So I told you all how last year my dh and I decided I would stay home with the kids. So this year I worked part-time at ss's school. During the summer I have been babysitting 3 children. So I have 7 children each day in my care.
Well my stepmom asked me to babysit a week ago for my 3 yr old sister 2 days because my dad had minor surgery and had to stay overnight in the hospital. I said ok and did it.
Then I found out that she did not stay overnight at the hospital and went gambling!! She has a gambling problem and visits the casino almost weekly! Her and my dad always claim she has coupons.....but I think that the casino would not be sending coupons all the time for free hotel rooms and free money if she was not doing her fare share of spending in their casino. Her and my dad are in major debt and are currently months behind in their mortgage and some other bills. We loaned them money a while back and they recently asked for more and I said we did not have it.
Anyways so my stepmom wanted me to babysit tomorrow so she could take my dad to a follow up appt. from his surgery. He has to have a biopsy and will not be able to drive home. I told her no becuase I will have 8 children here tomorrow already (my 4, the 3 I babysit, and my niece who I babysit sometimes). My stepmom asked about a different day and I told her the same thing and she got snippy with me! I told her that honestly I just can not handle another child, especially a toddler during the day!
She does not work, she complains about how hard it is taking care of my 3 year old sister, and her house is always a mess. Yet she gave me an attitude for being honest and telling her that there is no way I could handle 9 kids for a day! I am beyond angry. Last time I babysat she went gambling for goodness sakes!
