Things that make ya go hmmmmmm...
Marie said "Having been out of her life for many years -- for which, in my opinion, there is hardly ever a good justification "
But her DD doesn't visit with her dad and she supports that decision.... because she is a strong willed child etc.... so where is the justification?
FD said "When she visits, she demands a lot of attention, elaborate homecooked meals every day, entertainment etc yet she is sulking all the time (the only time she is not sulking is when SO buys her something expensive or takes her to expensive restaurants that he cannot currently afford)."
If any of us said that we would be reamed out sideways by all the BM's ... but its ok for FD to say it ... granted the "child is 27" but I bet she acted that way when she was a teen too.
Now discuss (hehehehe)
