If you have a partner and you both have kids, do you expect your partner to babysit your child as though it's their own? My other half offered to work saturday morning, in which case he asked his mum to have his daughter for the night before (he leaves at 4am) and until he came back from work. He now texts me asking can his mum drop her off to me at 2 (bearing in mind i have my daughter 12/14 days and i wanted to spend some time with just my daughter this saturday morning/afternoon) and that he won't be long after. My reply was 'as long as you aren't long' (this is purely because he used to ask me to look after her for an hour and then be 3 - something i called him out for very soon into our relationship). The reason i dont particularly want to have his daughter is because her behaviour and attitude is disgusting and i won't tolerate it. He'll offer to have my daughter fairly often however i know that this is because she's a distraction for his daughter as she is extremely well behaved and will do as she's told without being told twice. If you ask his daughter to do anything, you get a NO and a tantrum. We've just had his daughter solidly for a week as her mum is ill, and he had to work from home so why had he planned to go into work when he can finally spend some time with her? We normally only have her every other weekend and a few nights during the week for tea. If she was well behaved i would have no problem having her at all, but i spend most of the time arguing with her and she spends majority of the time on the naughty step as my tolerance for bad behaviour is zero just as it was with my daughter and it paid off. Does it make me a bad partner for not particularly wanting to babysit his daughter when we should be a team? But then why plan to go into work when it's your weekend for your daughter?
