SAHM Babysitting during Visit
This is so far ahead....but I am already dreading having to watch my SD (8) during Christmas time!!
I am a SAHM and my bf works. Last year I had a 3mo while SD came for her visit that lasted when she got out from school all the way until drop off on Christmas morning. I had to "babysit" her for a couple days while my bf worked.
This year the schedule is to have her come Christmas morning and stay about a week. My bf works throughout the week, which means I'd be left with my 15mo, 4 week old, AND SD! I don't want to babysit her while he works. Is this okay for me to refuse because I already have 2 young babies to watch, even though I am a SAHM?! Is it my job to also watch her because he's the one who works?!
She's not a difficult child but she also will require more effort and energy on my part to babysit her. Another person to feed and clean up after. Can't be comfy lounging around my house, watching my shows, on my own and my kids schedule. Kind of just an annoyance. You'd think she'd help with my toddler by kind of playing with her but no she really isn't helpful (no I don't expect her to babysit, but maybe a "hey keep on eye on her while I go pee real quick" but she can't even be trusted to do that). Ugh already frustrated and feeling guilty I just DONT WANT TO.
Am I in the wrong?!???
