I didn't have time to post over the weekend. But Dh's ex called on Thursday to tell him the girls' dance recital was this weekend. Yup. Just a meer 2 days away. They live 4 hours away. That's 8 hours of driving plus a hotel stay. Seriously???? 2 days notice???I guess he rippped into her said "you didn't know this last week" I'm like "she knew this months ago" My dd dances & we know in SEPTEMBER what weekend the recital is the following JUNE. These events take planning. They aren't thrown together in a week.Of course, dh wasn't able to go. She does this to him all the time. I'm sure she'll tell his dds that he wasn't interested and that his new family is more important That's her typical game. Just sucks!

Ugh what a pain. Is there a way that he can find out without her having to tell him?

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

The kids are 13 & 17 so old enough to inform him. But bio mom has played this game since they moved 6 years ago. She likes to set him up for failure ... "your dad can't be there because he's with his other family" etc. Very annoying since she cheated on him & she moved his kids away. But she wanted him waiting in the wings like a lap dog but instead he met me. She's mad he moved on.

Anyway, the oldest is just like her mother and the youngest can't breath without the mom or sister's permission. I kid you not.

Ugh, I'm sorry. How infuriating, and you're absolutely right that it's an intentional set up for failure. Our bm does something similar - will drop events on us with next to no notice that either require significant traveling, high cost to have all of the kids attend or both, and then make a lot of snarky comments about how we just don't care about the events and that's why we don't go to them. It's stupid.

And you're right - when I danced our recitals were booked about 6 months in advance.

Thank you to Babydoll213 for my fabulous siggie!
