DH and I are very frustrated right now. Everytime we turn around lately, we are "screwing up." DD9 and SD9 both wanted Monster High costumes this year, I saw them on sale for $6.99 and got them each one. SD was over the moon, BM is beyond pissed. DH has always bought the costumes for SD, and it was no issue to him, and doesn't get why BM is mad.(She's not saying, just told DH it "was BS we got it.")
SD12's birthday was the 4th, we got her what she asked from us, a VS Pink jogging suit, and a case for her iphone. BM got her a new bike, but got shitty with DH for getting a better gift to "show her up." We just got what she wanted!(SD12 lives with custodial gma)
We got SD9 a "cool" backpack for school, so she's not re-using the one BM bought last yr. (We were never told that was the plan, BM just asked us to get supplies for school, so we did.)
BUT if we didn't do these things, we'd never hear the end of it! There is more, but I am too tire to type them at this point.
