Boo hoo hoo
We have SD13 this weekend (even though it’s BM’s weekend) because DH wants to “have her as much as possible.”
I got home from work around 5:30 and SD asks DH if she can go to a football game with her friends tonight. DH doesn’t have a problem with this except that it’s in a neighborhing town at least 30 minutes away (one way). He does have a problem with driving her there.
Nows she’s sulking around the house and trying to work something out because DH is fine with taking her there if someone else can get her home (or vice versa).
Of course she doesn’t see what’s wrong with him taking her (time on the road, we haven’t had dinner, he’s got a big day tomorrow that she’ll be tagging along for, and there’s a ton of construction going on).
”I never get to go to things when I’m here...I don’t want Italian for dinner...Blah blah blah.”
This might sound like typical teenage behavior, but I’m just glad that DH is sticking to his guns and not jumping in the car to take her even though she’s laying on the guilt.
Where’s my popcorn? I feel like this is going to go on all night.
DH feels like sh*t. I told him it’s because SD is making him feel that way because he’s telling her no. He relayed to me that she told him “no one tells me no.” She also proceeded to tell him (I was on the couch around the corner) that he doesn’t know how teenagers communicate now and that they just text each other about getting together. Whatever. I told DH that may be the case but a good parent still wants/needs to know details (which he was trying to do).
After she mumbled more sh*t under her breath, DH got fed up, told her the coach was leaving and he didn’t care if anyone was there to pick her up. Maybe not a great thing to say, but I get where he’s coming from. She whined some more about about not getting a shower and not having shampoo. Ya know what, Princess? You got home and fell asleep for over an hour and before that when you and your dad were at the store, you didn’t mention that you needed shampoo. Sorry bout ya! Byeeee!
