See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I just spend the last 30 minutes listening to my oldest stepson sobbing on the phone. He wanted to spend the night with us tonight and his mother won't let him. He kept pleading for me to just come and get him but really I can't. It's not his father's weekend and if his mom says no I don't want to drive over there and stir up trouble with her.
He told us he wants to move in with us. I wouldn't mind one bit if he did. The schools are better here and he told us his mother rarely spends time with them. She hangs out with her friends and has left them alone overnight on more than one occasion. He hates it over there and has begged to move in with us. Main issue right now is we don't have the room and he has three younger siblings. He is 12, which is old enough to decide who he wants to live with. But, in my state they only "consider" that, it doesn't guarantee he can choose especially because they don't like splitting siblings up. This is such a mess. I feel so bad for him....
