I met my boyfriend and his daughter over a year ago. At the time his mom was taking care of her because he is a chef and he doesn't come home till 11pm-midnight. I fell in love with him and decided that I want to be a part of his life. His mom moved out and I took responsibility to take care of his daughter. I love her and I want nothing but the best for her. I feed her, take her to school, pick her up, take her to girl's scouts, and many other things. As I said before my boyfriend (her father) works late nights so he is always tired.
I have family and friends telling me that I need to have my own life and just have him find a baby sitter, but I feel like since I have time to take care of her why waste money...
Is it wrong for me to be taking care of her 24/7? Her blood mother barely keeps in contact with her so I feel bad for her and I know she looks up to me as a mother figure. Also, is it wrong for me to get annoyed and frustrated with her sometimes? Any advice will help.
