Bio father won't stand up to his ex
Where do I even start, to give a bit of background my husband and I have been married for two years. We have one daughter and he has one 7 year old some with his ex. We have my step son two-three nights a week and every other weekend. It actually usually works out that we have him at our house more than he is at his mothers. We pay full child support and split medical bills as well as bday parties, etc. I could go on and on about finances but won't. The reason for my post is to ask your opinion and see if others have this issue. I am around my step son just as much if not more than his mother and father. The other day the school called and told me that he fell in PE and busted his head open and they couldn't get his dad to answer the phone (he didn't have service where he was working that day). Of course I went to get him and ran him to the clinic. The cut wasn't bad. They glued it and back to school we went. I told Step son to call his mom on the way back to school to tell her what happened. Long story short somehow I am in the wrong she calls fussing bc I took him to the clinic. She is the one that put me down on his sign out sheet. My husband will never say anything to her when she calls and disrespects me. Also with his switching back and fourth so much she ended up with a bunch of his clothes from our house and she never returns them which leaves us buying more clothes. He never says anything to her. I'm just at my wits end. I'm tired of a) loving her son and taking care of him as if he were my own only to be disrespected. tired of struggling financially only to give her everything when we support him daily anyway. C) I'm tired of my husband not standing up to her. Can someone please give me advice if you have been in this situation. Please.
