And it's worrying me. She used to be overprotective and always wanting to be with her kids. Well she took them camping with her family and her moms friend this weekend. They boys came back worried and voiced their concerns to me. I guess she let K ride his bike on the 2 lane road they were swimming and both boys ended up ripping a toenail off and she didn't do anything about it. (fixing up an infected toe is not what I was planning on last night, They were nasty.) and she didn't spend any time with them until Sunday before they came home. And when they came home they were starving. They said they got one hot dog for breakfast and a pack of mini donuts for lunch. And we didn't pick them up until 6pm. The boys said that they were worried about their mom when they came home. And the fact that they are worried is what concerns us. But other than the change in behavior we don't have anything else to go on. I think DH wants to take them to talk to our old worker today and see what she thinks. I just home for their sake that it's nothing. But I don't think thats the case.
Well we talked to the boys a little more. They say that her and her BF are fighting over stupid things like what they think the color of a car is. And that their mom can be happy one minute then yelling and mad the next. B said she will complain about being sick and not feeling good then go to her room for a few hours and then be feeling great that evening. Which I can understand that I get migraines so I have to do that sometimes but they said she does it every afternoon. The CPS said they can't do anything unless there is either a court order or neglect. And since her BF is there it's technically not neglect if she sleeps all day long. They said their recommendation would be to go back to court and have the judge change the visitation to at the kids discretion. Let them make the decision. Because they have both said they don't want to be over there the way that she is acting. But that a personality change alone isn't enough to open a case. But it wasn't our old worker that we talked to. So I don't know if DH wants to call and talk to her since she knows our history. I'm just terrified that she is using again, because all of these behaviors are ones that neither us nor the boys have seen since she was using back in 2007.
