See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I have a husband with two kids from a marriage before ours, we have one child together.
this summer he's going to be working overseas quite a bit, and will hardly be here, and so I am going to be taking the stepkids. The mother doesn't work, she's remarried, but we're not going to say anything about my husband not being home. I will be taking the kids for all of his times, which is every weekend Friday to Monday AM, and two solid weeks in the summer. At this point, he might not be around at all this summer, we have no idea when he can even be back, so I'm just going to take all the time so the mother doesn't have them and she won't be the wiser!
We're going to do so many cool and fun things, i have always wanted more kids, and this is the best way to do it! She can suffer the nine months per kid, the diapers, the puke, the sleepless nights, and i will get to do the fun stuff, even without my husband around. I don't think she should even be their mother, I'm much better, smarter, way more fun, we have more money, I don't have to work, and I think they'll like being with me more because of all the activities I'm planning on taking them to. First thing this weekend coming up is mani's and hair appointments and a 'spa day' followed by a shopping spree at Justice! I'm really into bonding with the girls over silly frivolous stuff that's just totally fun, and there's no way they can do with their mother!
One of my friends said I'm being sneaky by not telling the mother that the father won't even be in the country and I will have them all to myself, but hey -- they're my kids too! she can go to hell !!
Posting annon because she might be on CafeMom! YIKES! I don't want her to know about my plans!
EDIT to this: I am not taking more time, I'm taking his legal times. The mother won't have them any less than she does now. They will skype with him every day and call, he will talk to them, just not be there in person. what's the big deal?
