#3 SGK due in a month, no end in sight
My SD (30) only child from H*LL is due to have her third son next month. They have 4 kids already (one being a SD13) DH is on stand by waiting to swoop in to take care of SD and SGK. Oddly enough he tells me she is so tired, overburdened and etc, POOR BABY! He tells me this like I should feel sorry for her and do something. Then DH tells me he asked her this past weekend if that is it, is she going to have more kids? She says "Maybe, I don't know. For sure I don't want to get my tube tied. I would have to take hormone replacements then". HUH???
I think she is pining for a sweet little girl she can treat like her mini me and dote on like the princess she has always been. Never mind that SD is so impatient and crappy with her current children. She has extravagant tastes, MAC make up and MK purses and new car. She needs to "borrow" money from DH for son's glasses, to fix her new car and now oldest GSK has learning issues she never addressed for years and needs private tutoring. She is failing in taking care of the existing children.
She also uses these children as pawns to tug on DH heartstrings. SD is 30 years old and consults her daddy instead of her own DH on most things. It is unhealthy!!! The late night facetiming alone drives me crazy!!! GSK 2 whines, cries and throws fits the entire time. She keeps them up until 11pm and then sleeps until noon the next day. This same SGK 2 is still sleeping in their bed. Ummmm, with a month to go until next child you may want him to start sleeping in his own bed. Lazy parenting. From her Facebook posts you'd think she is so put upon having all these kids one moment with her posts of being exhausted but then the next post is their beaming faces posing for selfies saying Grandpa and Grandma (BM not me) we love you.
So, with 4 kids already in the mix this may keep on going. What happened to having the family size you can afford? DH will have to get a second job or never retire to keep up this charade. It's like supporting another household.
