Just when I thought she couldn’t be any more evil...
So today apparently is BM’s birthday. Instead of saying anything to DH (who lets face it barely remembers his own birthday) or me about it. She spent all morning telling SS10 about it and how he was going to stay with her this weekend! Couple of problems with that:
1. It’s our CO weekend. We stopped switching a while ago because it got to be too much of it going on and it affected his behavior.
2. BM didn’t mention to either one of us (DH or me)that she wanted SS10 to stay for her birthday.
She he didn’t mention this to me when I spoke to her at 5 something this morning reminding her to put a note for me to pick him up from school. As a matter of fact, she said she had already put note in bookbag.
So I get to the school and he’s pouting. I ask what’s wrong several times and he finally says(after several “Im just tired” but I knew it was more than that) “my mom told me I was going to spend the weekend with her.” Well Ss, it’s daddy's weekend; is there any particular reason you don’t want to visit with us? “It’s my mom's birthday.” Ok, would you like to go see her...
long story short I end up waiting by her apartment 20 minutes for her to get there so he can say happy birthday. In the most of him standing there, she continues to walk off. What kind of mother does that??????? So then I have to explain to him that we are not trying to keep him from his mom but that we simply didn’t know today was her birthday. I’m guessing this is the beginning of PAS for her because she surely tried to turn him against us with this foolishness today!!!
Today is is her birthday so I’m not gonna say anything today but come Sunday she’s gonna get an eyeful of a text. Gonna make sure she knows that we know what she said and that PA and manipulating a 10 yo coupled with those grades he has is gonna make for an easy court decision next time around. Nip it in the bud before it even gets started.
