I sent my friend a text message yesterday saying that after this week I won’t watch her kids anymore.
However, I don’t think she took me very seriously seeing as how she reminded me tonight that starting next week she’ll no longer have Tuesdays off of work. *facepalm*
Her little brats were worse than ever, even after her threatening them before she left for work this morning. What kind of children destroy an entire string of Christmas lights by ripping off the bulbs or smashing them to bits!? Needless to say, we can no longer go in our own backyard barefoot anymore! I fucking hate them. Not to mention, that shit costs money! I don’t even feed the little fuckers anymore because they ate all of the food their mom brought over, and I refuse to feed them my food or else we’ll have a completely empty fridge like last week. Depressing.
Nothing to make you completely hate children that aren’t yours than by watching other peoples’ little brats.
If she shows up at my door next Monday, I’m not going to answer the fucking door….Yeah right.
I hate being such a pussy ass doormat.
These kids are driving me up a wall!
I’ve said it before, nothing makes me realise how wonderful my son is until I have to take care or interact with other peoples’ children. My son is a saint! HAHAHA.
But in all seriousness.
I’m so beyond sick of my friend’s kids it’s impossible to even fathom how much restraint I have put upon myself in order to not throw things against the wall or hurt something. That might sound harsh to some people… especially the “all children are god’s gifts” sort of people… However, I’m not one of those people.. I’m also not one of the “all babies are cute” people, come on, seriously, some babies just looks like aliens, oompa loompas, goblins, and various kinds of ugly animals. That’s besides the point right now though. These little girls… mainly the older one – STRAIGHT OUT OF HELL. I basically hide in various parts of my house so I don’t have to deal with them. On Friday and Saturday I got 3 months’ worth of laundry (mainly blankets and towels) done because I was hiding in the laundry room!!! Well, needless to say, my husband is ecstatic! (haha) 😉
I won’t be watching them much longer, especially not for the amount that I imagine my friend will be paying me, which supposedly she doesn’t get paid until the 5th of December.
Seriously? Do people actually go that long in between checks?
I’ve never heard of it. I have a slight inkling that I won’t really be getting anything out of this babysitting gig and that it’s all for naught.
The thing I DO like about babysitting, is that it’s made homeschooling a lot more fun, during the morning, from about 10-1 I do school with my son and the middle girl, A. They’re both 4 (I think S is about 6 months older), so I just make doubles of all the worksheets we work on for the day and we try to get one project done per day. The kids kind of compete, so I think it makes school more fun for both of them since little kids are sociopaths and like to show off how awesome they are.
But the older one? Yeah, I’m going to have to get up the guts sometime to tell her mom, “I can watch the younger two, no problem,” but she’s going to have to figure out something for the BRAT. I’m so FREAKING TIRED OF HER BS!
As you know I’m babysitting my friend’s girls now, and I’ve discovered that babies are like a minefield! If one goes off there’s a chain reaction and every one blows up! Other than that, today went off without a hitch. A wasn’t crazy about her mom going to work, but she picked a movie to watch and her and S watched that for about 20 minutes before they decided to go play outside. Then they colored, and S was starting to drive me nuts so I decided he needed to do schoolwork.
Well, it wouldn’t be fair if only he had something to do, so I made copies of his worksheets and gave her some work to do as well. She’s about 6 months younger than S and a middle child, so she doesn’t really get as much attention as her evil older sister, or the new baby. This also means she doesn’t know as much so I’m actually doing a lot more teaching than just reviewing like I do a lot of the time with S. I think she really likes coming over because she gets a lot of one on one attention with me. (She’s such a sweetheart honestly!) We counted, named and colored shapes, learned to write “a” and “1”, and did a drawing maze. Later on we made leaf leis, I think I got the idea for it from here and decided to use paper leaves instead of apples. Anyways, the kids had a blast and A loved having something to show her mommy when she it was time to go home. I’ll try to update with pictures of S’ autumn leaf lei tomorrow if I remember.
Tomorrow I have the two younger girls again, then on Friday I have the younger two until 2p then the older (evil) one when she gets off of school, around 2 – until 7p. It’s going to be a LONG day, almost 12 hours!! Especially with the 5 year old, I honestly can’t stand that girl, she’s so bossy, condescending, smart-a$$ little… she’s a kindergarten bitch to be truthful about it. Luckily, I think hubby has Saturday off this week (he get’s one day off, every other week), so hopefully we’ll still be able to go shopping or something after the girls leave.
I think I updated about how my friend wants me to babysit for her while she’s at work.
Honestly, I thought there would be more talking about it before I had to do it, but yesterday was the first day. Surprisingly it went a lot better than I expected. If it weren’t for the fact that the oldest one doesn’t go to school on Mondays, it would have been totally good. The oldest sister is just a straight up brat, no other way to put it.
Ok so it was better than normal when I have watched them before, or when S has gone over to play with them when they used to be our neighbors. I ended up printing like 100 coloring pages out for them to color, and the rest of the time they played out in the yard digging in the garden, then after supper I got them to sit quietly and watch Christmas cartoons for the last hour and a half, get them calmed down and about half passed out before their mom got back, haha.
I don’t think I would ever want 5 kids, but it’s kind of good to know that I can handle that many at once!
Babies are like a time bomb though. One cries you pick it up and feed it, then the other one starts in…. Twins I don’t think I could do.
