Reading my post from yesterday I realize I shouldn't type up posts when I'm feeling emotional. I ended up not having to take the kids yesterday so BF and I made some Nachos and watched the movie 21. Then I called up my mom and told I would come over and visit to give her a hand with my niece.
When I got there my mom said she had called the hospital and talked to my sister and her nurses who in turn talked to her boyfriend about the provided daycare services. My sister told her boyfriend that he was taking advantage and burning out the family as well as himself. So she told him to set it up right away as we know she will be in the hospital for at least a month and so expecting us to take their kids every day is ridiculous.
He was really upset about it. I know they had fights about other stuff as well. He's been spending like mad since she's been in the hospital and it sounds like its her EFund. Since she is in the hospital there is nobody making money. She told him to stop spending her money, get a job and get some daycare. My mom talked to her afterward and told her that when her boyfriend gets a job any daycare time that wont cover him working and visiting her that we will help out but that we appreciate the break.
I snuggled with my niece last night and she opened up to me a lot. She's only 6 going on seven but the things that came out of her mouth is scary. She has obviously heard a lot of things from either being up at the hospital or from adults talking when little ears are around. I tried to calm her fears by letting her talk when she wanted to and giving her little talks in between. She's really missing her mom. It broke my heart and brought me back to reality. I love my sister and her children.
So I'm going to continue to do what I can and hope that together we can all work this out so its not draining on everyone. I think once the daycare is set up and her boyfriend can get a job things will be better. I feel bad about my rant but it was an honest moment in a time of weakness. So now I'm off to try and get some laundry and things done around here that have been low on my priority list since all this has happened.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
