BM Having a Bad Day?
When I got home from work yesterday FDH told me about this. I hope BM was just having a bad day, and that this isn't the beginning of anything...
Yesterday morning BM called FDH to ask if he could watch FSD8 while BM went to class (apparently she's taking some courses). She wanted FDH to watch her because she said that FSD is sick--and for some reason she doesn't like the sitter to watch the kids when they're sick. Anyway, she wanted FDH to watch her from 5pm-9pm. FDH and I just went on a trip for which he already missed 2 days of work. As a result, he's totally backed up and has been staying a little later on the job. As far as I know, BM doesn't know about any of that. So, what FDH said was that he would call her back later and let her know how his schedule was looking. Come 4:45pm he's still working and doesn't hear his phone ring. She leaves a voicemail saying "Fine, f--k you, I'll stay home and miss my class." I asked FDH if he talked to FSD to see how sick she was. He said he did talk to her and she sounded a little under the weather, but FSD was herself saying that she was fine (she's kinda like her dad and doesn't like to admit that she's sick unless it's really bad). We already know that BM is a bit of a hypochondriac.
We have yet to have any major problems with BM. I'm hoping that she was just having a bad day and maybe looking for a scapegoat--who knows, maybe she was looking for a reason to miss class? We've never had the kids during her classes, so it was an odd call. I don't know. I just hope this was not a sign of things to come. Especially with the holidays coming up, we don't want any drama.
