And the craziness continues
SO's son will be starting kindergarten next month. I guess BM received the list of school supplies needed, and asked SO to purchase everything on the list. He told her he couldn't buy everything, but he would split it 50/50 with her. Well, she did not like this response because she then sent a three page rant to SO. To sum it all up, she basically said: "NO, I'll just buy everything on my own. Just like I buy everything else...the house for him, food, clothes, daycare, health insurance, the after school program...." and it continued. This was clearly meant to get a rise out of SO, and he knew she wanted him to argue back. So instead of stooping to her level, he just responded with "ok". She continued to try to get a rise out of him and when he wouldn't give in she replied, "you are something else".
Let me clear up her accusation from above. She doesn't buy everything for their son. SO splits the cost of daycare with her 50/50, he pays her for a sitter if he is unable to watch him during the work week. He also buys clothes that actually fit their son (since BM will keep dressing SS the same size...even if it's too small/tight, until SO or his mother spends hundreds of dollars on a new wardrobe for him). He also supplies him with food while SS is at our place, as well as medications for when he is ill. He also went out of his way to buy ALL of SS's bedroom supplies when he finally got his own bedroom a few months ago. As for the health insurance...SS is only on BM's because she won't allow SO to claim him on his insurance. I never understood that until now because SO has surprisingly great insurance. I really believe she doesn't allow things like that just so she has something to hold over SO's head whenever she wants to/can't get her way with him.
Oh, and let me not forget to mention the fact that SO and his mother have both given BM $100+ dollars on several occasions because she spent her money on "other things" and was short on her rent. And they have never asked her to pay them back, not once! But of course, none of that matters to her. They are just money machines and designated babysitters when it is convenient for her.
Seriously, how can someone be such a pain in the butt??!
