We do SD's birthday together every year. And up until this point the agreement has been the financial responsibility is split every other year (just a verbal agreement- no courts involved at all). We always go to an amusement park for SD's birthday. We paid for everyone last year.This year it was supposed to be BM's year to cover the cost- which was good because since the fire and me being laid off we are financially strapped and there is nothing left in case of emeregencies- the fire was the emergency.
Well BM announced two weeks ago that she'd not be able to afford to pay for SD's birthday this year. Okay, that sucks but we'll just have to do something different that doesn't cost so much. Yesterday, BM announced that she's going to pay for her side but she won't be paying for the whole thing (keeping in mind we paid for everything last year). Effectively she's trying to cut us out of SD's birthday. That won't happen- I'll find a way to pay for us to be there for SD's birthday. It's just wicked shitty.
