sick skids... vent
Truly just a vent but does BM text your SO/DH/FDH when the kids get sick,.. do something exciting or just for the most unnecessary crap ever?!
Despite SO having got into a very regular routine of only contacting BM on exchange days via email BM has texted him twice in the last 4 days to let him know when SS/SD got sick and exactly what they where doing to make her think they where sick. Then last week she phoned him he ignored it then she called me (we where on the phone together). SO asked me to answer since we thought something was serious wrong... BM wanted to know where SD's goggles where for swimming. ARE YOU SERIOUS!?! Then was very clear that SD HAD to have them for her next swimming lesson and could we organize a time/place for me to drop them off.
This btw is the same woman who has done nothing but make it clear that she wants me to "stay out of her life". Then proceeded to email me 4 times in the last week about things left at our house that she could easily replace.
I am truly beginning to think that BM has a mental disorder. Every month or so she somehow goes on either a kick of "stay out of my life" or has a month of contacting SO or myself every 3 days. In fact on her last "stay out of my life kick I actually snapped and informed her that would be easy if she could refrain from contacting this family every 3 days. Now, that was not the right thing to do at all and a very weak moment on my part. Ever since that last episode though I have disengaged but caught myself being involved when BM emailed me asking about stuff left at the house. SO works away so it is difficult for him to deal with it. I now wish I had just relayed through him but I am sure that as well would have pissed BM off..
Anyways I got a little off topic... I feel like maybe I am over reacting about the kids being sick and texting. In the same notion I don't see why SO needs to be aware... Frustrated!
