Is it ok for a BM to spend all her money on herself and other kid and not Skids? My skids got $20 for Christmas from their BM and had to wait for that for a week. BM spent 2hrs with them the whole 2 week break. Seriously!! It happens every year to them. I can't stand to look at their sad faces. Breaks my heart. I don't like that they have to deal with their selfish mother and then try to defend her actions. I understand money is tight but to lie about it to your kids when you can spend 100s of dollars for yourself.
