And I don't know what to say. SD9 got picked up from school today with a busted lip, torn in 2 places. When DH questioned her about it, SD said BM smacked her in the mouth b/c she didn't like what SD said. Upon taking off the band-aid, DH found a hole in SD's lip where her tooth went thru all the way. DH is a raging mess right now. BM won't answer, so he left a message. He took a picture, but wants to call CPS, the police, and the SWAT team basically. What should really be done?
SD had a busted lip maybe 6 weeks ago as well, and told DH she had just bit it too hard, as she has a lip chewing habit. SD9 admitted BM had hit her then too, but told her not to say anything to DH "or else."
DH actually came home from work, he had told his boss, also a friend and dad, what happened. DH called the cops and made a report. He took SD to the Med Center, and she ended up with 3 stitches.
BM finally called back as well, and the reason she hit SD pissed DH off even more. We are having SD's B-day party here on the 13th, we didn't tell BM b/c she usually plans her own. Well, this year BM wanted a joint party, and wanted it to be the time that we are having SD's party here. SD started crying b/c she wanted 2 parties, b/ c joint parties never went well in the past. BM hit SD telling her SHE was the parent, and SD's opinion wasn't wanted or needed. BM is unfazed that the cops were called etc. SHE is the custodial parent, and it is "her right to disipline her child as she sees fit."
