Skid thinks his biomom is SO GREAT....ughhhh!!!
It really takes everything i've got in me NOT to burst this kid's bubble about his fucked up loser mother.
Background: skid is about to turn 9. has autism and a host of other disabilities/issues (likely from mom's drug abuse while pregnant) he drives me to drink, and he lives with his dad and me and my kids fulltime. Baby Momma hasn't raised him since he was 2, when dad took him away from her because of her drug addiction. Never once since then has she ever even TRIED to get him back, etc. Obviously she don't want him.
That being said, baby momma rears her ugly head usually every few months and calls and asks to see him. I love having a break from him so i'm always like 'hell yeah, come and get em'. She and her boyfriend got into some car accident where they got hit by a city bus. some lawsuit i guess and she was going to get some money. so she started promising the kid all kinds of toys etc. So, she came and got him this weekend, with ALL the toys she promised him! This is the first time she's ever delivered on anything she's ever told him, so fiancee and I were both shocked. So, now of course she is "mother of the year" in his eyes.
Fiancee's been rasing the kid by himself for 7 years with NO child support from her, no nothing other than a few times a year getting him for a weekend. She chose DRUGS over RAISING HER CHILD. And it drives me CRAZY to see how it bothers fiancee that the kid thinks she's so great.
With the Autism and other developmental delays, I don't think he really 'gets it' that his mom is never around, and why doesn't he live with his mom like pretty much all kids do, etc. he doesn't question any of that yet.
Oh, and to top it all off, the kid tells me his mommy told him that he should keep calling me by my first name, and that if he were to call me mommy, she would be really upset!!!!!!!! hahahahah, really? this coming from mom of the year!
ughhh....HAD TO VENT
