. She got upset and broke something over his head. He doesn't remember what. He did end up in the hospital and having to get 10 stitches in his head. She could have killed him. It was in the perfect spot, at the perfect angle. They are both so lucky. All this happened in front of my 3 yr old nephew. I feel for this little boy and his baby sister. I wish there was more I could do, but right now there isn't. The whole time my nephew was here, he kept saying ... mommy hurt daddy, daddy was in the hospital, mommy broke my door, mommy is a pain in my ass? I don't know where he got the last one from. I asked my brother about her breaking his door, but he didn't answer me. This little boy had to sit up all night in the ER with my brother because his mom was tooken to jail. This morning at my house, was the first time he had slept all night long. Im scared for my brother. Him and his girlfriend have a very unhealthy relationship. She has sent my brother to jail twice, and now she is there ... for the same thing, beating eachother.Atleast this time tho, my brother was smart enough not to fight back. She really is crazy. One time she got upset that he wasn't home on time, so she took all this clothes and threw them into the front lawn, along with cut up pictures of my dad. He died when we were younger and she knew those meant alot to him. Then she went back inside and cut up his furniture. Thats just one of the stories there are plenty. I told him that he needs to leave, and stay gone. I hope he does. Im afraid that one day, one of them is going to end up dead. My mom offered to let him come live with her until he gets his shit together, so I hope he takes her up on that. I also hope he takes his son with him. She is not a good mother, she does nothing for her kids from what I can see. Around Christmas time, Michael wore the same shirt four days in a row, yet she had on a new nice outfit everyday. Every time I see him, he is wearing the same thing. A white and blue stripped shirt. They aren't poor, she can afford to buy this child some clothes. She uses my brother as a babysitter. He works midnights, then comes home and watches the kids till whenever she feels like coming home. I don't know when he sleeps, oh wait yes I do.... it's when I have the kids. They get pushed off onto me and his girlfriends father. I don't mind watching them, but I hate the way they get sent here. No clothes, barely enough diapers, dirty, tired, hungry ................ I know my brother is trying to do the best he can with what he has, but im really disappointed in their mom. What kinda mom does something that will send her to jail, away from her kids, having no idea where they are, who is taking care of them ..... I couldn't even imange. I hate leaving them to run to the store, but she has no problem leaving for days without evening being able to talk to them? I just wonder what she does to those kids when she is mad, ya know? She almost killed my brother last night ....... and he had no problem attacking him infront of her 3 yr old son? ugh, my family is a mess right now. If you read this far, god bless you!

Feb. 2, 2008 at 9:40 PM Is Children's Services involved yet?  If they aren't, it looks like they should be.

Child services is not all it is cracked up to be, if someone were to call and say the mother is in jail, and then the father has a check done and they see he has assault in his past they will be in foster care and I dont know if you know but many children have died in state custody,

Anyway, I am sorry you have to watch all this, it must be really hard. My sister used to do a ton of drugs in front of her kids and never paid attention to then or anything and they were the same way if I didnt go there every day who knows if she would have evn fed them. It is sad but some mothers just do not care, but lucky for you your brothers kids have a safe place to go. You are an angel for being there for those kids. Make sure you always are cause they need you, and they will remember how much you did for them when they are older and they will thank you.
