I knew I had to babysit my niece today, so I called off work last week. Itís easier for me to have days off because my boss is my grandma and Iím not as essential (but still pretty damn essential) as my cousin. Either way, my grandma is pretty lenient, but I enjoy working there (except for my annoying coworker). I like what I do.
HOWEVER, it is not okay for my sisterís boyfriend to go out late and then miss work because heís tired. He works for my dad. My brother (who also works thereÖfield manager or something) called and heís pissed. My sisterís boyfriend didnít even call to say he wouldnít be in.
I could be at work. I could be helping my grandmother. I could be making money. I could be productive. Hell, I couldíve slept in to kick off this headache. I was sick all day yesterday and couldn't keep anything down. Gotta love choosing grilled chicken at a restaurant and I got sick after. He could be watching my niece becauseÖwell, he IS her father. That and I have to miss the whole week due to my mom having shoulder surgery on Wednesday.
I love my niece. She makes me so incredibly happy. I love all the time we spend together. Sheís such a sweetheart and hilarious. At the moment, weíre watching all the Disney Resort Hotels (she doesnít want to watch anything else). Weíre going to paint later, and have a Disney film marathon before mama comes home from work. I just donít think itís fair that he decided to stay out late and skip work because heís tired. Sorry that you canít be the fun dad the whole time and with a child comes responsibility (another time for this story because itís long and depressing), and you need to accept your responsibility. I have enough responsibility and as much as I love her, sheís not my child.
Okay, so not only am I watching my niece, but at 1, my three nephews are coming over because my mom wants to see them before her surgery. This means Iím going to have to babysit a four year old, two five year olds, and a seven year old because my mom canít do it. She just wants to see them, not watch them.
I'm trying not to cry right now.
