Wonderful Mothers Day!!

mom2emallMay 10, 2010

I had a wonderful Mothers Day yesterday. Went to breakfast with my dh and all 4 kids, along with some of my family. Then we went to the zoo. Afterwards we stopped by my Mother in laws home for dinner. The kids made me gifts and cards. DH and the kids picked out some flowers for me.

BM did not call all day, and the kids had their cells and did not call or even text her. BM's mom sent me an odd text. It was a forward of a #1 Mom picture with a song attached to it. I was a little surprised by it. I did send her a text back saying that was cute and hope she has a wonderful Mothers Day.

BM has not called the kids about the movie issue, and I convinced DH we should not take the kids to see the movie bm promised them.

I'm glad you had a nice Mother's Day!
I wish BM would act like a parent, and let those poor kids out of the limbo they are in because of her. But "if wishes were horses..."

I say to give it another week and if she STILL hasn't called about the movie, then take them. The kids shouldn't miss out just because their mom is a schmuck.

I'm so glad you had a wonderful day!

The way I see it is that your kids celebrated with the mother that really "feels" like a mother, and that should make you feel like the best mother in the world!

I really admire you. It is so hard to raise another woman's kids and you seem to do it with such grace and love.

Can I be like you when I grow up? LOL!

Thanks ashely and ceph!!

As for the movie Ceph, I know what you are saying. But I am so sick of bm making promises and breaking them. Then she gives the kids excuses and middle sd eats them up and sells them to ss. I don't want bm to call in a few weeks and the kids to tell her we saw the movie and then her say that she was still going to take them and me and dh ruined it. I want the fault to be totally hers!! It will not kill the kids to wait until it is out on dvd.
