Default I Had A Backbone!

I finally told my family I would no longer watch them late. They at first said that it was fine then told me they were going down to a couple days starting this summer. Well I feel so much better about it even if they are not coming much anymore and today had an interview and already filled there spot. So yay! Im so happy and I feel soooo much better about it all!

Congrats. I did the same thing a few months back. I still agree to work the extra 15 minutes in the summer, but during the off season when the dad isn't working, I don't want to work late if I don't have to.

I also put my big girl panties on plenty of other times after this. It's much easier to stand up for yourself once you've done it a few times. I even had to let a family go because I couldn't stand them anymore. Issues with following policy and the infant was a devil.
