Anyone been pushed to the limit?
Well, SS finally pushed me too far and I let lose on DH. He broke something in my house that should have been avoided. He has been told over and over not to do a certain something and he just continued until he finally broke it. I was livid! DH was livid, but I finally told DH a lot of what was bottled up over the last several months. I have been disengaged, but SS is jerking around with the house stuff now. He listens to nothing!
DH was sympathetic to my feeling and said he understood and he would fix it, he said he is not sure how he let SS get so out of hand and he did not want it affecting me or our marriage! Awww good DH right?! HA!
He took SS out in the yard for about 5 minutes and they walked back in laughing. ARRRGGGG!!! I have seen this before if DH gets on him. DH starts out good and then freaks out and feels bad and starts making jokes to make SS laugh. I wanted to puke. I told DH that was sick and I went to bed. The next morning I get up and SS had made a huge mess in the kitchen and did not clean it up. That is a big no no in my house. I went livid again. BUT …..
I told DH, that was it, I let him handle all this mess with SS up until now, and he has f’ed it all up because he is so scared of SS. DH knows I am disengaged, BUT, I told him I was getting on SS ass next time he does anything stupid in my house. If he overloads the washer one more time, he will not be allowed to use it and will have to go to washateria. If he makes a mess and does not clean it up, he will not be allowed in kitchen after we are in bed. ECT, ECT ECT.
I told him that I was sick of a 17 year old running my house. I told him that SS is 17 and not a mentally handicapped 5 year old like DH treats him. I mean it, I am about to become the evil step mom!! Insert evil laugh here!!!
I could give a rats patoot if he fails school or comes in hours late, or whatever, but if he dis respect my house one more time, I will let loose on that boy like no bodies business. DH actually seemed to like the idea and that made me even madder. Why can’ HE step up and parent his own freaking kid!!!!!! And I don’t think he will like it the first time I freak on SS, but too damn bad. Bring it on big boy. I have had it.
