SD brat will never learn and DH will never be a father

Ashleytenorio17's picture

So finally SD has been coming on her weekends again and for the most part I try to make myself very scarce when she is here. This past weekend was DS (4) birthday and BS (9) birthday as well so we had a very small family gathering at our house, SD was here for her weekend but BS had his weekend with His BD but his BD let him come over Saturday for a few hours . I made treat bags for all the kids and it was time for DS to go back with his dad. So he grabbed the treat bag next to his things and left.

Will DSO ever leave BMs head? Probably not.

I've been at ST for many years but with skids grown I don't have a need to post much but still come and read once in awhile.  The stories never change, just the user names.  No advice needed...I'm finally past the mind game stage of the divorce life just a little anecdote.

The lack of transparency of BM never surprises me.  2 incidents in 2 days really drives it home that she will never give up hope DSO will come back.

If you bet on the counselor you won!

So the counselor emailed BM's lawyer back today! She basically reiterated what DH said in his email, in a more professional tone. Then said because BM booked the appointment, she couldn't force her to use it as the joint session and if she wanted to just bring SS10 she could. But she did say firmly that it wasn't what she recommended. So if BM doesn't want to do the joint session now, she is specifically going against the counselors recommendation! 


Am I wrong?

Hi, I'm super new and needed a place to vent. I've been with my bf for almost 3 yrs now. About a year and a half ago his son came to live with us. I still don't know the full story why he did, but put it this way or for the better. He was 5 when my bf brought him home to stay, and he did not talk, was not potty trained, and look completely malnurished. The mother obviously severely neglected him and it was so sad to see because he is such a sweet boy. I've worked extra hard to get him on track and I'm proud to say he's had a major 180!


Christina Haack El Mousa Anstead TBD.....

Saw a pop up news headline the other day.  Christina (of Flip or Flop fame on HGTV, and apparently Flop on marriage) recently squeezed out a puppy with her 2nd DH and now two-ish years after marrying DH #2  is divorcing DH #2.  All after apparently having her second child in an effort to shore up the marriage with her first DH.  That anyone would consider breeding as a relationship saving effort is mind boggling to me.

Step biting and leaving bruises on himself from boredom

Layla1014's picture

Hello, I have a 7-year-old stepson, my previous entries dealt with struggling to care for him, he lives with his mom again due to her wanting child support and me being unable to care for him. Her sister helps her care for him and she has a daughter. They play together. Last night, bio mom told fiancee stepson harmed himself because he was bored. He has toys there and a cousin to play with, he comes over weekends but wants to move back because he wants video games, he wants to go back and forth between parents and that cannot be. I am just wondering if this is normal.

Skid free for almost 4 months now

DH was incredibly hurt by skids taking part in Maggot's manipulation games when she moved.

It couldn't have been more transparent. The first time in their lives that a 15 and 11 year old remember Father's Day and their dad's birthday (and happen to "remember" together) is followed by radio silence after DH allows the move to happen.

Talk about a red flag

and I don't mean one about bf, but rather any of the women bf's brother has been intimate with/been in a reltionship with. Basically the biggest reason bf and I have not been out to his home state until now even though we have been together over 2 years now is because bf’s family is a mess. Specifically his dad, mom, and all 3 of his half siblings cause a lot of drama and aren’t the best of people. Bf’s dad is the exception, although his mistakes are making bad decisions and having too much faith in people.
