Babysitting Dilemma: A Big Family's Big Request 🍼

Our protagonist finds herself in a tricky situation. She and her boyfriend, Jake, live in a 3-bedroom rental, while Jake's mom, Vicky, has a house full of kids and another one on the way. 🤯 Vicky asks the couple to babysit the younger kids for a few weeks after the new baby is born. However, our protagonist isn't too keen on the idea, especially after a previous babysitting experience that left them spending their own money on the kids. 😓 Vicky persists, even suggesting they come stay on the family's sofa to help out. Jake feels guilty, knowing his parents are overwhelmed, but our protagonist can't help but feel like it's immoral to enable them. 😕 So, what does the internet think of this situation? Let's check out some top responses! 🍿
