Letting Skids take things home with them
How many of you let Skids take big things you've bought home with them?
This weekend, SKids told DH they were going to take their skis and ski gear home with them, so BM could take them skiing. I said no way because they can't even keep track of the ski gear when it's at our home. If it went to BM's house, we'd never see it again.
Also, BM spent last year and the year before telling DH how much Skids "hated skiing" because she didn't want to pay for it.
Three years ago, before skiing, but when we were going to DH's family cabin where there would be snow, DH asked if SKids could bring some snow gear. BM's response, "it's not my responsibility to buy winter coats so they can play out in the snow with you!" Mind you, while winters where we are, are relatively minor, there are usually several weeks to a month where you do need a winter coat if you're going to be spending more than 10 seconds outside.
