Having known Dilf for ..um..........sorry,that's wrong, I don't know him at all)...but,anyway I think the word you may have been looking for is 'caress'? Amazing how a couple of letters can change a meaning,eh? No wonder the "English" language can be embarrassingly awkward for 'foreigners' to learn. Hope this helps.....

There's a guy who lives down the road with his girlfriend. He's got a son about age 8 who is friends with the lil ones. He's fighting for custody of the boy against his ex.

The last month of the last school year the dad asked if we would watch the kid for 2 hours before and 2 hours after school while he's at work because his ex has made accusations against his girlfriend and for some reason he didn't want her to be alone with the child (they have one child in common and she's expecting another any day now). The big guy figured it was temporary and agreed.

We are in the school year again and the kid has been over almost every day. Gets dropped off before anyone in our house is awake and is gone by the time I get home. The dad has not offered up one cent for babysitting, hasn't said thank you, hasn't offered to buy snacks for him after school or anything and doesn't feed him breakfast before he drops him off. He's even sent the kid over sick for a week straight & the kid gets snot all over everything. It's disgusting.

Watching the kid is something the big guy agreed to at the end of the last school year and, honestly, the kid is a pain in the rear and I'm the one who has to deal with him in the mornings. I don't want to watch him, I've got enough on my plate already getting two ready for school etc, and the big guy doesn't want to be mean & tell the dad to find someone else. I never see the dad at all.

In any case..... two things are bothering me here. 1) the dad is taking advantage of our generosity and 2) the big guy is too whimpy to tell the dad sorry find someone else. I feel he's the one who agreed to watch the kid, he should be the one to tell the dad.

Well, that's what's bothering me the most today anyways....

Yeah, that sucks......BUT.....
This kid will remember you for life.
This kid might not have positive poeple in his life, except you.
You are doing the greater good for the kid, and maybe, just maybe you'll reap the reward later in life......a longshot, but it would be nice to be visited by a 25 year old guy who remembers your generosity and ends up helping you in your later years.

Kudos to you, you should be proud.....

but.... the kids a pain in the REAR!!!!
lol

then again most are. hee hee

Shady - my advice to u is if this whole situation really bothers u and since it affects u the most, to just come out urself and tell this man that its just too much for u to handle now - otherwise u end up resenting the kid thru no fault of his own, because its his dad thats really the pain in the rear because the man has No common sense...

I get put into these kinds of things where I work and I too go along with it, but only for so long, theres only so much a person can be taken advantage of and eventually its time to think of urself - u are just as important - keep saying that girl!
women tend to be the caretaker, and forget to take care of their needs too.
good luck.

it bothers me that they keep delivering these stupid township papers that I didn't ask for and I have no idea how to put a stop to them.
and I have to keep bending over to pick them up all the time! I should call and complain that these people are littering my driveway!
lol

Aww shadybit I know what u mean. But the kid apparently has no one else ugh it pulls at ur heartstrings. I have a fun yard for kids but its for my kids and I end up with kids pawned off on me allll the time. These parents these days don't teach their kids right. My parents taught me not to invite myself places. I get at least three kids or parents calling me every week my kid wants to spend the night. Or can I come play. Ugh even parents that just show up in driveway and sends kid to door " can I come over" in the summertime it is a few a day. Honestly I have plenty of kids already with just mine. sht I guess they think she got a bunch of kids one more won't hurt.

I agree it's better than the lettered bomb...but using the "F" bomb...shows lack of education and respect...so it's not a good choice either...

Hi Shady,
I agree w/ DILF. But I'm also thinking that the dad might have no idea that the little boy is still spending so much time with you.
Hum? It has been at least 4-5 months now, right? He may have won the custody battle. Meanwhile girlfriend is heavy with child or given birth by now,... Think,,, why did the dad make those arrangements in the first place? Could be the boy resent his 'new' mommy, new brother and or baby, and is a holy terror at home? Could it be the GF dropping him off in the AM after dad leaves for work?
Here is what I would do. Invite the couple over for a Sat. or Sunday brunch or dinner. Chat up, and hear from the horses mouth what is going on. This way you can explain your busy life and suggest that yous swap weeks for sitting. Then you and your big guy can have a few free mornings and evenings with them watching your kids. Hum?
