This is petty, but I have to vent a little.

OK, I am going to start by openly admitting this is just one of those petty, little, get-under-your-skin stupid things...

We get SD7 every Friday night and EO Saturday through Sunday afternoon. BM gets CS and has primary responsibility for SD's clothes, so the agreement is she packs a suitcase for the weekend.

For the past three Friday nights, SD has shown up with a nightgown that says, "Mommy's Little Dreamer."

Ugh!? Really?

Told ya it was petty... It's just been a long, hot week. :/

You can vent. It's fine. I get it. I am sure that she has other things she can wear. And it has been a long hot week.

Don't let it get to you too bad. Sounds like you need to sit under the AC for a little while and cool down.

Really?  If this is all you have to complain about, I'd say you're doing pretty well.

I don't see anything wrong with the shirt. If it said "Stepmoms are evil" I could see there being a problem. ;)

Not by a long shot. It's just one of those passive aggressive digs intended to piss me off. Trying to not let it work, but, DAMN it's too hot for this crap!

Let's see... There's SD's lovely habit of grabbing everything she can touch, moving, stealing or hiding things she knows belong to someone else just so she can sit back and watch the search. One time, it was my glasses which she buried in the toy chest, and I had to get new ones to end the migraine after 3 days without them. That was $200 worth of fun.

Tonight's event: sneaking one of DD's favorite toys into SD's room by wrapping it up in one of SD's pillow pets. Except the toy makes *noise* so we heard her playing with it. And got, "Oh, I forgot that was there..." (instead of in the bin where DD put it, wow! just magically transported itself elsewhere?!)

Then there's BM sending SD to march in a July 4th parade when she has an ear infection, was at the doc w/a temp of 102 and it was over 100 degrees out. But BM thought it perfectly fine to send SD to walk the parade...and yet it was "too hot" for BM to sit in, so she watched from her AC'd office and texts my fiance it's too hot for HER. So, he walked with SD to make sure she didn't overheat and pulled her from parade at halfway point.

Just...yeah. Too friggin hot.

what? Yeah petty would be the word lol. Not something I'd care about, but I know there are plenty of things that have gotten under my skin that in hindsight were just as petty, so guess I can't blame you.
