I knew I had to babysit my niece today, so I called off work last week. It’s easier for me to have days off because my boss is my grandma and I’m 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 sister’s boyfriend to go out late and then miss work because he’s tired. He works for my dad. My brother (who also works there…field manager or something) called and he’s pissed. My sister’s boyfriend didn’t even call to say he wouldn’t be in.

I could be at work. I could be helping my grandmother. I could be making money. I could be productive. Hell, I could’ve 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 because…well, 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. She’s such a sweetheart and hilarious. At the moment, we’re watching all the Disney Resort Hotels (she doesn’t want to watch anything else). We’re going to paint later, and have a Disney film marathon before mama comes home from work. I just don’t think it’s fair that he decided to stay out late and skip work because he’s tired. Sorry that you can’t be the fun dad the whole time and with a child comes responsibility (another time for this story because it’s long and depressing), and you need to accept your responsibility. I have enough responsibility and as much as I love her, she’s 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 I’m going to have to babysit a four year old, two five year olds, and a seven year old because my mom can’t do it. She just wants to see them, not watch them.

I'm trying not to cry right now.

    I've been there with my sister and her fiance. I kept their kids overnight so they could go to work on a Saturday. It wasn't until my sister got off work and told me her fiance spent the day cleaning the house that I found out. I was beyond mad! I have three boys and I took on her three boys. I had a LOT of stuff I could have done and he didn't even have the nerve to tell me he was taking the day off! I felt used!

    Enjoy your time with them. They grow up so fast! I'm sorry her dad put you in this situation. Some guys are so immature. emoticon
