A Reminder
« on: January 28, 2020, 02:10:08 AM »
Iíve decided to stay until I get both kids to college in order to shield DD from uBPD-MIL and -H. But, Iíve been reading more literature lately about passive aggressive behavior and verbal abuse. A recurring theme is that kids will be happier post divorce and itís caused me to question that decision. Then  I got a reminder.
DD the younger went to a slumber party.  It had been the topic of much discussion, as these things are.  I dropped her off before H got home.  The next morning as I went I pick her up I said something along the lines of: Iíll be back in a few minutes and Iíll have a kid with me. He asked me to repeat myself so I did. Got the standard answer: ďokĒ and off I went.
That evening, DD the older told me that after I left this morning H found her and asked where Iíd gone. He didnít know that DD the younger was at a sleepover.  :sadno: How do you not notice your child isnít at home?!!
ďYou held me down, but I got up.
Get ready, Ďcause Iíve had enough.Ē

Lauren17 - oh wow that is disheartening. I guess you don't notice children are gone for the night when you have don't have responsibility to engage with them and one hasn't been paying attention to what is going on in their own home. :upsidedown:
