Flipper4u21 is right, rise above it. I am the mom, my ex's girlfriend refuses to be cordial at all. We have been divorced since 2004 - and she was our babysitter no less! I am nice, invite them to all of the kids school events, birthdays, graduations, etc. It is not about us adults after all, it about our children. She needs to grow up and behave like an adult. The fact is we are going to have to deal with each other for a long time. Through their graduating high school, getting married, having children and beyond. If she cannot deal with it, she can stay home - which my ex's girlfriend has started to do even though he comes to our house and so does his family.
