December 14th, 2010


My life has gotten extensively more stressful these last few months. My sister and her two children moved in with us and I have been her full time daycare since July. Not only do I care for her kids when she is not here, she also lives here so they never really leave.

I love my sister but I wonder how much longer I can do this.

Any Advice?

Don't know if they are still living with you or not, but I had this problem last summer. My sister in law lived a few blocks away from my folks, and I was staying with my parents for the summer while my hubby did some military training. Long story short - I became her babysitter. Did they ever watch my kids for me? No. Did I have a husband to take care of me? No. At least, he wasn't accessible. Eventually I moved out and rented a little house near the base where my DH was training. Even though we didn't get to see him much, I didn't have to deal with taking care of someone else's life while I felt like I could barely hold mine together.

Anyway, I guess moving out of your own house is out of the question :) Is this an indefinite thing? I'm sure you'll figure something out (if you haven't already). Good luck!
