Anyone not want to celebrate holidays and birthdays because of step family drama?
H and I were having a discussion about my daughters 3rd birthday and what we were going to do. I flat out told him I didn’t want to have a party. I understand this I shouldn’t deprive my daughter of a birthday party and will probably still have one but what comes along with it just winds up becoming some kind of drama or ruining of the day. My sons 4th birthday was ridiculous. BM must have called and text my H 4 times the day of and during his party. My father in law was fighting with my H because he wanted to keep SD Sunday night and BM wanted her to go to a play date. Then later on we have cake at the house SD misbehaves I say something to her then I have to sit there while my inlaws give me dirty looks for reprimanding her. My friends and my own family witnessed me stressed out and pissed off. Something like this happens at every party we throw. Sadly a day that wa supposed to be about my son turns into a day fighting over SD and me being looked at as the wicked one. I just wanted to get you guys take on this and if you experience similar things to this. That special occasions become something else and you can’t even enjoy it.
