I'm just going to vent tonight because my husband PISSED ME OFF! I love him and he and I have a wonderful relationship, without kids. :) He has one daughter, I have 3. He favors his daughter over my children on a daily bases. Listen we all love our own children more then any stepchild but most of us have the same rules and don't show those feelings around the stepchild. We want them to think their just as special as our own. My stepdaughter is extremely disrecpectful to my husband, yet he NEVER disciplines her or follows through on punishment. So today my daughter wasn't allowed a play date over after-school because my husband claimed she disrespected him over the weekend. He works from home, I work out of the house. So my daughter called me at work and I said no play date. When I ask my husband how did my daughter disrespect him, he said ask her. So I did, she had no idea but did tell me Jessie, his daughter, made fun of him on the Wee game last night, so I did too but we were joking. She said he yelled at me for calling him a bully but did not yell at his daughter. I spoke again and said listen, Sabrins doesn't understand how she disrespected you. Can you please tell me. He couldn't give me an answer. His answer was "she's said something in the past, I don't remember". Well that was the wrong answer for me. SO I exploded. I told him I had enough of him talking and threating his daughter one way and mine another. I know the real reason he didn't want my daughter to have a play date. He works out of the basement and we have the Wee game system. He's been allowing his daughter to play everyday after school, yet if my kids go to play while he's home. The answer is sometimes yes but mostly NO. Now if he says no to my children they listen. They accept the answer, unlike his daughter who will whine for an hour until he says yes. So I told him tonight when I go to work each day I will be taking the game systems with me. No one will be playing anything until I get home at 6pm. So the rules will be the same for all. Do you think I'm being childish. I have full intentions of following through. As far as him favoring his daughter in front of mine I'm sure it'll go on forever but what I can control I plan on controlling.
