Is BM getting less clingy?
Or is this just an experimental situation? That is the question.
So after our last weekend of calling the kids on their cells constantly. To the point of waking one of the girls up Sunday. Yea that was fun. DH actually finally grew a pair and asked for some courtesy during our time. Meaning the kids should be spending their time with him well- with him. Not calling her because she asked them to.
To preface my husband went on a business trip last Sunday returning Wednesday. Before that he was very sick and we decided not to have the kids over since they left as we didn't want to get them sick. Basically it's been nearly two weeks since the kids got to see their dad and BM got any alone time with her "surfer instructor"
Since the kids came over there has not been a single call or text. The kids and DH went to the beach over an hour ago and I poked their phones and no new texts or calls.
A. Being optimistic she's learned boundaries are a thing. It got so bad 4th of July weekend that the kids spent something like 4 hours on the phone in total. FaceTime. Our house is small so DH and I would go on the small porch. Then BM tried to use "oh well I call so much because they are lonely ". Child . Catcher. We are on the porch because we are trying to give ourselves and the kids privacy
B. She honestly needed the private time and will go back into non sense BS once she's had some grown up girl bonding time with whatever her fling is labeled.
Place your bets. I'm going B. Because I'll guess by 9 or so tonight she'll have texted the kids. She asks a barely 6 and a 8 year old to keep their phones everywhere with them which is ... Very stupid? In certain situations like the beach where they are now or the park it's possible to destroy a smart phone. She's a gem that BM.
