Splitting kids/skids cell phone with the Ex?

Please tell me if and how you guys do this.
BM has now proposed her and DH split the cell phone bill for SS.
We have 4 kids: 2 bios for me (BS15 and BD13) and 2 for DH (SS14 and SD9)

Found an interesting email

So, many of you might know how my SD22 is only lovey dovey with daddykins when she wants $. Not unlike your skids I'm sure.

It just keeps getting better...

So, I posted earlier about my SS22 being in a car accident and how my DH wants me to care for her since I'm a chiropractor. NOT gonna happen...

Interesting conversation

As time comes closer to OBS graduating I've noticed he isn't speaking with many people any more. The friends he's had since 7th 8th grade. I was curious and asked last night.

Cause I'm not dealing with her crap !!!

Thursday night OBS has a dinner at school to present his jersey number and spot on the team. It's a pretty big deal I found out freshman year when I showed up in jeans and a Tshirt.

SD3 won't sleep through the damn night

Long story short... BM co sleeps with her. She is not capable of sleeping through the night in her own bed on any given night.
