Say no. Firmly. And stay away from them. Be cordial, but stay away from being too familiar and friendly because they will most definitely use and abuse you. Leeches 😫 Keep to yourself. Move as soon as you’re able!
They just have no idea. Tell them this is your quality time with your kids and it's precious. If they want to share the load you may be open, but as a single.mum doing everything you have to take care of your own first
Goodluck, navigating this is part of it I'm afraid.. been there..but being a single mum makes you tougher than most, you have it in you
Simply say no as you don’t want to be responsible for a child that is not yours. That god forbid something should happen while driving or walking to school you do not want to live with a guilty conscience. Of course if you wanted to be a super polite neighbour you could probably offer some help on rainy weather or 40 degree heat. I get they’re not studying or working or own a car but whatever their circumstances are they clearly need some help. We can’t really tell if they’re using you or grateful to have a lovely family orientated neighbour next door who might be able to lend a hand.
This whole thing makes my skin crawl. How people like this can live with themselves is way beyond me. Il
Just say I don’t want to be responsible for another child and be done with it.
(At four they should be worried about getting their own damn kid there)
Totally trying to take advantage of you. Say no, or they'll be expecting other stuff too. They sound like the kind of people who'd get really pissy if you couldn't take the kid one day because you are sick or something. If they were willing to take turns (and had offered this from the start) then that would be a different story.
You sound amazing mumma ❤
They sound lazy. If you agree, they seem like the kind of people who will ask for more. Definite and firm no.
What makes you think they expect ?
I hope you say no. That’s horrendous behaviour from them, i hate that people like that exist. Say no because next you’ll be doing their shopping and dropping them off at appointments 😱
