My SIL lives just across the road from me and has 2 boys 10 and 3. She has applied for a job in a local school and asked me if I would look after her youngest boy after nursery every day. I said I would have him 1 day a week until the summer holidays and then I wouldn't be able to have him at all. My youngest starts school in august and I am looking forward to not being tied to picking up from nursery at 11.30 am. I also only said 1 day a week just now as as much as i love him he is very hard work and does not sit still for 1 minute and is also very rough with toys. It is very hard work having him over and the house is in uproar by the time he leaves. So now SIL is not very happy with me and is offended that I won't look after him even though she said she would pay me. Money is not the issue I just don't want to. So anyway my DD was having a friend over to play yesterday and SIL said " so you'll look after other peoples kids, just not mine". When SIL oldest son was younger I did look after him but I only had 1 child then I now have 3 and I cherish my days when they are at school and nursery. So do you think I'm being too hard or is she just expecting too much?
