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?
