So my parents have been divorced since I was born and I make yearly visits to my dad an step mom which includes my step brother and sister. Seeing as though I am 27 this is no new thing. But this visit seems to be the hardest yet, I am without my husband because he had to work and I have my two year son ad I'm currently in my second trimester of being pregnant. To make it even more difficult my family is completely dysfunctional starting with my dad who thinks it's ok to comment on my pregnancy acne, my step mom who is passive but yet slightly manipulative and my brother and sister who are the biggest brats I had ever met. They get whatever they want whenever they want and oh have I mentioned they are 18 and 20? They have no respect for anything including being quite during nap times. My father buys my plane ticket and wouldn't buy my son a seat because i am just supposed to handle having my son sit on my pregnant belly for three hours. Now some might be asking why is father buying our plane ticket? Well he wasn't really involved in my life well for most of my life so it's the least he can do. Seeing as though I am pregnant again this will be our last trip down here for a while, which is why I agreed to a three week visit but I am having a hard time coping with everything. I feel like I have to be on 24/7 making during my son is ok or my stoner sister hasn't done something stupid or if my brother can be quite enough to wake my son up. I have tried talking to my dad and step mom about this behavior but they don't get it. Please any useful advice would be much appreciated.
