Anyone else see video games as a blessing in disguise
So think of me of evil but when Step brat13 became interested in Video games I was overjoyed. Why? Because up intill that point SS13 was not only up DH ass 24/7 wanting to be entertained/attention , Extremely rude to me and super annoying loud screaming through the house chasing the dogs. SS is still rude but at least now he’s Engrossed with video games on his phone so I can Actually have a conversation with DH without SS getting jealous and interrupting me Constantly and the screaming running through the house is less.
Honestly I wish the little monster would spend the whole time on his phone paying games but I’ll settle for 4-6 hours a day.
Of course BM complains at SS’s therapy appointment that he plays video games. BM has NO life so she’s a Classic helicopter parent and wants to Create this perfect little world for her perfect little angel. BM always bitches about SS “Social growth” as she calls it. She wants him to have lots of perfect friends and wonderful experience and this does NOT include video games. Luckily SS is a spoiled brat and listens to no one and does what he wants.
So my situation may not be perfect BUT it is better. Here we are almost half way through the weekend and SS just now is looking for daddy to entertain him. I was able to have coffee this morning with DH and do some yard work together without Step brat complaining daddy was not giving him Undivided attention.
So LOVING this new found freedom and hope it lasts!
