let me summarize today's events for you guys
i stayed home and watched my younger brother for the majority of the day while:
-my other brother went to his friend's house for a sleepover
-my parents went out, got lunch, and bought themselves and my younger brother presents (supposedly some for me as well) ((i don't believe they did though))
and when i tried to express how i felt about all of that, all they said was "thank you for watching him"
i watch him all the time and all i get is a thank you, which typically i would appreciate, but here's the thing
they know how much i hate being stuck at home while everyone else has fun
it pisses me off how they had the guts to go out and leave me here to f.cking suffer by myself

@ruin. I was just wondering about your little bro making friends…if he had a friend then the friend could come over and you’d have less to do work-wise…
Try to think of projects like if he needs or wants to learn something; you can teach him. Maybe he wants to okay baseball…watch a game on tv. Practice pitching and catching and swinging bat in your backyard…jog for exercise around your backyard…. (Soccer, golf, tennis, football, etc)
If there’s something he can do that is active, it can wear him out a little so the remainder of your babysitting time is easy/maybe run around//bake cookies; (?)

@ruin I know how it feels in a way, I have a much younger sister and when I was young I had to watch her a lot. It was hard because I moved a lot and I didn't have a lot of friends. I thought I would never make it until I moved out, but I did. It does come and the life you can make as an adult can be really good.

@NCMom not only do i not have the energy for that, he's not interested in anything like that. it takes a very specific sort of activity to keep him entertained and i don't know him and his little "quirks" (not in a bad way) like his mom does. he doesn't make friends, he only has family. doing your typical kid activities is not something i can do with him at his age especially with how little impulse control he has (like if we baked, he'd probably find a way to hurt himself or brake something)
