|Can you watch my child(ren)? Can you run my errand? Can you find this info? I've even gotten some like "Can you make my invitations?" and "Can you do my laundry?"|
|Just say a big fat "no." Once you say "no" enough time, people will stop asking you for favors. There are people who really think SAHMs do little or nothing all day long, so they seem shocked when you cannot take on their responsibilities.|

" I would be happy to do anyone of your errands favors etc only after you shadow me for a day and tell me exactly when I will be doing these things."
