Background: My sister is a SAHM with a 2.5 year old. My mom babysits him about 5-6 days a week, not all day but usually all afternoon and/or all evening. She goes on and on endlessly about how she never gets a day off since she's a SAHM, and basically acts like she's better than everyone else for being so dedicated for her child. She even calls and guilts me about not babysitting him enough because she needs a "break" even on days where I know she just got him back for my mom.
Me and my parents watch survivor together every week, it's been our tradition since the show started and even after I moved out I kept going there to watch. Because my nephew is so active, and my dad didn't want to break our tradition he declared survivor night babysitting free so that we could watch it together in peace. Last night when I went over my sister still hadn't showed up to pick up my nephew, and when my mom called my sister she gave some sob story and asked my mom to just drop him off. My dad and I were both a little irritated, so we told her to hurry so we could watch the show and I could get home and finish a project I'm doing. So on her way to drop him off she backed into my car!!!!!
And to make it worse, when she returned from dropping him off she yelled at me that it was my fault that she had the accident, because I was impatient and critical and selfish and I don't understand how hard it is to be a mother. I'm feeling so frustrated right now. I didn't force her to drive into my car, and I was perfectly calm and understanding when she told me. Accidents happen. I just feel upset that an hour a week to continue our tradition is too much to ask of them when it isn't even their baby!
