Well this just takes the cake.......
I get a call from BM today. She did good around the holidays calling the kids, then stopped calling. Today she called to tell me she is back in our state and wants to see the kids this weekend! She told me she moved back and wants to suprise the kids Saturday when she picks them up and then she will "let her babies know that mommy is home!"
After I picked up my jaw and swallowed the vomit that was coming up my throat I was still unable to speak for a moment.
I mean the nerve of her to call and refer to the kids as her babies and say mommy is home! Thats a joke! First of all 2 of her "babies" are teenagers and one is nearing pre-teen. Second of all "mommy" is a pretty big compliment for someone who blew off her kids for a year this time and has blown them off for months at a time previously.
I wish that I believed she was here for the long haul and would be a long-term part of the kids lives. But I know all too well her pattern of coming in the kids lives and leaving without a trace. Then dh and I get stuck dealing with the destruction she left behind.
I just wish she would have stayed gone. Why come back??? We spoke to her family about it and they said she told them about her plans to move within the last week or so. They said it seems like it was planned on a whim.
So now they are back and staying with some of their relatives near us "till they get on their feet". Which is another joke because BM and her BF have not been able to keep their own apartment for even 6 months the whole time I have been with DH!
