    So, you want us to do both kid's sports (on at the same time, in different place) on our weekend (ok fine, there's two of us), AND on your weekend you want us to take DSS to his, while you take DSS?
    And you want us to take DSS to training every Wed, and DSD every Fri??

    No. We get that it is difficult but we warned you this would happen if you kept enrolling them in things without telling us. It sucks that we have to split up on OUR weekend, we're not doing it on your time too. Especially as you refuse to give us more access (training is at 6pm, so we offered to take kids home with us and drop back following day...nope have to drop them to hers).

    Forget it. We will do DSD's training on our weekend, and both sports on our weekend. That's it.

    (Of course this means DSS will lose out because "he's younger so it's not as important"...).

    that sounds so complicated?? DT75. is there any sort of limit you can place on the amount of running around?? i understand that sport is important and good for the children, but surely it has to be able to be worked without major inconvience to you and your family time. hugs, marie.

    We've tried to talk to her about limiting the activities they do; about discussing the activities she is considering them doing with us; and about what is a reasonable expectation.
    She neither listens, nor cares.

    [DSD's teacher recently expressed concern about her being exhausted in class, and her (already bad) work dropping. She (teacher) said she feels DSD is doing too many activities, and that she needs to drop at least half of them. Mother went nuts. Them complained to us about the teacher "overstepping", until we agreed, and now we are the worst people on earth.]

    Unfortunately, when we say 'no' it is because we genuinely can't do it. So she just doesn't take them, or only takes DSD (clear favourite), and b*tches at us everytime.

    ETA: she also never checks the activities out fully, so they clash really badly on occasion, and she expects us to just drop everything and help out. It's not possible sometimes. She complains that she needs help because her work needs to get done, but refuses to acknowledge that so does ours.

    I've been in an all day meeting and came out to find 5 missed calls and messages from DS's daycare saying he's not well!
    They have 4 numbers to call and they only rang mine! After 5 hours of ringing, they didn't think to call DF or one of the others?
    They knew he had vaccs yesterday and might need panadol!

    Dh you are home late every night this week (ds is already asleep) & will be gone all day sunday, so why cant you understand why im upset that you chose to sleep in for an extra 45 mins this morning meaning you only got to see ds for 10 mins before you had to go to work. I would have thought your 8 month old son who adores you would be more important than a sleep in. Obviously not. Not to mention helping me in the morning - you changed him when he first got up & used the last nappy - you didnt even bother to tell me that there were no nappies made up, so i found out after id taken ds's nappy off & reached down to get another & the box was empty. Sometimes i feel like a single mum......
