SD has been back from bm's now for 3 days. She was there for 5 weeks. Bm is definitely the Disneyland parent and lets her do whatever she wants. I'm not judging I'm just speaking the truth. OK, so now that she's back she's following me everywhere. Yes, everywhere. She's already bored. When I ask if she wants to do something,"I've already done that at my moms" when I suggest a movie or game, " I have that at my moms" if she's bored she comes to me and expects me to fix it. Before she left she wasn't like this. She would grab her kindle or other book and read for hours or color or dance in her room. She's perfectly happy to be home but she's just so up my ass that I feel like if I don't keep her happy she's going to want up be at her moms more. She even made a comment " it's much more fun here NOW" because since she's been home we've done a lot of fun things. And her mom didn't have much going on I guess. SD says she didn't have the money. Neither do we but usually bm is always doing it up. So I guess I just feel like SD is testing us. She is making us feel like we have to entertain her and keep her happy in order to be the "fun house" dh has already told her that's not what it's all about and how she needs to cherish her time with all of us and just enjoy us all without needing constant attention. How do you all deal with this?
