I really don't like DH's ex knowing things. She can know whatever she wants to know about things that affects her kids, but beyond that, I don't think she needs to know a darned thing.
DH was talking to her about something with SS the other night, and she says, So I hear *my name* is looking for a new car. Why didn't she get a new car and give her old one to *SD*? Then SD wouldn't have to get a job to pay for that car.
Well, first of all, I don't think it's her business whether or not I get a different car. Second, it is no more MY responsibility to provide her daughter with a car than it is for ex's new husband to provide SD with a car. That's for DH and ex.....not me and stepdad!
DH also told SD that I am getting my tubes tied next week. Why? She will be with her mother, I will apparently be healed up by the time she comes back.......No one would ever have to know.
I don't have a problem with the skids knowing things like this, except that I know for a fact they tell their mother everything. SD found out on Sunday afternoon that I was looking for a new car, and her mother knew by the time DH talked to her on Sunday night. I know they run right to her with things, and I don't think she needs to know.
Is it wrong that I don't want the ex to know this stuff? Why does it bother me? Am I over-reacting here?
