Favorite HCBM phrases
We had another dramatic exchange with our HCBM and it got me thinking about the favorite phrases from HCBMs.
Some of my favorites:
"The children only feel comfortable telling me what they really feel. They don't feel comfortable talking to you."
"Since you never respond to my emails, I have no choice, but to communicate with you through the children." (This is not in response to any emails that were sent, DH never gets useful emails from BM. This is also from a BM who sent DH a letter from her lawyer demanding he stop communicating with her through the children.)
"If you don't want Skid to do that, then you can just call him and tell him yourself."
"You're just trying to punish / ruin me."
"You're only saying that because you hate me!"
"I can't believe you don't care about your children!"
"You need to tell me what's going on, so I can reassure the children!" This is in response to anything in DH's personal life that has nothing to do with BM. DH can call himself to "reassure" the children, who always tell DH that they do not need reassuring.
