Why can't we all just get along?
My oldest daughter, who is at her dads this week, (we have shared parenting, week on week off) calls me crying, from a number I don't know...."can you come pick me up?" Now i am freaking out, "where are you?!" she rattles someones name off that i don't know...apparently her and the step mom had words, the dad is at work, and the step mom took the phone with her when shand left...that was the jist of it. Immediately I am fuming of course. For one, don't leave my daughter at home alone with NO freaking phone, we have already been over this. Two...this has been going on now for several weeks, the arguing with the step mom, daughter calls me crying, the dad and I get into it because i am pissed that the step mom made MY daughter cry yet again....so now the dad is on his way home from work after only being there for 2 of his 12 hour shift.....am i glad i am here at MY house? ABSOLUTELY!!!
Why can't step moms, step dads, step kids, moms, dads, brothers, sisters all just get along? Why does everything have to be an argument?
13 year olds and step mom's just don't get along...don't you get it step mom? So just back off for a minute and let things cool off, stop stirring the pot...it will all settle down...she will have someone else to "not like" in a couple of weeks...she is a teenager..."everyone is doin' it"!!
For once I feel like I am the parent with no issues!! Excuse me while I go bask for alittle bit! (and wait for the dad to call me)
I hope everyone else is having a great evening as well!!
