School Shopping, QT with Kids, and Disengaging....
So a few days ago, I had a pleasant day with my bios, shopping for new school outfits (4 each), a nice lunch, and just good quality time with them. It's a tradition for us to do this. I specifically did it when the SD wasn't home, as I wasn't taking her with. It's easier, if you know what I mean.
So last night, my YDD was getting her school picture outfit out and ready when SD asked if she got a new or first day of school outfit. I said no. My SO pipes up to say that he is taking her for that. She asked me, "well how many outfits did (the bios) get? I was vague, as it's not a competition. She then asks SO, "How many do I get?" He informs her that she will get one or two, depending on what they find. My youngest child put us in a very strange position because they actually have 4 new outfits. OH---the look of death was directed at me by SD. I simply explained that it is her FATHER'S job to buy her clothing, shoes, and anything else she may need.
If I haven't mentioned this before in previous blogs, I used to buy her clothing up until I realized that she wore NOTHING that I had spent my hard earned money on. Then came disengagement. So NO SD, I won't be buying you anything, and I don't see anything wrong with that. And guess what???? SO has some manly things he would like to care of this weekend, and he knows that he will be taking SD with him...I'm going to the local consignment store to shop for my oldest bio!!!!! I can't wait to see the look of death yet again! Yes, I can be evil, but after wasting all of that money on clothes that she never wore, I don't give a POOP!
