My little ones are really excited and won't leave him alone, but my oh's sister is round (neighbours so she's here a lot hmm) and she keeps telling my kids what to do, she's only 11 but acts about 20, but if any of my kids touch her cat she's goes mental. She won't let them sit next to their new bloody dog, or touch him, and keeps telling them to leave him alone, she even informed me I should FEED him later. Maybe I'm just being extra grumpy (I am 39 weeks pregnant) but she does my nut, I can bet she's the same when the baby arrives she'll think she has the right to pick a newborn bloody baby up. Argghhh sorry. I know I am being unreasonable just needed to rant!

Is there any reason why you have not told her off?!

NotSayingImBatman Sat 24-Jan-15 14:05:32

Okay, she's 11. If she's pissing you off, send her home!

pictish Sat 24-Jan-15 14:05:39

She's 11 - get her told, and don't take any more of her shit. confused

You're keen, a new dog & 39 weeks pregnant.
Just tell her to go home.

pictish Sat 24-Jan-15 14:07:18

And yes ffs send her home.

It's not normal to get that annoyed with an 11 year old so I think hormones must be playing a part here! Take a deep breath and remember she's 11.

You need to tell her or it will get worse.

pictish Sat 24-Jan-15 14:08:09

I dunno...I think 11 yr olds are pretty fucking annoying.

notonyourninny Sat 24-Jan-15 14:08:22

Erm, your the adult so why are you letting achild rule the roost. Wtf are you thinking? A dog and a nb?

diddl Sat 24-Jan-15 14:08:55

is she just showing off?

If everyone is fussing the dog is she feeling left out?

And does the dog need some peace??

Ems1812 Sat 24-Jan-15 14:10:05

She's 11 & bossing your family around?!

Tell her to sod off.
It's your house, your children & your dog. She has no say in what goes on in your home whatsoever & she needs to be told to behave or go home.

Shes 11, still a child.
Be the grown up and sort it, tell her to stop or go home

Cornettoninja Sat 24-Jan-15 14:10:41

Keep in mind even though she's sil she's still only 11.

That been said, it's your house and a child doesn't get to dictate the rules. A child that doesn't live there who is being intrusive can go home. Tell her you've all go things to be getting on with and you'll see her later/tomorrow/next week.

11 year olds are a pain in the arse, especially when they're not your own.

Tell her to give it a rest or go home.

HermioneWeasley Sat 24-Jan-15 14:10:57

Just tell her to move/shut up as it is YOUR kids new dog and they are keen to get to know it.

Also, just to clarify, if your OH's sister is 11 and lives next door, do you live next door to your in laws?

AnyFucker Sat 24-Jan-15 14:11:34

There is a simple solution

how strange it hasn't occurred to you

and you got a new dog at 39 weeks pregnant ?


bigfam Sat 24-Jan-15 14:11:42

Oh dear, a dog and a newborn. If an 11 year old is annoying me u asking Wtf I'm doing with a dog and a newborn has really pissed me off, sorry I didn't know I needed YOUR opinion or approval. angry

RebekahMikaelson Sat 24-Jan-15 14:12:56

God you sound rough.

Ems1812 Sat 24-Jan-15 14:13:32

Also I would set down some set times/days that she will be allowed over to prevent her charging in all the time & taking over. Especially with a new baby on the way, you don't need the stress.

ShatnersBassoon Sat 24-Jan-15 14:13:34

You'll be glad of the child when you've a newborn and need someone to walk the dog. That's next week or thereabouts, so keep her sweet.

IDontDoIroning Sat 24-Jan-15 14:13:38

She's 11 a) smile and say all breezily "this is my house sweetheart and I say who sits where and when my dog gets his food"
b) tell her to go home now as you're very busy, open the door, usher her out shut, the door

ILovePud Sat 24-Jan-15 14:13:43

Lots of kids behave like this at 11 but it's your house and they are your DC and your dog so just correct her, it's far worse to allow this behaviour to continue and for your resentment to fester.
