BM keeps making promises to SD that she doesn't follow through with. I don't know if she's making them KNOWING she's not going to follow through or what. For the last 3 years straight BM has been promising SD dance classes or art lessons then she flakes. She'll tell SD "If you do X, Y, Z I'll get you into dance classes/art lessons." And SD goes on and on about how BM promised this. Well, SD does what BM wants, and no classes/lessons.
Since September BM has promised SD dance classes (again) and art lessons (again), however, BM doesn't have custody and by choice only sees SD one weekend a month. So, she'd either be trying to schedule things on DH's time, which is impossible to do as SD has weekly physical therapy, bi-weekly occupational therapy, and DD has bi-weekly occupational therapy and weekly behavior therapy and I don't know that we can fit a regular class into our schedule at this point and BM can't take SD too and from because she's either working or going to school (which is her reason why she can't take many of her visits) OR BM would be paying for classes/lessons that SD would only be able to do once a month.
Today, BM promised weekly yoga classes with SD over the summer. That would be REALLY good for SD, but even then there's no way BM could follow through with weekly classes unless she discussed it first with DH as every other week the class would be during his time. The thing is, SD is excited, she REALLY wants to take a yoga class with BM. SD has been going to some of the exercise classes at the YMCA (we're members) and really enjoys it (and it helps with her physical therapy goals).
I just REALLY hope BM follows through.
