Me (35 F) and my brother (30 M) are very close, and we always have been. He has been coming over almost every day for the past couple years, and he practically lives at my house (despite him having his own apartment). I don't mind it and neither does my husband because he helps out around the house and is great with my daughter Stella (10 F).
Every year we go on a family vacation with me, my husband, my daughter, and my brother. I don't bring our mom and dad because they already do their own vacations around this time, it's nothing personal. This year we were going to stay at a hotel by a beach, and I reserved suite rooms for all 4 of us.
The vacation is in 1 week at this moment. Yesterday, I had to run a few errands, and I needed my husband to help out with a few of them. I asked my brother to babysit Stella while we were gone, and he agreed. I told him thank you, and then was out the door. I was a little bit worried because he has never babysat Stella before, (I don't usually need my husband for errands, and he is unemployed so he's always home.) but I knew how great he was with her, and assumed everything would be fine.
After running the errands, I drove back home, and to my horror, I saw my daughter sitting in the road, playing with her dolls. I stopped, the car, ran out, grabbed my daughter, and brought her inside. As soon as I walked in I saw my brother watching some movie on the couch. I screamed something along the lines of, "What TF, you just left my daughter unsupervised in the road after I told you to babysit her! She could've gotten run over by a car, or someone could've kidnapped her! You're always so great with Stella and I gave you one effing job, to babysit her for a little over an hour while a ran errands. F you, get out of my house, and you are excluded from the family vacation."
He stared at me with wide eyes, and said something like "I didn't mean to, I just got so into the movie and I thought Stella would be okay." and "At least she didn't get ran-over/kidnapped." and afterwards he started begging for me to let him go on the vacation still. Saying he never gets to do ANYTHING nice, and it would be cruel to exclude him for one little mishap. He called me a major AH.
I asked some of my friends about it, and most of them said, although what he did was wrong, he said sorry and it was just a mistake, and I should stop being such an AH. None of them have kids though.
Extra info edit: Stella can be slow and sometimes acts way younger than she is. She has gotten into dangerous situations before. We haven't brought a doctor into this situation because we assumed she'd grow out of it. Anyways, I thought it'd be safer to have her be babysat due to us noticing this. I probably should've mentioned this.
Edit 2: For the person that asked, we homeschool her. And the other reason we never took Stella to the doctor is that the year we actually were thinking about it, my husband broke multiple bones after being in an accident and we had to pay a lot of money for the cast, etc. We thought that we should just save our money because we thought it was something Stella was likely to get over. Also, I see a lot of people saying "Poor Stella.", and I get that what I did was wrong now, after seeing the majority of comments being YTA, but you can't judge my family after one post. Stella is completely content with us as her parents, loves us so much, and expresses that very often. We take good care of her otherwise then a couple slip-ups. We provide her a roof, food, clothes, love, hugs, kisses, and everything we possibly can. The other thing I would like to address is someone said my brother could be abusing her. I promise you this is completely out of the question because my daughter is a very vocal child and always says how much she loves my brother, playing with him, and etc. And my husband is always home when they hang out and sees how much fun they have.
