I’d like to pose a question.December 18, 2007
Okay, I met this mom recently at Fa’s school. She’s someone who is very smart and very together…Most of the time. I like her. I have even let Fa go there for a playdate after school…by herself. In her car. (A first!) I don’t trust anyone.
And the kid has come here once after school on her own. The two kids like each other.
Turns out, this woman’s mom is ill and her husband works. She had to go be with her mom in another country…and she has left her daughter (Fa’s age) with me after school last Friday and again this Monday from about 12pm to 3pm.
Now, she has asked if I can do it again the rest of the week because she won’t be home for at least another week. I told her and her husband I could do Today and Friday. However, Thursday and Friday the kids are off from school so that means I would have her daughter ALL DAY on Friday.
If I wanted two kids, I’d have them.
And I refuse to do all week. I just know my limits, you know?
I really don’t know these people all that well. We just met. And my initial vibe was that I liked her.
Here’s my question:
Am I being taken advantage of?
When is enough enough?
Am I being too negative?
