She does work, but my mom gives her free use of the credit card and we have the boys all the time. I LOVE my nephews so much & I'm happy that they are with me instead of her at times, but she's going to be 28. She needs to get her act together soon, if not for herself, but for her kids.
I understand what that is like, my sister is 3 years younger then i am, same amount of children as myself but they are with their father except for her youngest boy who is being raised by our cousin. She has had a series of bfs in the past 5 years since she left her husband, and all have been chronic alcoholics so she is drinking alot as well. She get frustrated with her kids easily when she has just the four which in turn causes her to drink. She grossly abused our younger sister when they lived together by leaving her kids with our sister sometimes saying she had a meeting to go to and sometimes just leaving without a word
, and our younger sister had to give her money for rent, utilities, and would be left with nothing so she couldnt go and buy herself something nice or something she may have really needed. Afew times I had to give her some of my clothes because she didnt have any money to buy any.
I also on occasion took hamburger, pasta and veggies over and would cook for everyone because they didnt have much. I really dont understand why ... why... she had nearly lost her only daughter to the rota-virus when she was only 9months and during the time she was at the children' hospital my sister rarely stayed at her daughter's bedside, both her and her husband were out shopping and wandering around van. while nurses would cuddle my niece and make sure she had someone with her. Then when she had gotten better and was supposed to leave, they couldnt pay for her medication
meanwhile hours before her husband was showing off new dvds, a portable dvd player, and brand new clothing they had bought.
Sometimes I wonder if we are truly related
