BM wants to blindly choose a counselor

1dad4kids's picture

So BM comes back with another counselor in the same office as the one that declined- who has the same credentials. She also said another counselor in our city who is not experienced in the required theory. That's- whatever. 

The real kicker is, BM's lawyer said they haven't qualified the counselors because they asked DH not to do that until they had agreed on prerequisite. 

Update - DH gave SD15 the option to leave

So after some talks DH learned from BM that SD15 acts the same way at her home. Sounds like BM actually comes down on SD15 more than we ever have for it.

convo between DH and SD15:

DH: have you put some thought into what you want

SD15: it's no my choice it's BM's

DH: so if you got to choose you'd pick going to live with BM instead of just trying to be nice to us the 15 minutes a day you see us?

SD15: yup

DH: ok *then walked away

DH and BM talked and BM offered to let SD15 stay for a couple months to see how it goes. 

Will she or won’t she

Since there has been a number of failure to launch posts, I'm taking bets over here.  

Oldest Sd is supposed to be off to university in less than 2 weeks.  However, the plot has thickened!


By way of a backstory, BM has been out of work since early February.  Not at all COVID related - she was let go long before jobs started disappearing due to the pandemic.  As she worked for my former employer, it took about 2 seconds to find out she was let go for being incompetent.  Frankly, I was surprised she lasted as long as she did.


Well that is about SS...aka The Great White Rapper (GWR)

An update on SS...aka GWR..who peaced out and went to Beaver's house little over a year ago.

GWR...apsires to be a the next Great White Rapper...despite not knowing a lick about music, can't pay any instruments, mumbles when he speaks (drives me INSANE) and has a limited grasp on the English language.  GWR also has no desire to learn any music, instruments or the English languge.  Not to mention in addition to the mumbling he speaks...SLLLOOOOOOWWWWWLLLY, like Beaver.

OT - What to write in card after a suicide a year ago

futurestepmomnowstepgf's picture

I am back for just some advice unrelated to step life. My cousin committed sucide a year ago and she was 17. I am sending a thinking of you card to my uncle and aunt and I have not a clue what to write in it. Anyone have any ideas? My parents are moving my sister into college today and I really don't want to have them thinking about today (it was a year ago today) when trying to help my sister/keep her mind off of it. I am sending it today, so it will be late unfortunately. The first time I tried to buy the card I got really upset and walked out of the store.

First blog. Need to know if I'm crazy or not for my thoughts.

Ok, here goes nothin'. So I started seeing my fiance 3 years ago. I had known her previously but we had never really hung out exclusively. We decided to go out and hit it off, the rest is history. I started going over to her place to hang out on the weekends mostly (I don't go out during the work week). I met her daughter who was 6 at the time and the kid seemed cool enough. And I did the new boyfriend thing and played nerf guns and superheroes with her really with my intentions being that she would see that I'm not a bad guy.

So to catch you all up on my SUPER fabulous life... I play video games. A lot lately... One in particular online game I have a guild in.  Which is great.  My guild, like pretty well every other guild is the game, is primarily male, which is no biggie at all.

That's just eh background, onto the issue at hand:

Manipulative 16 yo Step Daughter

My SD came out to us as a lesbian around 8 months ago. I have no issue with it, have gay friends and have been involved in the queer scene my entire life as a hairstylist. We had a fight a few months ago over me taking to her sister about her sexuality and I apologized for it. I questioned if it was a phase.
