Mini - happy birthday to your sweet little Jaye
JFB - mmm doesn't quite seem fair does it particularly if you are not feeling well.
VENT Alert!! Well ffs I had the worst night EVER! Had about 3 hrs sleep. I don't think the mother of this child is really in a hurry to get her back either, I have rang her concerned about 4 times and she has just fobbed it off saying it's her way of trying to control the situation and she's out of sorts bcs she's excited and overtired. Well I don't believe a child starts to cough constantly for 4 hours thru the night & keep continuing today and drip snot everywhere & not interested in eating anything and when I put her to sleep today she spewed..mother thinks she's trying to get out of sleeping and it's all bcs it's the longest she's been away from home...whatever !. Her solution to everything is give her panadol and put her to bed and leave her there even if she doesn't want to go...um she screams the house down so much I swear the hole street can hear her and think I'm murdering her, not to mention when she screams she is scaring the hell out of Evie & then she starts crying, she's also been a bit of a brat to Evie, I know kids do these things but all the same I'm losing my patience a bit KWIM. I can't drive her back myself bcs no car seat and she lives an hour away. This is the mother and child that gave us the vomitting bug about a month ago, mother really doesn't give a $hit what germs they spread. I've told her if she continues to be unhappy and I have anymore trouble she best come and get her, she wants her mum & I don't think she is well. Why am I doing this I hear you say?? I'm in this situation bcs she asked me to do her a favour and have her daughter when she goes to hospy to have her next baby before xmas bcs she a single mum like me doing ivf & has no one to mind toddler at the time & this is a weekend of 'practice' . Well there's been a few weekends of 'practice' already and this kid has not always been like this, I think the mum is taking full advantage of the situation & starting to treat me like a daycare centre. I am struggling to wonder why she is bothering having another one tbh, she often palms off her daughter. I feel sorry for the kid, it's not really fair on her but at the same time she has been a nightmare this time and I will be glad when she goes home, I'm sorry to say that but she is, and I'm regretting getting into this situation. If it were my child staying somewhere else and she was this out of sorts I'd get off my a$$ and go get her bcs obviously she's not well or happy.
Sigh...vent over. Have to go know got a screamer to attend to that is about to wake Evie up.
