I should have listened to my sister.
She told me to never get involved with a man with small children.
But of course.. me thinking I know everything... didn't listen.
Well, I got into this relationship with a man that I love dearly.
We won't EVEN talk about his ex wife who needs a good slap upside that ugly head of hers...
It's the constant spending of money. The wasting of money that kills me. Maybe because I have very little money of my own and very little to provide for my own nearly grown children that I see it as so wasteful. Whatever they want? They get it. Even if they don't ask for it? Or want it? He buys it. I have literally seen hundreds of dollars being spent on nothing. and everything. It makes me sick to my stomach.
I really don't feel it is jealousy on my part. I just see it as so wasteful and so damaging to the children.
I finally told him that I feel that he is really doing his kids a disservice..that NO ONE is going to be able to please them when they are adults. They will never be happy because no one will be able to provide for them like this.
They are spoiled rotten little children who feel that they "deserve" so much...
They are disrespectful and it sucks.
I can't say too much as I am just a "girlfriend"...and no one wants to hear someone else say something about their parenting.. so I am stuck.
P.S. I do not proclaim to be a perfect parent by any means. I am sure I have made my fair share of mistakes, too.
