When I was 13.5, my sister had her second child. I lived with my sister becuase both my parents werent around. My parents never knew that my sister had a drug problem, but she did. After she had Alexis, she began asking me to babysit, and not coming home for hours. Sometimes she didnt come home for days. She ended up being a prostitute, and I was home with the baby. It was hard, I had never babysat for more than 4 or 5 hours. Then it got easier and easier. She ended up dissapearing for a while, and I just called myself into school. Then she came back and was good. She left again, about a month later. I emptied my savings paying for babysitters and stuff for that baby. I went through $3500, in 3 months. Anyone relate?
