Dd's stepmom and bio-dad just had their first child together. As soon as I heard it was going to be a girl, I was afraid that now that they had their "own" dd, they'd start neglecting mine, but I had really really hoped I was just being paranoid. Unfortunately, it looks like I may not have been far off.
Baby C was born last Monday. I swallowed my jealousy (I really want another baby, dh is dragging his feet), bought presents, took dd to the hospital to see M (stepmom) and baby. She IS an awful cute little thing! :LOL
So far R (bio-dad) has already missed Margaret's class play. I mostly understand that, it was only 2 days after Baby C was born. I think M could have handled it, seeing as the hospital has a nursery that she nonchantly sent the baby off to at her whim, but that's another story. Tonight is Margaret's very first gymnastics "meet". It's really just a performance, kids this young aren't scored or anything, but she's SO excited. She has a new leotard, we are going to do her hair up nice, all the grandparents are coming, etc. But guess who just called and said he isn't coming?? Margaret is crushed. She's pretending she's not, but she's moping around with her hair over her face so we won't see her crying.
His excuse is that his other child (also C) hasn't met Baby C yet, and is supposed to tonight, because it's his weekend. Ok, you know what? It's not my fault and it's REALLY not dd's fault that you were too chicken
to tell C's mother that M had the baby, thereby making this the first chance C has to see the baby. I am furious. I just want to
out of this rat
