My mom watches DS during the week for us. She is supposed to be at my house Monday, Tuesday, Thursday from 8:10-4:45ish. I get done with work so usually I'm home about 4:40pm. We pay her for her to watch him. I have to work at 8:30am. She's been coming to my house at 8:20 every single day for at least 2 months and I casually mention that she needs to come earlier. Today I finally had it and told her she needed to start coming earlier. Especially with DS getting up earlier lately. I realize I'm spoiled in the fact that my DC comes to me 3x a week and it's my mom but my job is my job. I need to be there. She mad the comment "What do you expect me to be here from 8-5 every day? That's a long day, I can't do that long." I never said that and I'm home at freaking 4:40 everyday! So what do I do? What do I say? I don't want to hurt her feelings or make her think she's not appreciated because she is. This is why I was hesitant to have her watch him. She volunteered by the way. HELP!
