My step son's mother is a real piece of work. She works full time and so does her new hubby. She NEVER buys her single child any new clothes and she knows that if she sends him to us in small clothes or weather inappropriate clothing that I will send him home in clothes that will work.
We just purchased a new winter coat, hat, mittens, and snow pants for him as well as a new winter wardrobe for the fast growing boy. We always make sure to purchase basic extras to send home to his mommy.
We just had our first snow and she asked us if we could buy him a pair of snow boots too because she cannot afford them . They are $12 at Walmart!!!!!
Of course we will buy them because we won't make the little man suffer. How can we get her to stop this little game of hers????

Does you DH pay child support? If he does, tell her to use it on him. I understand that they both work and do have bills of their own, but she and your DH should be sharing the responsibilities of your ss. And I'm not saying that you should stop doing for him, but I would back off a little and make her do her part. It's not fair that your DH and you are being taken advantage of and it sounds like you are.
