The battle of the dads
I was talking with my mother the other night, and I mentioned Little Idiot's (SD22.5) New Year's Eve car crash to her. Of course, she started asking questions... "is the car totaled?" (No I don't think so) "what is Little Idiot going to do?" (Well ex stepdad called the insurance company and he thinks they will bury the deductible...blah blah blah)....
To which she responded "well, thank God for ex stepdad doing all that he does for her" I'm not entirely sure how to take that... I think in some ways my mother feels sorry for Little Idiot (even though she knows all the stuff she pulled while living here with us).... but at the same time, she's right, DH DOESN'T do much for his daughter.
Sure, if she lived here and asked him to call the insurance company and handle it for her, he would most likely do it... but she doesn't ask. She runs to ex stepdad. Ex stepdad is listed as her emergency contact on various things. Ex stepdad gets Christmas gifts. She even wanted ex stepdad to walk her down the aisle with DH.
I am just not sure how to feel about the whole things other than... GOOD. At least I don't have to deal with it bwa ha ha ha ha.
