do all BM's call to whine about stepmom's to their EX?
I am so sick of this.
SS9 has been at Darth Vader's house for four days. I text him once a day in the evening "we miss you" or "we love you" or "hey pookie poo" (He just LOVES that last one, lol.)
So he never usually texts me back. That's fine. I understand he's busy with his MOM and what not. Cool.
Fourth day (today), he texted me back. I got all excited and said hey back, and then, can you call us? US (MEANING, ME, HIS DAD AND HIS LITTLE SISTER).
He calls, he's on speaker phone almost the whole time to talk to all of us, the conversation is probably 2 minutes, tops. (I did notice and say something lovingly, oh honey are you sick? you sound sick? The kid was yawning and clearly congested/coughing/sneezing ALL IN 2 MINUTES). He said, yeah, it's just my allergies. This started the day he left us and I had thought maybe it was allergies at first and knew it wasn't when the zyrtec didn't touch it, but he was going with his dear old mom. What was I going to do? Tell her what he should take and measure it all out in oral medicine syringes like she did for us when he had bronchitis when WE finally kept him home from school and sports because he had FEVER?!. Sorry. Tangent. Point is, at this point, there's no way it's "just allergies". Poor kid.
So as soon as he hangs up, Darth Vader is calling DH with "I thought we discussed this Step-Mom texting SS9 all the time, he wasn't even gone 10 minutes and she was already texting him." I said "we miss you", my DD2 has a very hard time saying goodbye to her older brother she just adores and doesn't really get why he's leaving in the first place. Did he text back? Nope, she probably wouldn't let him. Did I text again or call (LIKE SHE DOES?!?!)? nope. left him the **** alone! Just wanted him to at least KNOW we missed him already.
Does DH stand up to her and tell her to "get over it" like he tells me she should? nope. His words to her "I get ya, I hear ya, ok, mmmhmm, etc. etc."
