This is a moan about my bro and sisters.they have 7 children between them,i offered a babysitter for eve part of wedding and they said no its grand,latest is between the 5 of them they have decided to bring a babysitter with them,i am so annoyed as she will be there the whole weekend and they expect me to pay for her meals and accomdation.not a chance they said ah its not fair on us having to watch the children-sorry they are your children.
Snuddlums, as u said, you'd be the worst in the world if you'd said no kids. Offering to get a babysitter for the evening is the right thing to have done and don't listen to anything else about a weekend long babysitter at your expense. They're parents, they've a choice - don't bring them and then they can kick back and not be parents for the day or bring them and look after them (with a break if they take u up on the babysitter after dinner). They can't have it both ways and it's crazy that they want to
are they not offering to pay for babysitter??? that's kinda cheeky...
definetly think if they are bringing a babysitter themselves [b:2fgdyh69]they should be paying all her expenseses[/b:2fgdyh69], its not like you asked them to bring one, you offered to get one out at the hotel...
If they've decided to [b:17s1n80c]BRING[/b:17s1n80c] the sitter then it's up to them to pay her and besides there's enough of them to split it!
Agree with the others, if they bring a babysitter thats their choice, its nothing to do with you and no way should you be paying anything for the babysitter!

No way, between them all they can afford to pay one babysitter who will sit and watch a dvd in the room with them... wont cost them that much for their sister's wedding... yep, you're right and they're wrong!
I just said straight out no im not paying and il speak to hotel.Families what would you do with them?
if they are bringing her,,, id dont see how you would have to pay for her accomdation etc. maybe crossed wires??
