Sometimes no is the best answer.

My ex and his daughter are both going in to have operations the same day. The mom needs a baby sitter for my godson. Would you believe all year no one called to ask anything of me. last week she said If I wanted him I could get him. I knew something was up. Well, I said no because if I am not a though, or concern any other time find someone else to use. The sad part is I love him and he adores me. But I have to stand my ground or the walking mat will never leave my back. I feel better even though I would not mind him at all. But I have an aide and if something happened while her was here I would not like what would come of my agency staff. I was already warned I could not care for anyone. They both know that.

I don't blame you @sharon6345 I remember mom going through stuff like that, both she and I were always asked if we wanted to sit for the kids but when they were off with friends we weren't good enough to bother with. I for one did what you did but poor ma just kept letting them use her.

It was tough for me for that very reason. Now I am looking around me and I am basically alone. I have to say I asked B last night does he ever think about how alone I am at times. He will be coming more often.
