So we cancelled on SD this weekend just gone. We had work and plans with friends, said we'd pick up during the week as extra (as it's half term) and have her 2 days at the weekend (so already extra to what we're supposed to). All hell broke loose.
BM posted on Facebook a photo of SD crying with a tagline of "this is what happens every weekend when deadbeat dad doesn't show". Lies. Lies. Lies. We have her every weekend. We wanted to REARRANGE this one. Everyone knows how full on a dad he is. Normally.
OH's mother and sister gave OH abuse down the phone saying his daughter always comes first. Work isn't important. If you can't get a job Mon-fri then don't get a job as your kids come first. Tracked us on social media to find where we are at specific times to have a go why we haven't got her.
It's ridiculous. His mum hasn't spoke to him since without arguing, BM is threatening court and saying he's not getting his daughter anytime soon, everyone's having a go at us and interfering. Until this afternoon. When BM has suddenly decided he could have his daughter this weekend. Because it's convenient for her.
I'm fuming at BM for playing my OH like a puppet, for trying to paint the wrong picture, overreacting and trying to undermine us by going to his mother. I'm fuming at his mother for siding with BM, for interfering all the time and telling us how to live our life, for treating her like an absolute princess etc etc. And I'm slightly annoyed at my OH for allowing it all to happen just because he's had enough of the arguing and just wants to see his daughter.
Earlier in the week he stood by everything he did/we did/I said and had actually calmed down with his Disney parenting which really reassured me of a future that he was listening to me more and listening to his mother less. We'd even spoke about moving out of town so he didn't have his mother interfering and wanted to get his daughter one day a week instead of 2/3 but have it set in stone so no one would be let down.
It's all just been too much this week and I'm lost at what to do now. Thankfully me and him have been great for a few weeks now, but he's been suffering mentally so I've had to help him a lot and put a lot of issues on the back burner. Just want an easy life!!
