May I be petty for a moment? Thank you.
Can I be petty? I have some pettiness just bubbling up inside and figure why not take it here.
I've been trying and succeeding at being relatively tolerant and positive about BM and the kid because my SO is (mostly) worth the tolerance, but BM did a few things recently that are worthy of posting.
She is seeing more clearly now that SO and I are serious... so she is freaking out a bit. Really ramping up the relationship with the new guy, crying before drop offs and getting the kid upset about leaving her, etc.
SO tells her we are taking kid on a vacation end of month. So, obviously you all know what happens next... her and new boyfriend immediately book a trip at a childrens resort and whisk the kid away before our trip.
I know, I know, I shouldn't look.... but she is posting all sorts of albums and it is slow at the office...
Family photos of her, new boyfriend and kid, vacationing at an all indoor kiddie resort in the summer. Photos of her, taken by new boyfriend, soaking seductively in 4 inches of water in the bathtub in kiddie resort hotel room, with a glass of wine in hand. Lots of quotes and emojis about "her loves."
She tries to be nice, showed up on fathers day to get kid with a card, but she just freaks me out. No concept of boundaries. She is very young.
I had to be petty and get it out. But anyway, hopefully the kid has a fun time and that she enjoyed her lukewarm soak and sutter home wine at a kids hotel. Making memories is what matters.
