what do I do.....when the BM {birth mom} runs over everything I do? I have been a step mom to 2 girls for almost 5yrs now and still-everything I do-she has to outdo by about 10miles. we got my 9yr old step daughter a basic, pay as you go phone {tracfone} for her 10th birthday this week...then I get a text saying "we got her an iphone for her birthday-sorry to one up you" are you freaking kidding me? I'm so mad right now I could spit nails.......

honestly this BS I've been dealing with from her since I met the girls has been insane-and it's making me nuts-I have a 2yr old son and its also taking its toll on my marriage....what do I do? how do I set boundaries when she has none? I tell hr I dont want the phone at my house and she argues that this isn't fair? an iphone for a 10yr old? how is this taching responsibility at all????

What do you do? Talk to them before any large purchase and figure out what eachother wants to get her. See if that works. But quite frankly, I think 10 is too young for any kind of phone.
