Is this crazy?
So my husband and I have his boys half the time on a week on/week off basis. The house they live in with their mom, is around the corner from the 10 year olds school. The older one (13) started high school this year and it's quite far, plus a lot earlier than the younger child's. So my fiance had asked if he could drop off the younger one at the house on his way back from dropping off the older one, so he can just walk to school, instead of waiting around for an hour before he can get to work himself. The step father said that it is his week and his responsibility, and that they don't want the younger one there because he wakes the step dad up when he comes in. They have now told us that the younger boy is not allowed at the house when it isn't their week. Am I crazy for thinking this is absolutely ridiculous? For myself, I think that either home is the boys home whether or not it's our week or theirs. They ask for the older boy to come extra time to their place on our week and keep him longer after his football games as well as over night, but they don't do that for the younger boy. Is this normal? I am not a fan of being unable to say anything, because I have a lot to say to them, but don't want to cause a stressful situation for my husband. But I truly think this is so wrong on so many levels...it's their home no matter what. If tables were turned and they needed to drop off the boys at our place, that would never even be an issue. Am I overreacting about this?
