What game is BM playing at?

futurestepmomnowstepgf's picture

When my bf and BM agreed and laid everything out, my bf and I were under the impression that BM was to sign the papers first since her attorney was the one who was typing up the PSA to then be made into a CO and divorce decree. We were wrong and bf had to sign them first, which he did last Monday. Bf had not heard anything back from his attorney since then so today he connected him asking for an update and his lawyer says he has left several messages with her attorney and has heard nothing back. We are absolutely furious. What game is BM playing at?

Waiting for the knife in the back

SM12's picture

It’s so sad how whenever BM does a nice or the right thing, we sit back and wait for the knife to come get us in the back.   Because no good deed goes unpunished.

Accodring to DH/ BM divorce decree, they alternate kids for taxes.  One year DH claims one and The next year he claims two of the kids.   And EVERY single year she has found a way to screw us.  It’s to the point we actually try to guess how she Screw us over taxes. 

Now that OSS is an adult and MSS will not quality for child tax credit, we expected yet again to get shafted. 

New here/Not a Step Parent

Chance3312's picture

Hey guys. I'm new here and I'm not a Step parent. However, my wife is and she's the main reason I joined this page. She's constantly saying I don't understand how she feels, and she's right. I'm hoping that I can get some insight to what she's going through and how to handle these situations in the kindest yet most fair ways possible. It's hard being a parent to children from different women with two completely different parenting styles. And when my wife and ex can't coexist, that's even harder.


OT - the Pennys are moving....

Yesterday's blog:

Met my friend for dinner last night and got the new poop.

Penny and Mr. Penny are selling their trailor in Arizona and moving to...







Let's hope they do some facking research. Any bets on how long it will be before they scurry back across the border? Gads.

Cautiously optimistic, for now.

SO and I had a good, long talk about my ultimatum last night. Really positive. I paraphrased some of the feedback you guys gave and I think it put things into perspective for him some. I felt really heard when I told him that I can't continue in a relationship where I have to blow up in order to get my point to sink in. I also told him that I've done a lot of work to understand his family, step families in general, parenting in general, all of it, and that by not doing the same due diligence, he's putting an unfair share of the emotional labor on me. 

No mention of SD19..thank you Jesus!!

notsobrady's picture bioS19  was home when I got in yesterday. Saw the Valentine chocolates on the table and asked where they came from. I told him SD19 came by to visit and drop of DH's Christmas gift and she brought the chocolates as well. He asked how that I briefly gave him a summary. He said "Did she tell you what she did on New Years Eve?" I said No, why...

He saw on Roomie's snapchat pictures of SD19 and roomie and a handful of guys all smoking weed and drinking.  

Not a shocker.

So I've kept this info to myself.

Should I tell what BS19 saw or let it go?

Skid free home finally

Chmmy's picture

My home will be skid free soon. They are leaving for school all of them. Its been probably a week since there were no skids in the house. SD20 is in college so she doesn't have class every day.  Ss11 stayed home with the sniffles yesterday. I was about to lose my mind. Finally today they are all gone. It may only be for the school day but its such a relief to have them all gone.  I still hear sd17 in her room making noise but Im sure shes leaving any minute and that skid weight will be off my shoulders.

PS my husband is gone too  :  ))

Here we go...

Yay I have enjoyed the quiet since the chaos at Christmas (story in my first blog post). Skids haven't really been around, choosing to spend time with friends and other family instead. W2s are rolling out... it's DH year to claim the kids. As I stated in a previous blog every time it's our turn DH is bombarded with requests to pay for all sorts of things that the kids want. DH just got a text last night from CrazyLady (BM) that one of the kids will be calling him this afternoon... I'm sure it's to ask for something that she doesn't want to pay for.
