Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

The audacity!!!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I got on the site wishuponahero and looked for people that needed help in my city. I found a single mom that needed clothes for her kids. I contacted her and it turns out she's homeless. She has a 2 month old and a 6 year old and she lost her 6 month old last year due to a heart condition.
We go to my moms on Thanksgiving and everyone is welcome. Well, I asked her if she wanted to go. She said yes, that was a couple weeks ago.
She started texting me asking me if I was going to pick her up Wednesday. I kept telling her no, we're having it on Thanksgiving which is Thursday. She said ok, then she would ask again the next day.
Finally on Tuesday I said I'd pick her up if she wanted to help me cook. She said yes.
So yesterday I went and picked her up, we came back to my house and she fell asleep while nursing her son, I understand that.
When she woke up she didn't help. Dh got home and we were talking and he asked her if she wanted to stay here until she got on her feet again, she said she would like that.
Well around 8:45 last night (15 minutes before ds gets his bath) she asked us to drive her somewhere and drop her off.
Ok, so we did. Well she takes us to this one house where this guy owes her money because she used her fs to buy him food. He wasn't there so she has us drive her somewhere else. On the way to the other house she asks if we will babysit her son so she can go out drinking.
Abso-fucking-lutely not! No. Nope. Sorry boutcha bad luck, lady but NO!
So we drop her off and instantly she starts texting and calling me, asking if she left something in the car. Nope, sure didn't.
Just now she texts me and asks if she can stay with us.
WTF?! No! That offer was before we knew she was a raging alcoholic! We don't drink, at all, we lead a very safe life for our son, we try to set good examples for him.
Ugh!
Dh will get a laugh out of this one! I didn't text her back, I don't even know what to say!!

I get that you were trying to do the right thing, but holy moly! Some random stranger in your house?! That's insane! You could have put your family at risk!!!

None-the-less, it was really nice of you to try.

I feel bad for her son though.

You dont lead a very safe life for your son if your allowing strangers to come into your home and offering to let them stay with you.

I'm a little worried for you. She sounds like trouble and now she knows where you live. She probably inventoried everything you own so she could bring her buddies by when you're not there. Please be careful. This sounds like a future Dateline episode.

Judemental Mormon right here!!! Get off her ass and stop thinking the way YOU do it, is best.


Quoting DaiTilley:

Regardless of how healthy YOUR lifestyle is, inviting someone in whom you don't know is potentially inviting in very unhealthy factors; if you invite a crackhead to live with you, you are putting your child in the position of living with a crackhead. You don't know this woman. She could be an alcoholic, a drug addict, a violent criminal...

We do a LOT of volunteer work, tithe 10% of our income and donate to charities on top of that, but I would never put my son in harm's way by bringing someone I don't know into my home.

I do lead a safe, drug free, alcohol free, healthy food, clothing, shelter, loving life for him. I was taught to help the less fortunate. I want him to know the same.

You don't lead a very safe life for your son if you impulsively invite a homeless person whom you don't even know to live with you.
