SMs, do your step kids have the key to your house?
How do you make sure your identification, your financial information are not taken to someone who should not have it?
At what age you make the spare key of the house for your step kids?
BM is an ok person when her finance is not in shamble. She is in a good place financially now since her husband is a very responsible man. However, when BM was in financial trouble, like everyone else, can turn to become shady. On top of that, BM's mom is "dying" to get into our new house. I don't know why. My OSD used to go through my purse, my files that kept in the room we used as office. Her dad caught her taking the 1st page of my 401k statement a few years ago when BM came back from another state. There was more to this story, but I won't bother you with the details.
Since the SDs are in middle school now, and BM's mom is volunteering to pick up/drop off for after school activities, the girls have been asking us if they can have the keys of the new house. Under normal circumstances, I'd give they key to them within a heart beat.
