I told SD the reason BM doesn't take her is because she doesn't want to
I did it.. I told SD5 the truth. BM has not seen her in 1 month & has only seen her 1 weekend in the past 2 months. SD told DH yesterday that she misses her mom.
People keep making excuses for BM by telling SD her mom can’t pick her up because her car broke down, or she has to work, or she’s staying at her friend’s house this weekend, blah blah blah. I am sick of it.
BM doesn’t take SD because she doesn’t want to take SD. DH and I are the ones who take care of SD every single day and I am SICK of hearing about BM this and BM that.
All the excuses are lies, and even if they were true, there is NO excuse for not seeing your child. NONE.
So yesterday I blurted it out. I told SD no, the reason your mom doesn’t take you is because she doesn’t want to take you.. It’s not because her car broke down or she has to work; it’s because she doesn’t want to.
SD didn’t even respond. She just walked into the other room. No tears or anything. She just walked away. I felt kind of bad about it, but I don’t think lies and excuses benefit anyone, no matter the age. I think it is better she know the truth.
