I typed out the whole story, but it disappeared. Suffice it to say, BM lost control of what goes on at our house so she called CPS. An investigator came out yesterday and found her complaint unfounded. However, a question the investigator asked was "have you been a victim of abuse?" My DH said "well actually, the kids mom was both verbally any physically abusive while we were married. I have the pictures and report numbers".
Bwah ha ha! Now SHE is being investigated and she works at an elementary school.
Karma... Got to love her.
I have been with my DH for five years, married for one. He has two kids, SD7 and SS9, who have been growing up with me in their lives.
I am not a kid person, never have been. I never planned to have any children of my own, but was very happy to have these two little ones in my life regardless. My DH parents them in every way; I am not expected to unless I want to or need to. I had always been another adult who loves them and has fun with them. I was always one to plan things to do together, play games, do crafts, etc.
