Am I being selfish?
I'm due in March 2016 and my brothers 3rd is due in October 2015. I have 4 siblings 3 of which have 6 kids between them. My mom babysat all of their kids from 6 weeks to still. Ages are 3-10. She has the 3yo all day everyday and will have the infant when it reaches 6 weeks. She does all of this for free and provides 3 meals a day for 4 of them.
We planned to pay for day care as we live 45mins from her and did not want to stick her with our kid. Unfortunately some things have come up and we had to take that from daycare budget. I want my mom to watch our child. But just our child I think 2 infants would be to much for her. I plan to pay her the remainder of the day care budget. I want her to make my brother and his wife pay for day care. They have been taking advantage for 5 years. And honestly my mom takes care of all my siblings and their kids. Seriously my 30 yo sister her 2 kids and my 25 yo brother live with her. I just want my turn. And unlike them I am more than happy to pay her or I even offered to buy her a car so she could drive to my house. But she will not tell my other siblings no, and therefore is basically telling me no.
