Just wanted to let you all know I got a call at 11:30am from SS' teacher. SS was in tears because biomom didn't show up. I tried calling her but she didn't answer so I went to the school and spent the rest of the party with him. I told him he could call his mom after school, but she didn't answer then either.
My stepson's kindergarten class is having a special Mother's Day party tomorrow. It's been a big deal. A few weeks ago each student had to make a special invitation to send out to the mothers asking them to come.
My stepson decided to invite me instead of his biomom, saying to the teacher that he was spending Mother's Day with her, so he wanted to do this one with me. The teacher said that would be great. I was touched and told him I'd love to go.
Well when biomom found our she went off on the school for violating her rights as the mother. She literally started shouting at his teacher. I'll add that this was the first time since August she's even met the teacher.
Now, the day it falls on IS DH's day with SS, not Mom's. So technically, our time... DH's choice who goes.
BUT, because I didn't want to cause problems for SS, I helped him remake the invite so he could give it to her. Then I called the teacher and to her that Mom would be going with him instead of me. Then I helped him understand that since she is his mother, hus only mother, that Mother's Day is her day, not mine. And it wouldnt be fair for me to take that from her. We'd do something else together another time, but he should have fun with mom because I just want him happy, and that's all that matters.
Now SS is saying he doesn't want to go to school. He's mad at his mom for not letting me go to the party. I know he'll be fine when she's there and all the kids are doing it with their moms. But I hate how upset he is over it.
What would you have done in this situation ladies?
