Being a parent is a tough job and is stressful, as you are aware of since it's happening to you right now! :) But remember when she was young and you were in her shoes? How desperate were you to go out and get some time to yourself?

She never mentioned anything about going out we live 50 min from each other so returning kids fri was easier. She works till 7 in fri so plan was to meet her after work. We made arrangement 11/2 wks ago to do this but she says differently. She told me last nite she wants to F me up!! She has a lot of anger towards me has for many years & no matter what I do do it's not enough...,,

Well, you're responsible, she's not... I don't see why she'd get so mad over something so minor, unless she made plans to go out Friday night.. If your party is at noon, you can return the kids in the morning and be fine and let her have a night out to unwind. It would be a nice thing to do... Just my opinion.

Fight was because I told her I had to return kids tonight bcause we have a party to attend sat at noon. She insisted I said id return them sat morning. My husband responded saying no Shawn we said fri & she exploded. She feels I am never there enough for her, I don't care about them cause I have a busy life. She's done this to me when the 20 year old was young. She doesn't respect me, doesn't like that I want her to sit with me with kids school schedule or her work schedule to let her know when I'm available to watch them. She says oh yeah we have to schedule our time with u... She flies by seat of her pants & I don't.

Was the fight over something to do with the kids? If not, your daughter is a jerk because people shouldn't use their children as a tool to win a fight or get their way.
