So, we have SD10 fulltime and BM has completely gone on to live her own life with no care for SD and no indication of trying to visit or gain any rights to custody.
I have no idea why men complain about their wives giving them the silent treatment...this baggage-carrying moron is giving it to me and I'm LOVING it!!
I don't care what anyone says, skids are more entitled and more lazy than most.
This past year, SD10 has been getting more and more hateful toward DH and I, but mostly toward me.
BM told me 3 yrs ago on the phone that SD10 is better off with DH & I full time. She remained absent for years while she was comitting felony fraud and living with strangers.
Weird, but FIL has 2 granddaughters from DH & I. SD10 was his first (she was a one-night stand from DH and his felon GF), and my BD2 is his second grandchild.
1) We have SD10 full time. BM has shown up to visit 3 times in 5 yrs.
It seems like nothing about my particular blended family is ever typical. It makes is that much harder to get support & understanding.
BM has been absent for 5 of SD's 10 yrs on this planet...yet, she thinks that her 3 day visit here, and 5 day visit there really means she is the almighty "influencial female role model" in SD's life!
So I'm happy for my sister but it brings up feelings of annoyance & envy that I wasn't so lucky
