I can't believe that audacity of my step kids mum. As some of you will know we are in the middle of a custody batte. Long story so I won't go into it but we really are the better parents for the twins. Anyway we had the kids for the first time in 4 yrs this past week. (the mother took off with them) It was going amazingly well until she rang them and used trigger words to try to make them homesick. We emailed her to say please don't upset the boys when they are trying to adjust to a brand new situation and she went off. The letter would have gone through the lawyers but as they are on holiday at the moment we had to act threre and then as she had upset the boys. Anyway before this had happened she had said to us that we could have them for another week these summer holidays. She has now retracted that as she said we were doing too much with them????? we were taking them to the beach, park, skatepark, pools, zoo, etc. She said that we were being materialistic with them. I gave her a list of how much everything cost and the ONLY thing that cost us all week was the zoo. I am aware that she is probably scared but why use the children. They had an amazing time as they live way out in the middle of no where where there is NOTHING so coming to us was a huge treat for them. Why take this away from them and punish us for giving the boys quality time. We are an active family anyway so it wasn't anything out of the norm for us to go to these places. The beach is around the corner we are surrounded in parks and the pool is just up the road. Because of her morbid obesity she doesn't leave the house....that is NOT our fault OR the boys. I am just so angry for them. They were looking forward to coming back and now she has put a stop to it. She has said that we need to sort it out in councilling through the courts. SORT OUT WHAT???? does she expect US to sit all day watching cooking shows on tv which is what the kids said to us. It is unbelievable and I really feel for them. I just needed to get this off my chest. I am angry and hurt and only want what is best for those little boys. They deserve so much better than this. grrrrrrrrrr .....thanks for those who took the time to listen to me vent.
