SS22 is going to be the end of me!

justmakingthebest's picture

I swear this kid! 

So he recently got his driver's license. He is allowed to drive to and from work (less than 2 miles from our house) and the store (even closer). Other than that he is supposed to get permission and I verify the location, time of day for traffic, ect. He is a TERRIBLE driver and gets overwhelmed very easily. I was really hoping DMV would fail him, but he took the class, took the test and passed it all. Whatever. 

Found SD has a tik tok account

The other day SS10 was online gaming with his friend from school. His friends mic accidentally came through the tv instead of through his mic. DH and I overheard his friend saying to SS 'I saw your sisters latest YouTube video and it got taken down, probably because she was dancing in her underwear, it was super wierd'.  

Alright, whose skid is this?

This was shared on a FB page I follow. If you're wondering why your skid puts in job applications but never gets a call back, he/she might be the proud applicant who submitted the resume below:

SD16.5 Power Sulk. So, we got into it last night.

I was home on a vacation day, and somehow things came up. And she exploded on me. I just sat there listening while she railed on and on.

Things had been quiet and nice relatively.

And then POW.

Her main complaint against me is that I ask her to do her dishes and not let them sit. And that I get upset if she doesnt say hello to me. And get mad if she doesnt clean up after herself which is why she spends 98% of her time in her room. My fault. Im evil SM.

Lets not take them on a cruise while they still hate us.

Ugh. So DH and I have been kicking the idea around of taking a cruise to the Caribbean together.

We haven't taken a vacation in 2 years due to buying the house, so I was excited....until he gave me a dollar figure. It was way too high to be for just the two of us, although the skids almost never come over anymore. I asked why it was so expensive for just the two of us? He said 
"Oh, well I thought SD 16 could come....and maybe SD19? 


Phone wars

Hello all, I could use some advice.

Background: our 13 year old daughter wanted a phone, we didn't think she should have one yet (I know this opinion is rather rare these days, but we live in France and things are a bit different here). The point is, it's something I feel really strongly about.  BM forced DH into mediation about it where they agreed they would wait until June 2023 and make a decision together. We were planning to allow the phone this summer, with a lot of restrictions/oversight. 


SD's progress and updates

NotYourAverageStepMama's picture

There is some good news while SD's report card showed improvement on majority of the areas she was lacking last semester, SD does need to improve on the areas of new information and especially continuing to work on sight words. SD's state testing on reading and math came back. In September SD was "approaching grade K" in 7 areas and only "at grade K" in 3 and now in January she was "approaching grade K" in 2 areas and "at grade K" in 8 areas. It is amazing how SD not being late or missing a day of school this entire school year has made a difference.
