BM Continues to Show Her Selfishness
So, as I have mentioned previously, our BM will not parent. For the last 11 years, she has pawned off all parenting responsibilities on her parents, and then her GF after they started dating. BM refuses to parent but refused to let DH have SS either. SS has informed us of BM's lack of parenting, often without seeing her fault in it. We have found out that GF has done everything for the past 5ish years since BM moved in with her - done daily school pick up and drop off, done all medical appointments, done all sport transportation, etc. BM only ever tends to SS when he is home and there is no other option and usually she isn't with him more than a few hours a day, typically just feeding him dinner and telling him to go to bed. BM on the other hand, uses all of her free time to workout, pursue hobbies, and work. It's almost like she lives a child free life.
Last week, DH received an email from BM's GF stating that GF took SS to the doctor for his annual physical. GF provided DH with the full report. DH thanked her for the update. Tonight, we talked to SS on the phone and SS said that GF went out of town on business for a few days and BM refuses to disrupt her routine, so SS has to wake up tomorrow at 5 am to join her at the gym for her morning workout before he goes to school. What parent can't sacrifice a few gym sessions to ensure their kid has enough sleep to function through a whole day of school and a whole evening of sports? SS11 will be up for 16 hours tomorrow from the time he wakes up at 5 am until the time he goes to bed at 9 pm. She clearly deserves MOTY... If GF wasn't out of town, all of that responsibility of getting SS up and ready for school would have been on her to handle, all while BM enjoys her 5 am gym session. I seriously CANNOT with BM.
