Shirts we need to order for next years Fathers Day
So after reading SMto2's blog, Crr18's blog and my own experience this past weekend I think most of us stepmoms on here should order tshirts that say "I will not be you emotional punching bag!!" and wear it the entire weekend.
Of course this happens at other times throughout the year but I really feel like Father's Day brings to the surface how disappointed these men are with their children and they end up taking it out on us.
Some details about what set DH off this past weekend include:
Saturday night as soon as we all sat down at the restaurant DH's brother was asking SD17 when they were moving (BM is renting a townhouse close by and selling her house). SD said that they were going to start moving in the first weekend in July. So DH's brother says "Oh so she sold the house". To which SD says "No but shes not worried. The house is paid in full so she doesnt have to worry about paying the mortgage". Of course DH didnt like hearing that. He has been giving her $1000's and $1,000's of dollars a month so basically he paid off her mortgage. Plus he found out she is selling it for $550,000!!! She will be making a huge profit!
Then SD went on to talk about her "educational plans". She is going to a dental assistant program starting in September 2 nights a week for 3 months and that's it. Then starting January 2023 she will be start working fulltime for bascailly jsut a bit above minimum wage. 'm sorry but there si no way he is proud of what she is doing. Wether he says it out loud or not.
Then he was upset that SD was planning on comng here Sunday (he thought just like I did that we were celebrating Fathers Day with her Saturday and we had made plans for Sunday. Of course he couldnt say he didnt want to see her. And then he was annoyed that SD spent most of the day with her boyfiend and his family becuase he had wanted to do lunch with her instead of dinner. Hmm here's a thought - try making plans more than an hour beforeh and and maybe you could have done lunch!
Then she came over here with a lame gift that she couldn't even bother to wrap.
But what happened Monday morning as I was trying to calmly talk to him about why he blew up at me about a chair the night before? Yup!!! You guessed it if you have been reading my blogs - I get the tirade "You have a problem with my daughter " and " I need to decide if I can be happy when his daughter is here".
