My husband asks me to babysit my stepdaughter on the days that I am off and he has to work. She lives about 45 minutes away, and that is where her daycare is also. It takes him a long time to get there before and after work. Although I used to offer in the past, I no longer want to watch her. A part of me feels horrible, but I feel like I have no relationship with her, nor a desire to have one. My husband and I have our own daughter, and I prefer to spend my day off with my daughter and not my stepdaughter. My husband has not gotten angry with me when he asks me, and I tell him no. Yet he still continues to ask. Is it normal to not want to spend time with your stepchild? And to resent when she comes over?
