I put this in the wrong forum!!!!Sorry!!!! I am so upset or stressed about this issue and I am not even sure how to explain it. Sunday the little girl who lives in the house behind us climbed up on the fence while we were out playing. My son is 4 and has a new tree swing. She is 7.She talked to my son for a while and then asked if she could play.I said not right then because we were gonna go to the store. So the next afternoon she showed up at the front door asking to play. I have never met or even seen her parents. We moved in 6 months ago.I felt odd about it.I asked if her mama knew where she was and she said yes.I told her she could play for just a little while because I had to cook dinner soon.She asked to go play on the swing so we all went outside.Next thing I know there is another girl at the gate.She is 9.The 9 year old started playing on the swing so the seven year old started running around trying to see everything in our yard and get into everything all at once like only a kid can do. I am sort of a loner so I felt really invaded and am not used to being invaded by kids.The having to say don't climb on that please and please don't get into that every 2 seconds started to have me in a panic.She would tell me things like they didn't have any food and tell my son to tell me he was thirsty so I would get them a drink.I gave them a juice box which is something I don't normally buy and only let my son have if we are going to the park or someplace away from the house.After an hour or so my husband was home and we told my son it was time to go in to make dinner.They left.They didn't say thank you or anything in fact the 9 year old didn't say anything at all to me the entire time.When I asked what flavor drink she wanted she only shrugged. Other than being overly enthusiastic about new surroundings they were nice.They were clean,well dressed, but something was just off. After I got over my panic attack I was just sad.I don't know what to do.I knew they would be back.Are they hungry? Should I offer them some sort of food? Why are they running free?Do you just let a 7 and 9 year old go to peoples houses you don't know? Well today they showed up at the door with a 4 year old as well.Ok that can't be right.4 years old.I tried to say no but I just couldn't.The 4 year old was carrying a lunch box and some crayons. We all went outside.The 7 year old was swinging,the four year old(who turns out to be their cousin) was having some sort of grey lunch meat and the 9 year old just watched the 4 year old eat.The nine year old got to have a bite of the lunch meat and then turned to her sister and said only 3 more days til food day.My son told me he was thirsty and I said I didn't think he was the one who was thirsty.He said"yes I am she told me I was twice!" .The four year old told the 7 year old she could get a drink from the hose but the 7 year old said" no he has juice boxes!" The 4 year old repeated the word juice boxes like if was some magical thing never seen by mere mortals. I could have cried.I gave them all glasses of water.I am a heartless *itch.But the 7 year old has a very manipulative way I didn't want to encourage.The 9 year old stepped in dog poo and went home.I sat at the table and colored with the other girls for a 1/2 hour and then told them it was time to go home.They left with out a complaint. I know they will be back tomorrow. I feel awful. The thought of the four year old with no one looking after her for who knows how long makes me want to cry. 4 really is still just a baby.I am so conflicted.I have nothing to feed them.Should I go get some sort of healthy snack food so I have something to offer them.I don't want them here everyday but If they are hungry how can I possibly not let them in and give them something? They don't want to play with my son they just want to play with his things and his swing.The 7 year old kept trying to go into the house alone.I wouldn't let her.She tried to hide some toys behind her back to smuggle them outside.I don't know if she wanted to play with them or take them.It will be summer soon. I don't want to have to entertain them everyday.I am sorry this is long and I am not sure what I am even asking!It just all makes me sad and aggrivated. Any one who actually made it to the bottom of this novel have any advice? I don't want to be a heartless wench or their new babysitter.
