I do everything for the kids. From the time we pick them up from mom's on Wednesday after school (at 3 during the summer) till Sunday night when she picks them up. I do all the baths, diapers (when they were happening), wet beds, tooth brushing, cooking, discipline, homework, parent teacher meetings, drs visits, dentists, sports/dance fees and practices, school and clothes and Christmas and birthday shopping. I play with them. I do it. And I'm happy to for two reasons. 1. My husband is useless when it comes to actually caring for another human being. He can't even do for himself. And 2. I know their mom doesn't see them as much as i do. Especially during the school year. So I do so much so she can enjoy the time they have together.
The thing is... My hubby told his ex 2 things the last couple weeks that really made me mad.
SS was sick (101.5 fever ish). He and I laid in my bedroom and I held him and cleaned up vomit and gave him medicine and told him stories for hours. Every time he woke up he'd ask me not to leave him. (made taking care of SD and housework hard) Well 10 or 11 in the night comes and hubby (who'd been asleep since 7:45) came in and said "why don't you let me sleep in here with him. He won't want to lay with me any other way." I protested, he asked me not to leave him. But hubby insisted I go sleep on the couch. SS woke up at 11:30 calling for me and vomitting. I heard him and came running, and cleaned up the mess, while holding him, while hubby watched.
2. When I took the kids to school I put my LAST $40 in their lunch accounts. I literally have $0 now.
So when hubby's ex comes he's like "SS woke me up because he got sick." Yes, he did. But it was the commotion that woke him.
And then with the money thing he said HE paid for their lunches.
Well so yeah, I'm not really looking for the credit. But he's literally lying about it. He also implies to his family (my in laws) that he does everything for the kids. Granted their mom doesn't do anything, but that doesn't mean he's doing it either.
Thanks for reding my rant! Would you be bothered too? I guess I don't know how to feel. As long as the kids are being cared for, Im happy. I just hate being made out like I don't contribute to them when I do so much because I want what's best for them.
