Updates - I wish they would suck up to me like they do to BM
My told my DH to work things out with his family and if they want to make plans with me then they need to talk to me. Right after that my SIL reached out, she still hasn't planned anything. She just told me she has been talking to BM and "I get to get SD for the weekend" and she wants the whole family to meet up at the beach or a park for her birthday (SIL's).
Well without clear dates and times I'm going to plan fun stuff for my kids and not wait around to be told when to show up with my kids for my SILs birthday photo op. Knowing their lazy butts they won't make it to the beach until after noon when it's sweltering hot. It's projected to be in the 90s and humid all week.
In other news my DH usually gives me a play by play of his entire conversations with BM after they happen. I appreciate the full disclosure but I don't need to hear everything he said and her reactions especially when he says she laughs or gives him compliments about what he does with SD. Yesterday I had to tell him to shut up I don't really want to hear about it. His account was probably exaggerated towards positivity but even if it isn't it's like why do you think I want to hear about this? It was almost like he was bragging about gaining BM's approval. I guess if for years somebody tells you that you're a horrible husband and father when they compliment you it would make you happy? It was also very interesting timing because she knows he would not be able to see SD this upcoming weekend when she's with SIL but apparently BM was giving him tons of praise about how he's a great father.
I don't trust BM and honestly I think it was probably a manipulation because in the next breath she said that she had to get SD a new phone and I think she was angling for him to help her pay for it. DH denied that and went on to being on cloud nine from receiving praise from BM. Bleh.
