Some days...

Monday, November 19, 2007

Some days I feel bad because my step-daughter has no idea how much we care about her, love her, and enjoy having her around. She is going to go back to her mom's tonight and tomorrow because she is mad at her dad.

The reason? He always "yells" at her.

This of course is not true. He asks her questions about where she needs to go, who will be there, when she needs a ride, etc. All things she should know about the activities she is participating in---however her answer is always, "I don't know." He asked her two weeks ago to find out about a trip her hockey team is taking to a tournament in Grand Rapids, MN. FAR AWAY FROM HOME ALL WEEKEND. She had NO details, nothing. He told her to find out before she came back to our house....nope, nada, nothing.

She sometimes seems to live in a world of her own I call Sarahfairyland.

In her head it goes: Stuff will just magically work out, I do not have to do anything, la ti da!

Anyway, it makes my husband sad when she acts this way. I do not like to see him sad...I gave him a hug and said, "It's hard when you are the parent."

My husband's ex, DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND SHE IS A GOOD MOM, but she tries too hard to be the buddy. Not good, but it is her choice.

Oh well, we will survive.
