I love, love, LOVE this thread!
I am loving this thread- its been 3 long years of hell with my lovely step daughters. Their mother I swear to god must be in the same group as all the other BM's plotting how to make our lives hell. Yes it's fine to send your 4 year old here with gastro when I have an immunocomprimised 14 month old and a 2 week old baby- you do need your trip to Thailand- how could I possibly suggest you take that kid back. And I completely understand that for 2 years you were happy to dump your kids on my but you weren't ready to "meet" me. Umm who lets a stranger watch their kids for 2 years without even meeting them- well guess what I'm too busy to meet you now and I wouldn't waste my time anyway. Sorry for the vent
Lol, funny cause it is sooo true. Bm went on a cruise over christmas so despite gastro, ss came to us for a week of hell. Every single person in our family was violently sick, dh, ds1, ds2 (only a year at that time) and I ended up in hospital as I was preg. Only one person was actually fit on christmas day and went to all the parties - ss...
We are still paying off the credit for his flights then and they are already asking for the next visit...
Ladies- these rules need to go to print so that "step mums to be" can get an insight to how hard our lives really are and the crap we have to put up with!!
So glad I've been directed here. Needed a good laugh and I also feel validated now. So glad I'm not alone in this big ugly world of "being a step mum"!!
they are pretty good aren't they
I had another read over them and i felt so much better afterwards.
Well ... DP got me to serve BM divorce papers last Wednesday...
When she brought the kids home on Sunday, she had a go at DP, saying that someone is calling her in the middle of the night saying we are engaged, getting married soon and other things which she wouldn't mention... she said if it doesn't stop she will go to the police !
GRRR it's not us ! She would be the last person we would tell when we get engaged
I just "love" it when SS comes to our place all annoyed and ignores me and is needy to his dad because BM spent the last week telling SS that I'm a bad person who is taking his dad away from him. We then have to spend the first 2 days deprograming him only for it to happen again next time. I guess I now know where "evil step mother" came from.
