See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
with BM. This past weekend was the first weekend in over a month since we saw SD11.
Things went great actually.
Until Sunday night, when DH took the kids home to BM's house-he had to stop at CVS to get something. They saw all the Valentine's gifts/cards.
SS spied a few gifts he wanted to get me and his mother. (DH said they were the large over stuffed teddybears i love so much)
And SD asked him what he was buying as gifts.
He said he ordered my gift already and we haven't shopped for them yet.
She said about "BM, you celebrate Valentine's Day with her too"
DH explained it's been over 7yrs since he and BM celebrated Valentines Day. It's a day for couples to spend with one another, or in our case with the kids.
And DH said she wasn't happy about the fact he was buying for me and not her mom, and threw a tantrum in the store (aah the memories I wish to forget)
Let me remind those who don't know the situation. BM was 3 months pregnant when DH caught her cheating on him with another man. He threw her out. When SS was 9months old-I came into their lives. THings were hairy-but in the past 2-3yrs it's been great between all of us.
However, DH still refuses to celebrate Valentine's Day in anyway with BM. She's not one for lovey dovey gaga shit.
SD11 has known since the day BM and DH split-they were never getting back together.
He asked the kids if they wanted to buy BM a card or small gift to give her, ss said no, he only wanted to buy me something and SD said it's not her job to give her mom a gift-that's DH's job (BM's engaged to Big Man-he celebrates Valentines Day with BM-they've been together 3 yrs)
I have no thought on the matter-but I can't really help to wonder why after all these years SD11 cares that DH isn't buying for BM.
