I have been in my 22 year old stepdaughters life for the last 7 years ... I do not try to be her mother because she has one, and like I said she is grown with kids of her own. i do however try to be a "friend" ( who tries to give motherly advice lol ) ... and i do LOVE her children ( they do call me mamaw) ...
Well the point of this is that I am utterly annoyed. She has always been a drama queen but now it is becoming too much.
After she had her first child we helped her get an apt. and get set up for a grown up life ( even though we still help pay for some things) ... but it is hard to even do that, I feel like we are just helping her live this life that isnt going to get her anywhere... but that is a story for another time...
Right now she is throwing a fit because I disagreed with the tattoo she wants for her birthday... even though I personally dont like tattoos for myself, I dont care if someone else wants one... and if she wants one as a birthday gift, i have no problem buying for her ( afterall it is her birthday) ... so she said she wants to get one with her boyfriends name or initials or something to do with him ... i couldnt contain myself and was like " really?" ... so that made her mad... I tried to explain to her that, there is no way we can pay for tattoo removal if they break up... which mad her madder saying they will not ever break up... and then she stopped talking to ( but yes still plans on getting the tattoo)
now I didnt say she couldnt get the tattoo, because it is her body, her birthday gift... but i just tried to explain to her getting something that big in that place, it will be there forever....
She has 3 kids by 3 different guys and her oldest is 4 years old... she has also been married once ( for 7 months) , and has moved 2 completely different men in with her... so if you figure that up, that is 6 men in 4 years ( plus there are more but these are just the ones she "loved") .. but yet THIS guy, the one she has been dating for barely 2 months... well he is the one who gets the honor of his name permanetly written on her...
Does anyone else see why i find a problem with that ?
