What's wrong with texting my SS14?

I live in Massachusetts and we just got hit with a bunch of snow Saturday night. DH worked from 930 to 5 and the forecast said the snow was going to make the commute very messy by 5. DH had to drive to 2 towns after work to pick up both of his sons. I texted SS14 and had him ask his BM if I could pick him up early before the snow started so I could at least lessen the amount of time DH and our precious cargo would be out on the road. BM said the snow wasn't supposed to start until 8 or 9 o'clock so no I could not. I texted SS14 when the snow started at 3 and jokingly asked him what time it was. Of course he answered with a sarcastic remark back because even he knows when his mother is being difficult just to be difficult and it aggravates him as well as his father. Then he and I had a little bit of humorous banter back and forth about the snow outside. His mother asked him who he was texting and when he said me she got all upset and said why is she texting you? Why is she acting like your friend and not a step parent? SS14 said to his mother everyone makes a big deal out of telling her she's just dad's wife and nothing else to me so what do you expect her to act like? What would you have said?

 You seriously find nothing at all wrong with this scenario. (not asking, just stating.) I can't imagine how you would expect a functional relationship with her when you pull stuff like this. #1Rule: Leave the kids OUT OF IT!

 

Seriously, grow up and get a clue!

I'd say your SS had a good snappy comeback.  Hopefully his Mom will absord and think about his words.  I also really don't understand what kind of parent wouldn't want their children to travel earlier before a heavy snowfall.

She's a control freak to the max, OCD. She would love it if my DH disappeared off the face of the earth if it didn't mean losing her child support.

She's just jealous that you & SS have a good relationship. Which I find ridiculous. You'd *think* birth parents would be relieved that their kids have good step parents. It's insecurity.

I know when I was 14 I had the say on when I went where. If I wanted my step mom to pick me up to help my dad out it wouldn't have been a problem!

Because it was ME offering the ride, the EVIL SM.

I thinks its great that you have a good relationship with your ss but making jokes about bm is not very mature.  When it comes to bm's shenanigans leave the kids out of it.  I think its ok to text ss.  Just not about bm.

Yeah well then biomom wouldn't get the wonderful satisfaction of saying no because SHE has to be the one in charge.
