So annoyed!
Ok so for years we've been dealing with dh's exr telling him 2 days in advance when his dd's have a significant event (dance recital, school play, etc) - things that are scheduled well in advance. For those that don't know she moved the girls 4 hours away from dh. So for him to get to these events, it takes some planning not to mention money for gas, food & hotel room. He works 1 weekend a month & more often than not when she tells him of the event he is working & he can't change it that close. If he had advance notice, he could switch with someone.

So yesterday she calls & says "My sister is flying into Chicago so I'll be in for the weekend. I'm dropping Eloise off with you" :o Really????? Your sister's flying in from Texas & you didn't know this weeks ago? Of course we can't say no because we haven't seen dsd since New Years. We love her & we miss her but.......

This is the worst weekend EVER! It's Lucy's dance recital & she's in all 3 shows this year. So she & I will be gone from 10am-10pm on Saturday plus from 12:30-5 on Sunday. I'm required to work backstage for 2 shows. The recital is held in a theater that is 45 minutes from our house.

Did I mention that I had to buy the tickets in May????? They're $15 per ticket (they put on a really good, professional grade show). Of course I don't have a ticket for dsd because I didn't know she was coming. It's not so much about the cost but I don't know if we can get a ticket for the show we're going to. It's the Saturday night one and I don't know if they are sold out. Plus even if we can that means that I'll have to sit alone & not with my family. MIL is coming from out of town to see the show too. It was MIL, dh, Noah & me originally. Plus I'm really honked off because I had my act together this year & got my ticket order in right away & we got awesome seats! Now because of this I'll have to sit by myself in a crappy seat (if I can get one) to watch MY only dd's dance recital. http://www.theparentingpod.com/phpBB...ilies/cuss.gif http://www.theparentingpod.com/phpBB...nsored-015.gif

How inconsiderate of bm. :angry2: I'm sorry - I would be really annoyed too.

Re: So annoyed!
Wait, why doesn't DSD get to see her Aunt who's visiting from Texas? I'm sorry that she's such an insensitive witch.

Re: So annoyed!
I had the same question Rachel. I'm assuming bio mom wants to go out partying. She's that way & a 13 year old will drag her down.

Re: So annoyed!
She's something else. BM used to do stuff like that. Try to be all last minute so that DH couldn't get his scheduled visits with her. I hated that crap. It's nice to know parting takes precedence over having your child see their aunt.

Re: So annoyed!
Well it's all a bit confusing, we're not even sure the aunt was here. According to dh that was the 1st story & then there was another story about it being bio mom's birthday weekend. Who knows?

She did have her latest boyfriend with her & they ended up leaving earlier on Sunday because he was throwing up :lol: Gotta love karmic justice!

Anyway, it was rough on dd so I put my footdown & said this can't happen again next year. I told him to make it clear to his ex that we can't take dsd on recital weekend. DD only sees her 3-4 times a year & adores her. Sunday dd was a mess at her recital because she was tired & was missing her sister.

BTW: MIL found out about it the week before. So she knew before we did. She didn't say anything because she assumed we knew about it. So crazy!
