That is such an awful situation — so frustrating, because you cannot just cut off contact because of the girls.  What do they think about their mother?

Ah I have no advice and have no real way to empathise.

 

But I am very sorry that you’re dealing with someone like this, you sound like a lovely level-headed woman and I wish you all the best in your future and relationship.

 

<3 Hope things get a little easier soon

What a tough situation but it sounds like you are handling it great! Those girls are very lucky to have you.

That must be so incredibly frustrating to deal with. What a horrible woman! Yell

You didn’t ask for advice here, and I gotta say it doesn’t sound like you need any. It sounds like you’ve done all the right things, and have been an awesome mom to the girls. You’re absolutely right to not bad-mouth her to the kids, and as they get older, the girls are going to see on their own how amazing you’ve been to step up and be there for them as a gracious, caring, loving role model. Keep doing what you’re doing, as the ex and your husband gradually lose all these financial ties hopefully you’ll hear from her less and less!

So sorry you are going through this. I would try to change the mode of communication to email and texts. If she wants to talk to the girls she can text you and the girls can call her back. You don’t deserve this kind of abuse.

@TexasSpringBride:  You seem to be doing everything right by those girls. it’s good to encourage them to still love their mom and to spare them the hurt of thinking that she doesn’t care when her actions say that she doesnt. As a child that had a not so great father, and a wonderful step father who handled things exactly as you are, I can say that as much as I will always love my biological dad, I did grow up and I did see him for what he was and I was left to form my own opinion. I not only watched my mother and step dad have to deal with my dads antics, but I also watched my step dad deal with his crazy ex-wife and the terrible things she would try and do. Keep doing what your doing and things will work out, people like his ex wife never win in the long run.

the poor girls….I can’t even begin to imagine how it would feel to have a mother who doesn’t care about you the way a mother should.

thank goodness life has a way of  delivering you something that you  truely need in life….those girls needed a mother who loves them….and they were given you.

I’m sorry that you have to deal with this women….but I guess the upside is that you have a beautiful family and a really wonderful husband.

I can totally understand your frustration…. if i was you, I’d want to bang her head on the table too!!!

I just want to say, your statement that “she isnt required to pay child support because nice guy that husband is doesnt feel like we need the money because we make more than enough” is not true.  She doesn’t pay child support because your husband has sole legal and physical custody.  

I am sorry you are having a hard time with her.
