It’s time for What I Meant to Say with Angel and Brittany over at Not Your Average Teen….go ahead…click the button below and link up! Or just go there and read some awesome posts! You won’t be sorry!
If you’ve been reading my blog you might be under the impression that my babysitter is walking a thin line. If you ARE under that impression, you are absolutely right.
You see, when my sitter told me last week that my 3 year old fell and scraped her knee and “acted like a drama queen” wanting to be carried in the house and the sitter refused…..telling my precious 3 year old drama queen with the bloody knee, “you know how to walk”…..
….I said, “wow, that’s a little mean….”
What I Meant to Say Was THIS:
“You lousy rat-ass SOB….that’s fucking awful to not carry my baby in the house when she is crying and has a bloody knee! Who in their right mind WOULDN’T carry an injured child?? And for you to agree that yes, you are a “mean mean babysitter” and laugh about it…..yeah, that was pretty much the straw that
I’m going to poke you in the eye with broke the camel’s back.”
When the sitter comes in and plucks the binkie out of my 3 year old’s mouth and doesn’t bat an eye even though my daughter is about to wail…..I just look at the situation, dumbfounded. Yes, my daughter should NOT need her binkie….she should be a big girl…..but isn’t there a better way to go about this??
What I Meant to Say instead of looking like I just got MY binkie plucked is this:
“Hey dumb ass….I’m sure you think you are an awesome sitter because you can
bully get my children to do what you say, but ya know what? Being a bully-bitch to toddlers does not make you the better caregiver. It’s ME they want to snuggle up with, and it’s ME that they would come to if they needed love…not YOU. You apparently think it’s cool to scare little children. You must be high on yourself by the time you leave my house because you’ve accomplished so much….you’ve portrayed yourself as the “bigger man” …..which ain’t so cool when you are comparing yourself to toddlers. Trust me…you are making yourself look like an ass and you are wearing your welcome thin.”
Seriously people…..what am I supposed to do? This sitter of mine can be very good…but it’s moments like these that just make me cringe.
When the sitter helped my oldest clean out her closet and her dressers and then had a bag of clothes for her friend’s daughter (without clearing this with me first)….and then said how MY daughter said possibly she could have this sports bag of hers for helping her…..
Well, I looked at the bags of clothes that might be sold for a little something at our up-coming garage sale but were being given to the sitter’s friend’s daughter for FREE…..and I looked at the sports bag that my daughter used for less than 2 weeks of track…a bag that cost $30 and is just about brand new….I said…”ummm….wait one second here….”
What I Meant to Say was:
“Whoaaaa Nellie!! Back up a step or two!! These are NOT YOUR child’s clothes to be giving away! These are clothes I bought MY child and it’s up to ME to give these things to who I want. I am not here for you to accumulate shit for free for yourself or for your friend’s children. YOU need to back it up…..get a grip!! That sports bag is brand new and cost a pretty penny….yeah, I hardly think I’m giving it to you for helping my kid get her chores done when I never asked you to help her in the first place!! I appreciate you helping her, but did you do it for HER? or did you do it for your FREE BENEFITS?? Bottom line…who the FUCK do you think you are???”
So, why do I keep her?
THAT is the QUESTION of the year, my friends. I am finding more and more reasons to NOT keep her. She is the only one that can sway me one way or another.
All I DO know is that I am NOT going to leave my children with less than adequate caregivers. I will not stand for it.
I AM THE MOM!!
And that is all I have to say.
Thanks for letting me link up, ladies!! I hope y0u all had a wonderful day!!
