StepMom Mantra of the Week

"Noone has the right to make plans that affect my life without my consent."

Cinderella starts day camp in two weeks.
A camp that BioMom promised Cinderella she could attend this summer without discussing it with Hubby or Me.
A camp that BioMom had written into the custody agreement back in January to ensure Cinderella would go.
A camp that runs for 4 weeks, for only 4 hours a day and costs $1000.
A camp that Hubby was ordered to pay for half.
A camp that we cannot afford and now The Boy has lost out on any chance for summer activities.
A camp for which I was the ASSumed chauffeur.
This last fact evidenced by BioMom's response to Hubby asking if she can handle transporting Cinderella to and from our Home:
That's the job of a Stay-At-Home-Mom.
She did.

Oy. I only expect my Ex to live up to his end of the deal, which he does up to 50% of the time. Which is actually pretty good given his track record. I don't have any assumptions of his fiancee's actions, other than she care for my children while they are in her hands. Which will happen for the first time next week. My precious baby will be left in her questionably capable hands. I'm very nervous about this. I've seen the dent in the front bumper of her brand-new-my-daddy-bought-it-for-me Lexus.

Oh no she didn't! I'd be on the phone in a heartbeat saying, "Sorry. Thanks to you, my son can't do any summer activities. So I shall be busy taking him to the park or the library or whatever I can find to entertain him. Transporting the Princess isn't in my marriage vows."

daionara: Excellent point. I like that tactic. I've just been avoiding having any contact with her this past week b/c I knew that I would not be as tactful. :)

Oh how frustrating! I can believe it though because it sounds exactly like what the biomom in my life is like.

I'd say, "I'm sorry I will not be able to take Cinderella. You should have asked if that would fit into my schedule before you made these arrangements." Witch!

I just found this blog and have been a SM for almost 8 years. I have to say it is nice to know that I am not alone. I just went back a little and am trying to catch up on the blog and saw this! It is funny to be how many of us SM's are so similiar and we all have BM's to deal with that are WITCHES!
