Private school for SDSubmitted by momoftwinz on Sat, 05/19/2012 - 9:40pm
I can't vent anywhere else. God forbid I say anything against SD.
SD is starting junior high in the fall. Her mother is a professional student so to accommodate her need to be in school for the rest of her natural life, they're moving and SD needs to change schools. BM wants to enroll SD in private school that's closer to our house. The inlaws (DH's parents) know this is financially a stretch so they offered to pay half the tuition, DH and BM would each pay a quarter. I know it's generous but this will still be $500 a month + whatever other expenses the school charges. SD's talking about all the after school activities she can sign up for, Japanese lessons, piano lessons, of course it's all about spending money than coming to our house after school.
I know stepmothers are suppose to suck it up and deal with the expenses or the stepkid but it don't get how it's okay to screw over your other kids. To swing private school for DH wants to delay putting our twin boys in preschool. I guess SD's education more important than the boys. Who cares if they're behind in kindergarten.
I get no say in any of this. I'm a stay at home mom. He's makes the money, he gets to decide how to spend it. So SD gets private school.
