I really REALLY dislike this woman. I know many of you understand. I'll also say I know there are some great BM's out there -- I just didn't get stuck with one.
Anyway, not only did she hand over her 11 year old to us last week wtih a three day long 103 degree fever ("what?" she said, "I thought it was allergies...")
but now she refuses to pay her phone bill cuz she has no money. She uses all my husbands child support money. She doesn't work.
Anyway, today, the oldest, the 11 year old, got konked on the head with a bowling ball at gym class and the school nurse called me because BM's phone isn't working YET AGAIN.
That just gets me so much.... one of the kids could get hit by a car and she wouldn't be able to know!! It infuriates me.
You know what else? She hurt her back and is now on disability, or will be on it... so she's not working. Well, my husband and I got day care assistance for my youngest step-son (3) for the week WE have him, but because BM isn't working, she can't get assistance for HER week and this great montesssori school we found (and every other day care we found) can't just have him every other week. It's understandable.
The director of this school is going to try to work out a scholarship for us.... cross fingers.... but what most of this comes down to is that BM can't get her sh** together. And never has.
My husband said he could go to court and say that WE have in place a day care option that needs to be taken... and can give BM 2 months to find a job and they can mandate her to find a job. otherwise she just sits on her ass and sends the kids downstairs to the "accredited babysitter" who is domestically violent and a horrible place to send kids.
God I'm frustrated.
Commiserating would be great....
