I am ready to explode. I have had it! THese people have no respect for us and definatly dont have any respect for Sammy. Everything is all about my almost 8 year old neice. They dont care about Sammys schedule or anything and just show up! I understand that her parents do nothing with her. I understand that she loves Sammy. They do not come over here unless they have my neice with them. And then, they sit in front of the TV while we are running after 2 kids and 2 dogs. Tonight however, put me over the edge. My husband had to go away on business. He is coming home on tuesday morning. My inlaws said "We want to come over and help you out" "oh, by the way neices ballet recital is in the afternoon, Sasha (the other lab who lives with them) will stay by you and we might not be home in time to feed him" Because walking to dogs and having a difficult child in a stroller is really possible They get here at 10am (they live 10 minutes away) and leave after lunch then come back with my neice without letting me know and stay until 7:15. I told them I wanted some alone time with Sammy and they still wouldnt leave. Not to mention That Neice took Sammy into the bathroom in a split second before I could Catch the door, put my son on the toilet who then fell in. I lost it. I screamed at her for that one. That ends the potty training idea because he was terrified. To top it all off, My inlaws made a commitment to us to watch Sammy so i could get to the airport and suddenly they decide that Neice is going to san antonio so they have to go and the will not come back on thursday, only friday and by the way Sammy is done with school and I will have both dogs, husband took off that week to help. I am ready to explode with these people!!! Sorry for the long post and thanks for the ears!
