BM does it again!
Ok so my blogs are basically venting about BM. But seriously I have one of the worst BMs to deal with.
So it was a long weekend just gone and we had the skids as it was DH week. No school Monday so that means BM has to collect SD from our house.
All day - no correspondence from BM. Just same old sh*t DH deals with. Unless he texts her first.. no idea what time she will rock up. Usually it's later in the arvo. With DH home I honestly didn't care and never gave it a second thought. FIL came over and hung out while watching the game on T.V. I sat in my room studying. I had an assessment due so I had a nice quiet day.
Got to around 5.30 at night when FIL left I asked DH.. where is BM?! Have you heard? He shrugged and said nope so I'll feed SD dinner and assume she's not coming.
SD was asking through the day what time she was getting picked up and DH told her no idea, haven't heard.
Then 2 mins later we got the text. 'Ohhh I'm so sorry I forgot today was Monday and thought it was Sunday. Are you alright to have SD tonight?' Omg..
Now BM is single which means she's been a loose cannon. SS told us last weekend at hers he was left home alone at night while she got drunk at DH local sports club. DH was furious. SS had no point of communication to call anyone incase of emergency and at 10 years old he was just not mature enough to stay home alone. SS got defensive and blamed his uncle who lives there too that he was supposed to stay home with him but apparently left to go out as he had already made plans. DH educated SS saying it's not his uncle's responsibility it's BMs. She's his mother.
So DH went off at BM and confronted her with that weekend, said she better sharpen up as a parent as now it's not looking good on her as now she's 'forgotten' what day of the week' it is to pick up her child. Of course he got defensive and abusive texts back where she is the victim, how dare he treat the mother of his kids (well excuse me one of the mothers!) and whoever he got his info from didn't have the facts straight. Well the info was from SS and when he told her that and if she was actually going to pick up SD tonight, got more abuse back. It is so obvious she has been drinking hence why she can't get her, and said I'll pick SD up from school tomorrow.
Lol, well BM you won't as it is a student free day if you bother to know what's going on. So DH replied with 'No, I'll drop BOTH ss and Sd to you to yours in the morning on the way to my job as they have a student free day.' And got no response.
DH was honest with both the skids about how irresponsible she has been with them to try and educate them on what a parents role actually is, and they were so defensive of her as she tries to PAS's them out and make herself look the victim all the time. I stayed out of it and went back to my bedroom, as DH was dealing with it. But omg.. how hard is it to be a mature human being and pick your child up on your day?? I heard SD say 'You were right SS.. she forgot about me'. I just think it's so sad how she treats her own children.
