My husband and I live pay check to pay check. We budget for things like back to school, and Christmas a YEAR in advance.
He pays his court ordered child support faithfully ! The court order specifically states that BM is responsible for all costs outside of the court ordered child support.
Two weeks ago, BM started crying that she needs help with school supplies and clothes. Okay, we'll make it work - we're not going to let SD go to school without the things that she needs. BM just moved to a new city, and will not tell DH the name of the school SD will be attending. There are 4 possible schools. So he told BM to send him the name of the school and he'll pull the supply list and dress code off of the website, and order SD some things and have them sent to BM's home.
This woman is refusing to give DH the name of the school, or even a copy of the supply list - she just wants him to send her money. NO! I get a 50% discount on everything at Office Max, through my job. I will be ordering the supplies and saving ourselves some money.
Nope - BM isn't having it. She wants the money or "Our daughter can just suffer because her dad is a dead beat"
Whatever dude! You're a control freak! Your daughter is missing out because you are a control freak.
This isn't the first time BM has thrown tantrums over money.
For Christmas, SD wanted a Barbie house. We made it happen! BM was PISSED that we didn't just send her the money! For Valentines day, DH sent his daughter some flowers and some stationary, self addressed envelopes etc. BM flipped out that she could have put that money to better use
UGH! Sorry, had to vent -
