BM mad

BM picks up SS on Sunday evening. DH, DS2, SS12 and I went to the beach with DH's cousin. We were about to leave when DH's cousin said he could drive SS home to be picked up by BM because he wanted to go home anyway. So we agreed. DH's cousin got SS home 10 minutes before BM gets there, BM was furious that DH's cousin was the one to drive SS home and not us. DH's cousin is around a lot and he's even picked SS up from BM's house to take him surfing on one of her days, so what's the big deal? I think she was mad that she didn't get to go to the beach that day and was probably jealous that DH, DS and I could stay!

I don't think I would give it a second thought.

Thank you! BM freaked out and was cussing at DH and calling all of us irresponsible children. We are with SS more than she is! When she has him he's with step dad the entire time! She has no room to talk!

Let the silly bird be mad. What is with some BMs that just can't handle other people having fun.

Brush her off like lint.

Yes, when you don't know why someone is upset, assume jealousy.

I thought it was just because she's BM.  Aren't all BM's jealous of SM?

Now that you mention it, yes, yes we are. 
And when we aren't too busy being jealous, we're bitter. 
Forgot about that for a minute. Thanks for reminding me.

So what if she is mad.  You all didn't do anything wrong.

A day at the beach is so fabulous and rare, after all....

I'm confused why you're even devoting mental energy toward this.  She's upset about BD's decisions on BD's time.  That's her problem (and possibly your DH's if she takes it up with him).  The proper response from you would be to absolutely not give a shit.
