What happened to me not being Welcoming????
I clearly remember the step kids getting pissy and turning down DH's invitation to come over on Easter because they didn't feel welcomed. Saying "others have implied it" meaning me of course. Now SS called this morning asking what the plan was for DH's birthday. I let it go to voicemail thank god!
No way I'm planning and paying for a dinner. I'm not "welcoming" enough for them so they can do their own thing and pay for it on their own! DH and I already have plans to get a hotel room on his birthday and spend it in my hometown which his children live near. The day after his birthday is my little sister's wedding shower so DH planned to go hang out with my BIL while me and my older sister go to the shower. Would have been perfect time for DH to plan to see his kids but I'm not going to mention that! Not my job to plan that for him anymore!!!! I'm leaving that all up to him and them now!
