I’m sorry. 🙁

Perhaps you should talk it over with your husband and stop going so out of your way to make them feel so welcome.  I mean…if they were “actually” your kids, you would discipline them (not saying you don’t), buy them treats on special occasions, etc.  If that makes sense.  Perhaps they’re just getting too spoiled and they’re coming to expect it?

Other than that, I’m sorry to hear it!  Sometimes kids just don’t know how to appreciate the actual work you put into things.

The kid is 8 years old and doesn’t like sweets! They are kids. Kids are often whiny, unappreciative, demanding, cranky, needy, PICKY and moody. But we put up with them because we are the adults who have been entrusted with keeping them safe and relatively happy.Sometimes it’s a thankless job.

Don’t be irritated with the kid if the real issue is that you think your husband doesn’t appreciate the effort you make. Maybe it’s time for a family talk about everyone being on the same polite page and making more of an effort to appreciate each other. Because if you resent those children, do not doubt for a second that they are picking up on that.
