Bio Mom sending kids in small clothes.

[deleted account] ( 5 moms have responded )

So I'm a step mom of two girls. And the youngest is 5 years old and oldest 10.

The Mom is sending youngest in size 2T and 3T. And she is a size 5/6. This is something that just started happening. I had told my husband in front of the oldest that these clothes are to small. And he had texted her about it and she does not respond. Now she sends her in 2T shorts and underwear.
It's like she thinks it's funny I didn't like it or something?
She is also late 10 min picking up the kids at our meeting location everyday. Today she saw me in the parking lot and smirked at me and drove to the opposite end and txted my husband I was not there. And I had been there for 10 min.

My husband and her have been divorced for 4 years. She is also remarried. My husband and I recently had a baby..6 months ago.

I just want to hear if someone has went through this or how I should handle this because honestly I'm blown away and really don't know what to do.

Thanks :)

It is really up to the husband to sort this issue out with the mother of the kids. If you guys can not get her any where with this, go buy the girls some clothing that fits them for just at your place and when they go home send them home in the too small clothing.

Agree w/ Evelyn and Raye (and basically said as much in a duplicate post), but I will add something... My 8 year old son just recently quit wearing a couple of 3T shorts. Yes, they were a bit short (but not horribly so... probably still longer than if they were girl shorts.. and the waist was fine lol), but so is he and they were orange which is his favorite color... so until I managed to find a few pairs of orange shorts in a better size... he refused to get rid of his 3T ones. He has some clothes that are getting a bit too small, some clothes that are still a bit too big, and some clothes that fit him just right. lol ;)

I don't understand the deleted account.

Some parents are not good parents. My step-kids' mom has sent them both home with pants that are too short. She's too cheap to go buy clothes, and so we have to make sure they're dressed appropriately. My SD thought it was great she had "capri's", which in the summer would have been fine but not in February. She wears 10-12's and was sent to us in 8's. She's skinny enough they fit her waist, but they were too damn short.

Regarding the drop-off stuff, sounds like the woman is very petty. I agree with Evelyn that the kids' dad should be dealing with the mother about these issues.

And again a mom deletes an account because she obviously did not like the answers she got or she was hoping that she would be told what she wanted to hear.

maybe just buy some clothes yourself and see what she does when she sees the youngest in proper fitting clothing
