Grrr flustered

Monday, April 15, 2013

Ok I have to vent a little. Let me first start by asking a question ... If you ask someone to watch your kid or kids Friday evening till Sunday after noon when do you pick up said kid or kids? Bug's mom thinks it is Monday at 10 til noon. ahhh little late don't ya think? Ok here is what happens each time I keep him for a night or the weekend.... I will get him at this time. After that time passes and it is almost bedtime, I get a text ohh we will not make it in til really late and he is most likely in bed or ready for bed, and we are exhausted, can we get him in the AM. Ofcourse me being me , I always say yes ... then when she dd come get him it was ohh we will be moving soon again and I need you to keep him while we move ..( they just moved in Jan and I had him for 4 day ...and a couple evenings) The to tell me ohh we looked at a house to buy this AM before we came to get him. I think if people do something for you .. 1) be back when ya say you will be there. 2) Ya know ya have to pick him up , leave where you are to get there on time and not a day later. 3) get your kid before gas -- assing around town.
Ok sorry for my rant. Today is day 218.. keep sparking

    Sounds like they don't want damaged goods. Parenting is about accepting, dealing with, and loving what you were given whether that child was what you wanted or not.

    This is really f*cked up and it goes beyond them being jackasses to you. As an Aspie, it would have really f*cked with me if my parents did this. They are not only messing with you, but they are messing with their kid! This is total bs and they need to be called out on it!

    I do provide the only child care they use. I love the lil guy , and He is Autistic so it s really hard on him when they don't keep the time frame right , then he has meltdowns and such ... I would keep him full time if that is what they wanted .... She was to go to jail when he was 6 weeks old and had ask us to take Guardianship of him til she came home .. due to medical needs she ended up not going and was commuted. Needless to say we love the lil guy like he is our own and keep watching him so we don't lose contact with him because of tell mom the rules

    i have to agree with everyone else the parents need some parenting skills and people skills not to take advantage of you. you are kind to care for the child. he is the who also suffers if they tell him when they are coming back and then don't that is hard on him. they need some rules before leaving him again. you are kind to keep providing child care.

    Either they are taking advantage or they want to leave their kid with you permanently!

    Frustrated? Yup. Angry?? DEFINITELY yup. I am afraid I'd explain the "rules of engagement" to that pair and stick to it. I feel sorry for the child, because he's stuck in the middle of it!

    Frustrating. emoticon And you feel bad for the poor kid too. Kinda gives the impression that he's an afterthought. I'm glad you at least look after him. But still...
