If you want to go to dinner or the club or whatever pay for a babysitter. SMDH
I'm going to have to. his mom and sister are perfectly capable of doing things for themselves but they have serious power trip issues. I know they will expect my husband to do everything for them (fix cars, houses, move things...) I will not sit at home alone because he is helping them. They are grown and capable women and they got their own selves into the messes they are in. I was the one constantly saying that there was something off about her husband and she should think before marrying him. I was the one who told his sister that she shouldn't have a baby with her husband but they didn't listen. Not to mention, if I ever got pregnant and needed them to babysit they would laugh in my face. They both act like their time is too precious but everyone else should take care of them. She actually had the nerve to say at the baby shower that since sister is having the first grandbaby it is getting all new and any kid born after that is getting used. Also that she was going to spoil this one the most because it's the first.
What happened with that and her kids? my husband is her oldest and she could care less what happens with him. She is such a butt. I don't really care because if or when I have kids I wouldn't leave them with neurotic alchoholics anyways. Not to mention I determine what my child gets not her. My kids won't be treated as second best by anyone. She did actually have the nerve to say she was saving all of this baby's stuff to pass on to me and my husband if we have a boy. Like I want this baby's hand me downs so they can hold that over my head for the rest of my life. Also if I have a kid I want it to have new things too not used.
