I seriously wish I was making this up.

She said one day "I had to give him a few puffs of my inhaler it was so dusty today!"

And the parenting plan went into effect in March. Anything prior to that shouldnt be counted as "in a row" because that was all agreed upon as the situation developed. She was not able to have him Thanksgiving last year, she had him the following day.

Not so bad:

We had O call her first thing Thursday morning to say hi and tell her he loved her. He happened to tell her all about our trip up north to the polar express that we took the day before, oh well, lol.

No issues really. She still hasnt called for the paperwork, and Eric put it very nicely that she needs to do that asap if she wants us to pay his insurance.

Other than that, we had a fantastic thanksgiving with O! I went out that night and did the black friday shopping, combined with sales and coupons I spent about 100 bucks on 300 dollars worth of stuff! Our tree is up. The day that his mom was picking him up he came up to me and said, "Thank you so much for the best week I have ever had in my whole life!"

Glad it went well! Why is it an issue that he told her about what you all did? Just curious.

They were planning to take him to that at a later date and she found out about it and announced they might do that on her time before Jenn and Eric got a chance to take him so they moved up the date.

Not exactly. lol

I just felt bad because he was calling to talk to her and wish her a happy thanksgiving, but he ended up telling her all about how much fun we had. I just feel bad when we do fun things because he has said to me before, "I wonder why my mom doesnt take me to do fun stuff like you guys do." I genuinely feel bad when he brags to her about it.

Ah got it! But as a mom, I hope she's happy that he's having fun.

My mistake. I thought she was the one nabbing outings. Sometimes it's hard to match the crazy to the poster.

One thing we tried to stress to the kids is that everyone loves them but everyone's circumstances are different.

can you maybe help him understand 1 income vs 2? on his level at least. When I was ingle my kids knew we didn't get to so as much fun stuff because mom's money had ot pay the bills and so on. they were about his age and they seemed to get it. and it wasn't a big deal,and it helps them learn to appreciate things

We did. The day we asked him if he had a fun weekend, (the week we had him prior to this last one,) he said Yeah I had tons of fun. So then Eric said see I might not always be here at night when I have to work but dont we make up for it on the weekend and have an awesome family fun time? And he said, "Yeah. I wonder why my mom never does fun things for me..."

We answered, "Spending time with her is fun for her and probably fun for you. You have to remember she's in school right now, and doesn't have a lot of extra money since she isn't working, I would say its safe to say any extra money she has goes towards keeping that bully of your full since you hit this growth spurt!" And he giggled.

We don't ever put her down. When it comes down to it shes his mom and she is trying as best as she can in her opinion.
