Trying to do right

I'm on vacation down in Disney; ONLY to help my sister, who's a single mom of a 5 & 1 year old. I cannot say a word, or express myself; she questions nearly every move, gesture, question i may have. She doesn't stop. I'M EXHAUSTED. I love her & her children VERY DEARLY. There's no way she could've driven from New Orleans, and done Disney Springs, Jurassic Park, Universal, Sea World, Magic, Animal and back at Magic tonight. We leave Saturday. GIVE ME STRENGTH. I'm trying.

What a great uncle you are! That's a lot of parks in a row! Seriously, though, the kids will remember it always.  Hope you have some Starbucks and ibuprofen! :notworthy: :notworthy:

Good for you for being there for the kids!

 

Now treat yourself and crank your favorite RUSH album as a reward!

Never keep anyone else warm by lighting yourself on fire. No matter who it is.

It’s up to you to stop her.  Lay down the Law with her, and don’t be meek about it.

Remember, you’re there for her and your nieces/nephews, not for yourself.  That doesn’t mean that you can be disrespected.  If she is polite and respectful, do what she asks.  If she is not, ask her to be respectful, and then do what she asks.

That seems a mature way to handle it.  On the end if it becomes abusive, one may need to step back.  Of course, that hurts the kids.
