Stepmom2Be September 4th, 2013 11:02 PM

So O is at his moms house till Sunday. He't got his phone back, all is well with the world. I haven't spoken to BM except to text her that he had a bit of a sore throat on Sunday but no fever because she refused to come to the door like an adult to pick him up.


O is currently texting me. It is 10pm on a school night. He wakes up at like 6:30am to get ready and leave her house to barely make it to school on time. I texted him back and said, "Buddy I want you to be real honest with me. Are you allowed to be using your phone right now or are you supposed to be in bed? It's pretty late." And all the sudden I'm not getting any texts from him.

I'm not about to text his mom because if she IS letting him stay up this late she's going to think I am prying into her time with O and judging her parenting. Hopefully he made the right choice to put the phone down and go to bed. I don't want him to not trust me or not text me because I LOVE hearing from him when he's at his moms house. It makes the week go by faster.

Re: Conflicted
When he's with you next, I'd talk about the right times to call - like not when he's supposed to be in bed. Of course letting him know that he can always contact you if there is an emergency or something is wrong. But he has to do his chatting text during appropriate times.

Re: Conflicted
If he stopped, I'd probably assume he made the right choice and leave it alone. Like you said, you don't want her to assume you are judging her parenting or anything, and you want O to know that he can trust you and that it's okay to contact you in an emergency, at any time. I like the idea of talking to him about it on your time :)

Re: Conflicted
I wouldn't say anything to his mom or she may take the phone away and lose it again!

I think I would leave it alone. You let him know you didn't think he should be up so late, he stopped texting at that point. I think its handled.

He texted me this morning at 6:45 and said "I told my mom can I please stay up a little later so i can text my favorite stepmom in the world and she said yes but then you are going to bed."

Interesting.... lol

He makes my heart happy. I love him :) And yeah we didnt mention to her. We asked him and he swears he did not sneak the phone in his room so we'll leave it at that!
