Setting a precedence for skids/kids shouldn't Always be included in stepfamilies!
As many know(in my stitch)this is my dh's home. Skids had their own rooms when I moved in. My dds share(which is fine until the new edition came along) but it doesn't bother me until things happen like this happen....
Sometimes my dds watch tv or lay down in my skids room. They don't touch anything,Ect. There are rules when they are in there. My ydd is sick so I told ODD12 to go sleep in OSS18 room. Ss comes by here this morning yelling at my odd and asking her why she's in his room,to Get out,Ect.
This pisses me off. They hardly ever want to be here as it is. My dh has tried EVERYTHING to get them to come over. Movie night,$ for some chores,dinners, one on one time,Ect.
They are just ungrateful little butt heads sometimes. (Yes,I love them but I can be mad sometimes) Skids(even my dds sometimes) walk into our room unannounced and spray 10 sprays of $100 cologne on yet want to yell at my dds for sleeping/watching tv in their rooms??! I don't think so. Yss doesn't even keep clothes here anymore. His closet is literally empty. Dh even let me put our winter stuff in there bc there's so much room.
I'm just mad at this whole precedence stuff. Crap changes,deal with it. The parents can do what they want and that's that. Sorry to bring you in here lee but it reminds me of lees stitch(totally not the same,but same thought pattern). Just because something has gone on for a long time does not mean it should continue! Just bc my skids had these rooms first,does not give them precedence over my kids. If lees ss Bm moved,would ppl be mad at the Bm? Or just look at it as she moved? Things don't always stay the same and these kids aren't living in poverty so what gives?!?!
End of my vent.... I don't care if my dds share a room but I will care when OSS graduates high school and goes and lives with Bm FT and visits here. Then it will change in a couple of months. IMO. Pfffffftttttt! (Sorry,I know I've bitched about this before! Darn PMS! )
