things I hate
Dreading the weekend. I hate the way I’m feeling already. I’m the adult in this situation, right? So why do I feel guilty because I don’t want SD around with her gloom and doom face? She’s the child! She’s the one that should be dreading coming over and dealing with ME!
I hate that when I leave work today and go home she will be there and wont even address me or her sister when I get home. She will totally ignore my BD3 who is her half sister and doesn’t understand why her big sister wont give her a hug or pay attention to her.
I hate that in the car she has to have the radio station of her choosing and sing every song on the radio as if she has the greatest voice in the world (she doesn’t).
I hate that when we go to a restaurant I can’t sit with my own husband because she has major snit fit if she can’t sit next to daddy!
I hate that she feels she can walk into the master bedroom anytime she wants without even knocking and I can't get dressed in my own room without having to look over my shoulder.
I hate that when SD11 is punished she takes it out on her sister BD3. I hate the feeling that I cannot leave them alone because SD might do something to harm BD. (and then just say "sorry - I didn't mean it"
I hate that SD11 has no respect for adults and back talks everyone and GETS AWAY WITH IT. I want to smack that smirk off her face every time.
I hate that SD DEMANDS that we buy her a Halloween costume and when I said “No - not with that attitude, you can just go with your mom to the Halloween store”, she replies with “My mom has done everything and sacrificed everything for me and you all have done nothing for me. The least daddy could do is buy me a costume”. REALLY? - we freakin buy everything for her AND her mom and she feels so entitled its sickening!
I hate that SD11 says that she is the firstborn so therefore she is prettier, smarter and more deserving of daddy’s love than BD3. (then say "just kidding!") She says that BD3 is a brat and she never acted that way when she was her age. Yeah right! SD STILL acts like a spoiled brat (tantrums and all).
I hate it that DH and SD can spend the whole day together alone (father/daughter time without me and BD3) SD will still look at BD3 with disgust the minute DH shows any affection to BD3.
I hate that my DH has to answer the phone every time BM calls because it might be SD calling! BM calls ALL THE TIME. Forget telling her to call only when it’s an emergency because EVERYTHING is an emergency. She cant pay for internet so we cannot communicate by e-mail.
I hate that we are practically supporting BM because she cant keep a job, has no car or driver’s license and would be homeless without us. And don’t say try for full custody because we did and lost! $10,000 down the drain. And we can’t have the mother of his child homeless! (gasp - the horror!)
That’s my vent for this Friday. I know it sounds petty but it feels good to get it out there.
