so we sent the kids home with all the new clothes we bought them, plus whatever we had here that would fit them(they really didn't grow much in the last year) and we sent them both home with brand new tennis shoes, that was 4 weeks ago.
today BM told DH she needed 200 extra dollars with the regular CS because " the kids have NO clothes or shoes for school"
ughm what? I KNOW they have clothes and shoes.. I BOUGHT THEM AND PACKED THEM!
anyway, he tells her no we don't really have the money at the moment but that next week when he gets paid if we have the extra money we will buy them some clothes and shoes and if she'd give us her new address(oh yeah she got evicted and moved AGAIN) we would send them to her
her response " NO WAY! you have no idea what size their in and they have to try everything on"
no they don't unless they grew a lot in the last 4 weeks they're in size 5 and 7 and she can tell us the shoe size if its changed.
she continued to throw a fit wanting cash..

yeah, sounds like she doesn't want money for clothes or shoes, she wants money.

L never gets money from us. If she mentions Reme needs something, we get it for him.

Yeah, I'm with Ashley. She probably only wanted the money and had no intention of buying clothes.

I agree with the consensus. She just wants money. Screw that they got new clothes and your dh paid support. She can use that. BM used to try that crap all the time. Thankfully, DH would always put his foot down on that one. He used to give in, until she took him to court and had him double pay his support that he already paid.

Glad he didn't do it!! Did he point out to her that he sent them home with new clothes and shoes? She should be happy about that, I know a lot of single mom's who barely get any child support and their ex's would NEVER buy anything extra.

exactly, I know a lot of single moms who get NO help from the dads my DH goes beyond what he has to, because he is a father and he wants to make sure they're taking care of.
she did eventually give him her address so now we can send them things, but I told him nothing big that she can take back or sell since she does that A LOT.. bought Ethan games for Christmas then took them back, like if you can't afford to buy 6 freakin games then don't buy them.. that's just mean to let him see them then take them away.

I'm fairly sure that that's what bm does with a lot of the toys and clothes given to my dsc by us and my il's. It's hugely obnoxious.

This is why BM's clothes come on C and they go back on C. shoes socks jackets everything. Eventually I am sure this will change. I hate it. I never send him in the clothes we have bought because they come back destroyed. I feel really petty about it but he never comes in the same outfit twice ever, because she is always buying him new stuff. Because of the her stuff stays with her sides of the family and ours stays with our sides of the family it is fairly drama free when it comes to gifts and back and forth between houses.

We don't send things over to BM's house but the clothes on their backs, She took K's skateboard helmet back and then lied to him about it when it was Dh's cousin that did the return! She told him that they were going to go do something this weekend and that it was already planned when he told her that he didn't want to come over because he wanted to go to work with me so he could get in the pool and play with all the kids we had this weekend. But then he says they never did anything at all. He is so ticked. Sometimes I think that the BM's don't think about their kids. They only think about themselves.

I would stick with the fact that if they need something or she needs money for something for them (football dance class ect) that you can send a check written out to the activity or whatever, and if she needs clothes then you can buy them and send them. That way she can't be hitting you all up for money if she wants a new pair of shoes and say she needs it for the kids. Thats just my opinion.

yeah DH refuses to pay for anymore activities because last summer she told him she needed to buy Ethan shoes for t ball... he played 2 games because she signed him up for SUMMER ball when he comes here for the summer.. idiot.
no matter what he does it's never enough, and I'm really thinking of buying their christmas presents and already wrapping them with tags saying they're from him, because even though he always sends her christmas money for them they always ask after Christmas why he didn't get them anything..
she has it good, she doesn't have to fight him to pay CS or to see the kids.
we were talking last night about all the things she has done and I'm like " WTH did you EVER see in her? she was nuts even before you got with me"

Well even if you did do that then she may just take the tag off or re wrap them. I would pick a special day during the time you have them and do a "Christmas in July" kinda thing. That way they get their gifts and know they are from him.


Our
BM has actually broken into our house and stolen christmas toys that I hadn't wrapped yet. I know this because they came up missing then BM got them exactly what we were missing. imagine that.
