See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I was having a really bad sm day yesterday....just tired of feeling like I do more for my skids than I get back or get credit for. I can sit with SD for two hours doing math homework that her BM doesn't understand, she will go to school the next day and call DH all excited becase she got an 85 or 90 on her test...doesn't once acknowledge it was the work that WE did together or even bother to say thank you or want to talk to me about it. Tired of ss just pissing away resources and being rude to family and not respecting me and forgetting my birthday...
I am tired of feeling like I have to push DH and BM to actually parent these kids and feeling like sometimes, I am the only one that thinks about their future....anyhoo, I decided yesterday I am doing a lot of complaining! I decided NOT to complain about it and disengage...HA!
Last night SD calls up crying because she is being bullied in school and now her friend is being bullied. I was in the middle of pumping for DS and I tried telling DH that I am busy and I will talk to her later but he put her on speaker and left the room....so much for my disengagement.
Mother's day is coming up and I know the skids won't do anything for me and they will spend that weekend with BM who does nothing for them, emotionally, finacially, etc so I WANT TO DISENAGE but now I feel like no one will let me....what do I go?
