Toxic BM’s Birthday
So every year I have been in my relationship with DH we have had the skids on BM's birthday. She never makes a time to see them, she just expects a phone call. DH has previously told her he has no issue with her taking them out for the day or even having them that night. He would want to do that if his birthday fell on her day. It's typical that she just wants to drink and party without making time for her kids to see her though. Now the skids are getting a bit older, the way they talk to her on the phone now is hilarious. BM has a brain of a 15 year old school girl.
Anyway DH tucked the skids into bed and I walked into SD's room. She was in bed, and I quietly asked DH if he made the call yet? And he literally blinked at me and asked me 'what call?' Omg. Are all men like this? I whispered 'To their mother for her birthday??' And he was like 'oh I forgot!' He quickly told them and they both went 'ohh yeah! We have to call her'. I was thinking about this stupid phone call ALL DAY. I hate any contact with this Ho Bag of a 'mummy' she calls her self.
DH and I walked out of the room and let the skids talk to her. We did stand in the hall so we can hear what the conversation was, but the skids didn't know we were there. She was at the pub for dinner apparently. SD6 said 'Mummy, because we aren't there to celebrate with you tonight, can we celebrate with you tomorrow?' Haha she sounded so awkward and was like 'Oh.. yeah. If you want. What do you want to do?' And the skids were like 'Uum.. I don't know maybe the bouncing place?' She's like 'Nah we can't go there it's shut because of Covid' and the conversation sort of died..
I looked at DH and we both rolled our eyes. Then SS told her he thought her birthday was tomorrow and she sounded so offended he didn't know her birthday! Haha. SS remembers EVERYTHING. His brain is like DH's and retains so much information. Then, like every year, we hear the million dollar question from her 'So who remembered to call me for my birthday?'
SS immediately started to say Daddy but SD interrupted and was like 'No no it wasn't Daddy! Floral was in my room with Daddy and I overheard her remind Daddy to call you! It was Floral that told him!' I swear we could hear crickets on the other end. DH and I were trying so hard not to laugh! She ended up being like 'oh. Well I have to go..' Lol. Oh wow, she would have been so annoyed. Her ex forgot her birthday and his wife had to remind him and her children to ring her. Lol. We didn't expect SD to say that, but it shows how she watches everything we do.
All day I was dreading that call and it ended up being so embarrassing for her! It just shows she doesn't spend any quality time with the skids. The conversation was so awkward and laughable.
