SM getting ignored at family events - Different perspectives

Petronella's picture

So I was reading a blog from a couple years ago (got there from the post history of one of today's new blogs). It's on a common topic - a new SM's relationship with her adult stepchildren and how much to expect. But a couple of the comments went off on a tangent and got me thinking. Blog is here:

Monthly Child Support Countdown - Holiday Edition!

Sorry folks I missed Dec 1st as was too busy putting up Christmas decorations! But I did remind DH to be sure to send whatshername the December Child Support that day. He told me to remind him again at 11:59 pm that night, LOL ! 

Actually, since the skid in question is now 18 and we have been informed by said skid, that she is now AN ADULT, I am now referring to this monthly handout as Adult Support. AS. Has a nice ring to it! 

Anyway, there are now only ELEVEN (11) AS payments left for us! eeee getting so close!

Here is a fun countdown that I am trying to make into a ST tradition, LOL.

It's the First of the Month and we know what that means!!! Yes, the Child Support payment to the sainted Custodial Parent is due! FOR THE CHILLLDREENNNNNN

After today's payment, my DH has exactly TWELVE (12) more payments left! Yes, November is the Birthday Month to end all Birthday Months! 

Exactly 1 year from today, DH can send off the last payment to whats-her-name. I suggested that he write in the Comments field or Memo line: "ADIOS" or maybe "GOOM BYE!"

Why does every blog I love get DELETED??

Hi all, I'm more a commenter than a blogger, but thought this might be a fun exercise for whoever wants to join in!

It's the First of the Month and we know what that means!!! Yes, the Child Support payment to the sainted Custodial Parent is due! FOR THE CHILLLDREENNNNNN

Is anyone here close to the finish line? We are! After today's payment, my DH will need to do this a mere THIRTEEN (13) more times!

Ridiculous blended Christmas

Where even to begin. My SD20 turned up for late Xmas dinner tonight with a present for her dad but nothing for me. This actually surprised me, she had managed to remember me last year. How quickly they forget, I guess. This after I’d put up with my SOs other two kids at Christmas, and hadn’t had my own family around; my own daughter went to her dad’s. Feeling crappy tonight. I planned and contributed to and wrapped SD’s presents from both of us. And cooked a nice dinner. I wish she would go on back to Mommy’s house and leave me alone.
