Quoting blessed×2:" I would much lather have an inlaw watch my child then..put them in a daycare or have a stranger watch ... [snip!] ... a better life!! I see nothing wrong with what your doing dont listen to this naysayer and give yourself a pat on the.back! "
exactly. that's what I told her. all of the mom's bashing me told me to skip going to school for those 2 weeks, or pay his cousin $200 for the 2 weeks, or hire a baby sitter.
We don't even have the money to pay his cousin, and there is no way in hell i would hire a sitter I don't know to be in my home, and around my child. I have no friends that can watch him, since most of them are in school or I don't trust with my child. My own mother works and can't afford to take 2 weeks off while MIL is away.
She kinda just threw it on us too. Wednesday it was "oh, I'm going for the weekend so I can still watch Logan while you're in class." and I was grateful that she planned it around me, but I still didn't see why she was going to FL if she has no money. Then it turned into a week, I still let it go. Then Friday it turned into 2 weeks. And she asked if I could check with my mom to see if the 2 weeks would work, I told her okay, let me call her tomorrow morning and tell you're friend not to buy any plane tickets until I hear from my mom. Well, when we told her this morning my mom can't afford 2 weeks off, she FLIPPED out, told us he already bought the tickets, after I asked her not to and just wait one day to see if we can figure this all out, and said that we would have to pay her friend back or her back the money for the tickets.
I was like, uh - I'm not paying anyone anything since I asked you to wait one day until you buy any tickets or set anything in stone. She was totally cool with trying to work it out for me and with school and kept asking if it was okay that she went, I was "whatever" about her going but I just got livid when the plans were set in stone, she didn't tell us, and then I found out she's paying her friend back the $$ for the tickets when she gets her disability check. But yet me and SO are paying YOUR bills?
