I am pissed.
I know I can't stay pissed because it's not healthy.
Every time we spend a lot of money on the kids for something like a gift, it seems like BM finds a way to take credit when she's done exactly nothing. The Wii. the PS3, the guitar, the flute, the "whatever the big gift is that we pay for".... Mom signs her name and it just goes on and on. We buy something, she takes credit.
This week...we bought a car for SD16. We handed it off to BM and she was going to deliver as she has sent the kids to live with her mother for the summer 6 hours away and my DH had to leave the country again today. Guess what? She decided to write on the windows ":Love, Mom, Dad and Birdseed" Um...no. We paid for it. NOT "love Mom." No. MOm didn't do shit on this.
Please help me. I am so bothered by this. WE paid for it. WE are the ones who looked at like 40 cars in a week. We got up early we stayed up late and drove miles and miles for the last week. We made tons of phone calls. We drove all over hell and back trying to find THE CAR for SD16.
And BM got to deliver it and take "credit" once again.
It makes me angry and I know I need to get over it. So please...help me get over it. Because that is money I'd sure like to spend on other things...and if I can't, it sure would be at least nice to get a little credit. I got a text copy to Mom thanking Mom. MOM DID NOT PAY FOR IT. WE DID.
No thanks to us.
I know this is My problem. But it really pisses me off.
