    I have looked after my sisters kids like they were mine, they are grown up, older neice had a baby who is now 3 who I enjoy looking after taking him to the park, swimming etc, I never had kids and I regret it, I helped out with this child as his mum was a single person and needed a break now and then, now another family member has a baby and is talking behind my back I should look after hers too if I have looked after her sisters kid, I just don't want to look after another child I have done it my whole life, and am tired, 47 SNF single only bother with me when they want something, I feel guilty when I take three year old out, the one with the baby never wants to meet up even for s coffee I never saw her before she had a baby and she has husband. It feels like if all my sisters kids have children I have to babysit as I di did it for one, my life isn't for being a babysitter

    You don't owe her a thing. She is pretty entitled if she thinks you owe her free babysitting.

    Sometimes, we have to say no, so we can take care of ourselves. Take care of you.

    I don't think that is right of her to make you feel that way. It's her child and you do not owe her anything. It's your life you need to do what's right for you even if that might not be what she wants. I worked in a daycare for three years and babysitting for a lot of the families on the side but eventually it turned into way too much to handle because everybody was asking me constantly to babysit and I just ended up losing a lot of families in the end. Do what's good for you!! :)
