Grrr I'm so mad ATM. I have 1 DD and 3 step kids, all whom I raise. My 3 step kids see their mum every 2nd weekend (if it suits her) and then half of school holidays (again, if it suits her).
She missed last Xmas and Easter holidays coz she just didn't want them. (they are 14, 10, 8).
These school holidays she was meant to have them 2 weeks (as her w/e fell with half school hols and we have 3 weeks hols). This is all good, she has done her duty for the past two weeks. I had asked DH to ask her if she'd have them for the third week too (organized this weeks ago) as I'm 33 weeks pregnant and have had lots of complications and Ob thought I would have delivered by now.
She said she would have them through the day but no overnight (long story). That was good, i was happy with that.
Now that I'm not in hospital yet, DH tells me, "oh we'll we can have the kids home now, coz your not in hospital"! I'm like "no, your a work all day, and then do OT almost 3-4 times a week, I'm not having the kids when "their mother" has already agreed to have them through the day. I never get a break from your kids and I need this break. She constantly gives them up to suit her, and you do nothing about it. I want next week to myself and DD without the added stress of your kids".
He is now angry/upset with me for not wanting his kids home.
Do I have a right to want an extra week to myself? I can have this baby anyday now, an i already raise his kids full time. He works long hours, and expects me to just play mum.... Tell me I have a right to want this extra week with just DD (who is 15). Pleeeeease!!!
