Will I Ever Have a Holiday Without This D*mn Kid Around!?
Was just informed by the lovely DH that his Un-Son brat is going to be accompanying us on Christmas at my families house...for the 5th year in a Row. I keep wondering if just once, the Wildebeest would say "no, I'd like some Holiday memories with my child". I mean a picture, a dinner memory, something! But nope, she's perfectly content to send her little Oopsie along with her Ex-Husband who's not his Bio-Father and his StepMom (stupid old me). I would feel awkward to send my kid off to be with some other Woman's family (DH has no family) on major holidays.
I asked him last night if he should offer to let him stay with her this time around since she never has him on holidays. Of course he said "No, this is what happens when kids are in split-up families". I said "no, the parents normally alternate or split the day at least vs sending kid off at 7a every holiday & not seeing him again for days and days". He had no response. She sends him off with us on EVERY Holiday from Christmas all the way to damn Cinco de Mayo. It's enough that he's coming back home with us for the whole week after Christmas. I am just tired of not ever having a holiday without this kid lurking around, wanting, begging, whining.
From the first year we've dated, she sent him at 3 yrs old off with us *and he barely knew me at that time. Then DH sits around catering to and watching him because the brat has burned his bridges with my nieces, nephews and cousins because he brags and is very selfish. So no one plays with him and he has to sit up under (or on) DH and the adults have to whisper, watch our language and such to try to have discussions around his nosy ass. I finally had enough of that on Thanksgiving and sent him out of the main room and into Den with the other kids. Not going to cater my whole family to him!
I'm not fooling with this kid on New Years. If DH wants to be with him, he can do it elsewhere. Would love a family picture without a miscellaneous kid in it... Rant over.
