So check this out. My step daughter (5 years old) missed school on Monday due to an ear infection. Tuesday, when SD got to my house, I asked her if she was sick yesterday (with every intention of following this up with "are you feeling better?). Instead, her answer was "uummm....nooo. I wasn't sick." I asked why she missed school and she says "My mom wanted to have a timeout day with me so I didn't go to school." I said "Oh really? What did you do with your mom?" She says "Well, we went to the store, then we went to the mall, buuuut, we didn't get our picture taken with Santa because my mom and Enter boyfriend's name here were fighting."
Ok, so BM kept SD out of school to go to the mall. Lied to her child's father saying she was sick when she wasn't. She's teaching her that she can miss school to do whatever she wants. She is the adult, she should be taking time off from her job to spend time with her daughter on the weekend, not taking her out of school. I just feel like it was such a wrong thing to do.
So then when my SO confronted BM about the situation, her response was "Alicia is lying. She was sick. I had to take her to the doctor for her ears." So not only did she lie to her daughter's father about his own daughter being sick, but now she has called her OWN DAUGHTER a liar. My SO contacted the doctor's office to see if SD was seen Monday and they have no record of her being seen.
I'm furious about this! Yet, my hands are tied and I am not allowed to say/do anything regarding the situation.
Hence the reason I joined this group. I just need to vent.
