It's that wonderful time of the year where it's the end of the school....and graduations are coming up.
This year my SD13 is graduating 6th grade along with her stepbrother.
The other night DH came back from taking the kids home,when BM texted my cell (we only have 1 cell phone and it's mine) asking if he could take off June 18th from his job.
I asked what that was about-he said it's for SD's graduation. I thought "Perfect! Make sure you take flowers for SD!"
DH then said he was an after thought.....then explained-each graduate only gets 3 tickets. Now growing up in my large family-parents came first. No matter what.
BM took SD's 3 tickets-she gets one,her brother was getting one,and her sister was getting one. DH wasn't to be included.
When BM gave her brother his ticket,he was excited to see DH at the graduation-BM told her brother DH wasn't invited because there were not enough tickets....her brother handed her the ticket back and said "Give this to your daughter's father, he has more right to be there then I do." and walked away.
Their sister also agreed DH should have been asked before either sibling. Now for those of you who do not know the backstory-SD13 is NOT DH's biological daughter. He was with BM when SD was 1-5yrs of age,then left her for fucking another man while pregnant with their son.
He made a promise to SD13-as long as she wanted him to be her dad-he'd be there for her. And kept that promise ever since.
I think it's shitty what she did,but I'm glad he's able to go. He'll be taking flowers with him,I hope they have a great time and SD enjoys herself.
