In response to a confession. This is terrible - have you spoken to the dad about his wife's behavior? I think it's sickening that she finds joy in making your DD upset! The kind of clothes they buy her can't be helped if they won't let her wear what she wants, but to laugh about it is really damaging. I wouldn't want my DD to be spending so much time with someone like that. What does DD have to say about it? I did go through something similar where my ex and his wife bought DS what THEY wanted him to wear when he was with them. It was like night and day - skater here, preppy there. DS hated it, too. His stepmom literally laid out his clothes for him until he was 14 and he said he could do it himself. There were only a few pieces that he liked and then SM declared she wouldn't buy him anymore clothes bc he "always wore the same things." He was only there 10 days/mo but had more clothes there than here!

Do you guys think this is weird? DD13s biodad abandoned her for 8yrs, last summer she's been seeing him again. He's remarried. At first she'd go up for a weekend, then a week, then 2 weeks, now it's every other month. We live in diff states. DD likes to wear dark clothing, I let her be herself since my own mom didn't let me. But what I find weird is her stepmom texts me things like "LOL I make her wear khakis and polo or tie dye shirts and she HATES it HAHAHAHA" like she thinks it's funny to upset her by forcing her to wear clothes she hates. Is there something off about this? She brings clothes from here with her, but they bought her stuff she doesn't like.

I canNOT with all these homeschool moms not allowing their children to have a voice and then as soon as they turn 18 expecting them to be adults. "My kids want to go back to school, but I don't and I don't allow them to contribute to decisions regarding their future." Oh fuck off. I try SO hard to let my kids make their own decisions while also guiding them to the *wise* decision. If they mess up, they learn from mistakes and have me there to catch them. Not just me forcing them to do what I want them to do or be or say. I was never allowed a voice either, I guess that's why it pisses me off so badly. There's a difference between respecting a parent and outright fear and domination in parenting.

In response to a confession. Hang in there, mama.. I had the same issue with both of my kids. It's just temporary.

In response to a confession. My daughter never did get covid. But now my next door neighbors have it. They have two little girls that my 4yo granddaughter loves to play with and I had to keep them apart all weekend. Nobody in the house is super sick with it, but they have it. So my little angel had to watch the girls playing outside without her, through the window. Very confusing for her because I told her she couldn't play with them because they didn't feel good. Then there they are outside playing and she naturally assumed they were all better. Every bit of this sucks. How do I know when it's okay for them to be together again?

My daughter and her boyfriend were both exposed to covid last weekend. And now they both are having symptoms. They've both been tested and are holing up until they get their results. I hate this. She's four hours away. Not that I could really do anything if she was close. Send good vibes, chitchat friends.

I love babysitting my granddaughter. She's 4. She's the most fun to be around, and I love to have her over for the whole weekend. I just don't want to have her over this coming weekend. And I have guilt about it. I know she wants to come over but I have a lot of work do get done this weekend. They don't really love close enough for her to just come for a short play-date type visit.

My youngest is turning 5 next month. His second birthday in a pandemic. When I asked him what he would like to do, he asked for a water slide and said "I can have so much fun with my brother!" Poor baby just knows not to expect anyone else to be there. Absolutely broke my heart. Now I'm struggling to find anyone in our area that has been safe enough to invite.

Ex's reluctance and outright refusal at times to contribute financially to DS' needs was one of the biggest reasons I broke up with him. Since DS is living at home while attending college, support continues until age 23. However, the continuation paperwork was mishandled, support stopped and I had to reopen the case. He hired an atty to try to get out of it, even though it's law. Bc of his job he is seen as an upstanding citizen, but he's just a dirtbag, Case in point: before court he asked DS to provide a paystub from his part-time job. For whatever reason, DS grabbed his biggest-ever, from Christmas when he picked up shifts and got OT. Ex tried to use this to say that DS takes home $200/wk and can basically support himself. Judge disagreed and support continues, with arrears. Poor DS, his own father threw him under the bus. I'm sick to my stomach.
