    rule whoblardycares: You will always always ALWAYS be last in the pecking order of whose thoughts and feelings and life plans matter. It goes BM, then SF, then DH and then if you are lucky, you. More likely then not it will be BM's other kids (sometimes before DH), Stepkids, your kids (with DH and from previous), the dog, the cat, the next door neighbour, and then finally you.

    Wow thank you ladys, i almost cried reading this. It is so nice to know that i am not the only one.

    I do love my ss but some times it is hard to do so much for him and get such disrespect in your own home, for him to tell me son that he hates me and to say i am a silly fat lady. Just ignore me if he is in a mood. But it is because he has it hard.

    Never expect common courtesy to be something we try and teach and enforce because bm does not seem to care.

    Ha Lucky for me DP & BM my DP filters what comes thru to me from BM.
    However DPs family continually point out to me I'm not the mother, I have no say, BM has all the cards & makes all the rules.
    Drives me nuts considering BM isn't a particularly organized on top of stuff parent soooo I do LOTS of running around, drs dentist specialist swimming dancing & GOD forbid I expect BM to quit complaining she has no money & go get a JOB.

    Thru it all I grin & bear it while going crazy inside. BUT my SD does make it all worth it, I just figure I never had the discomfort of pregnancy or the pain of labour THIS crap is my PAIN:-D

    If BM has organized lessons or tutors you have to follow her routine in your week. BUT if you organize some dance classes for dsd don't expect the bm to take her to them on her week, after all it doesn't fit in with her schedule. It's so one sided.... We have to tow the line with whatever she booked in before we started doing one week on one week off, but when we try to organize some classes for dsd then suddenly the bm decides she doesn't have to do the stuff we organize....I forgot it only works ine way.

    Be allowed to be manipulated and deceived by BM about her financial situation (that effects cm and centrelink) and then find out thru the kids that she's actually lying and then act like u don't know because u don't want the kids to "get in trouble" for mentioning it or don't want to get annoyed infront of the kids because it's not their fault their mother is a lier!!!

    Lol!! Of course it is! We aren't allowed to actually tell anyone how we really feel. Goodness what would everyone think if we made these rules go public, there would be an outcry!
    We are a secret society and it must remain that way, to keep everyone else happy.
