Is she saying things that are stating the obvious or things that are questioning your parenting?
Yes the nits thing is obvious and annoying, but she is being thorough and not leaving anything to chance. That's probably not about you and more about the type of person she is.
I would try hard to suck it up and not call her on it. If you upset her she could agitate your ex and he could decide he wants more custody. Things are good now. I would roll with it and just humour her.
If they've been together 3 years they're probably about to either break up or have a baby. If she has a baby she will be too busy to annoy you.
In which case maybe if there is something serious like nits the OP could take control of the situation and let her ex know what she is doing to get rid of the nits... Before his GF has a chance to stick her nose in.
As a step parent i probably have been guilty of accidently stating the obvious. Although we got along ok and there wasn't ever tension between birth mum and i.... i also never made contact with her myself. I left that to df. I felt it wasn't my place.
We could easily sit and chat face to face even on our own. No dramas.
I think you can either
- let it go....
- respond to her. "Thanks. Already done it 😃"
- say something to your ex
- call her on it.
Id probably work down that list as time went on.
My partners (now ex) gf used to do this. I found out later on it was him telling her to txt me.
We (her and I) are now good friends, lol
I like the thumbs up idea. that's a good one. Its definitely not him telling her to text me. He wouldn't tell me how to parent. I'm thinking its either her way of showing me that she can step up and be a role model and constantly wanting to remind me or her being b****y as she doesn't like me very much.
My husband's ex wife used to email me info about step-parenting courses and other printed matter about step-parenting. Gees, it used to absolutely rile me because believe me, she was (is) far from the model parent. She gave up eventually.
