SS is with BM this weekend. She originally thought she was going to have to work & have her mom watch SS. She sent me a text saying that someone is covering her shift. Then tells me that I can come get SS tomorrow to go with me to my parent's house. WTH? You have an opportunity to spend the day with your only child and instead of enjoying the day with him, you pawn him off onto his SM? As a BM myself, I could not do that to my child. But yet, she accuses us of pushing her out of SS life. She's doing that all on her own! I feel so bad for SS. So, I guess I'll be spending the day with my BS & SS... :O)

That is exactly what I thought when I read the text.  It just amazes me that she would rather have SS spend the day with me instead of herself.  She always likes to point out that "She's the Mother".  I know that she's the mother.  She doesn't act like it.  Especially when she keeps pushing him (by her actions) towards me.  Sunday is her, "Let's go party night".  She even showed up at the school on a Monday evening for a school meeting still drunk/hungover.  She sat there and told me she was still drunk and thought it was cute!  I think she's a top contender for "Mother of the Year".

Oh, I am.  It's just disappointing to see her once again, push SS to the backburner to take care of her needs.  It's a pattern that she's always lived by.  We don't call her the NCP, we refer to her as the Convenient Parent.  She acts like Mom when it's convenient for her and when she has to show off in front of friends.  She will never grow up and if she ever does, I'm afraid that it will be too late.

I think you should focus more on how your DH spends his time and less on how the NCP spends hers. Are you a NCP also? If you are not, they are two very different shoes.

Ugh. I've stopped trying to understand certain people's actions. It is impossible to rationalize the rationale of the irrational

 i dont understand it either, but i too have my ss here today. bm never showed and we haven't heard from her at all to cancel or anything. she has always had him for mother's day. we usually get him sundays at 11, and last year she did not ask to keep him any later either. eh, to some people it's just another sunday i guess.
