Greetings. Being the son who is single and can do most of the work from home, I am tasked with caring for my aging mother (both her and my father already asked me, half-joking, to move back in, but that's not the case). Question is, every December my sister-in-law gets a temporary job, so she sends her two daughters (6 and 4 y.o.) for my mother to babysit. Since she can't, I have to travel 65 miles to handle my mother and two kids. They're the sweetest things (that goes double for my mom), but nevertheless they drain me. After the kids leave, I am too tired/overwhelmed to work. In short, every December I have to stop working so my SIL can. How can I make my family understand and respect my career and still help my mom? Thanks in advance.
