BM threatens DH with contempt then calls me for the first time?!
I posted earlier about the letter from BM's attorney demanding back child support. This guy really laid it on thick, saying the court would throw DH is jail etc etc. DH has been paying for nearly 10 years, never missed a month! And he has SD13 half the time! And BM doesn't work! She's claiming the court made a mistake on the filing and that DH owes her $78K. DH's attorney says she doesn't have a case. It's all very out of the blue and stressful.
Thing is, just a week ago we were just at SD's debate finals, DH and BM talking together, being friendly etc. Of course BM didn't acknowledge that I exist, didn't even look my way even though I was standing right there and I've been SD's stepmom for many years. That's okay. Who cares.
Here's the really weird part. Yesterday, BM called me! For the first time ever. She didn't actually call, she dialed directly and left a message so my phone wouldn't ring. Just as well. She sounded friendly she had this singsong quality to her voice. It was odd. She said that she knew I was taking SD in for a haircut this weekend and that she hopes I'll respect her wishes "as SD's momma" and not let SD get it trimmed more than half an inch.
Number one, lady why are you calling me when you have threatened my husband with jail? Needless to say, there's been no contact between BM and DH since he received the letter, and I won't respond to her voicemail. Number two, why are you calling me at all? About a haircut? Isn't SD old enough to decide if she wants half an inch or two inches or whatever cut off her own hair? And why are you intruding into DH's parenting time? You parent on your time, he parents on his. WHy is this so hard for you to understand? Are you nervous that maybe you made a big mistake with that threatening letter and now you're afraid to check in with DH so you decide after all these years to contact me? To test the waters because you messed up. What's wrong with you?
