What an immature bitch. I’m so sorry you have to deal with her.

Are you required to have SS talk on the phone with her or is that just something you do to be nice? Because honestly, this woman sounds toxic as hell and I see no reason why SS should have any contact with her at all. Period. She’s clearly an unfit mom and she’s jealous of the good life you and Fiance give her son – a life she couldn’t give him herself – so she’s taking it out on you all in petty ways. If possible, I’d cut off all contact with her. She’s nothing but a bad influence and a poor excuse for a human being.

and promptly sent her a nasty text

as frustrating it is dealing with the sad excuse of a person do not to this, you are only giving her ammunition if she wanted to cause you grief

but great going on raising a good kid – wishing the best to your family!

First of all, let me tell you that you are an awesome person for stepping in to help raise your stepson. 

Second, she sounds like a lunatic.  Unfortunately, I doubt there’s any way to get rid of her from your lives 100%.  I know first hand how tough it is to deal with a toxic parent.  The only thing I can say is try your best to ignore her, don’t give her anything to continue the conflict…because I assume she feeds on that type of thing.  I wish I had more advice.  Like I said, I understand how irritating and stressful someone like that can be. 

Keep your chin up.  Your stepson will know who was there for him when he gets older.

I will say that since he is at such a young age anything that she says now is just a temporary influence. Keep taht in mind. You just need to reinforce things and it shuld no longer be a problem. I have been dealing with similar issues with my own mother. If he spends any time with her I have to deprogram him afterwards. Since he is not actually spending time with her the damage should be minimal.

Well, I kinda hope what happend to my cousins biomom happens to your’s…she eventually got herself thrown in prison. Well, guess what? They don’t have to deal with her anymore and my wonderful aunt who deals with all the stepkids as if they were her own does not have to worry about that nutjob anymore.

Trust me, at some point your SS will grow up and see his mom for who she really is and see you for everything youve done for him. It’s a matter of time–this will get better. promise. My cousins went through hell as kids with their biomom and eventually they grew up and decided that their stepmom (my aunt) was the only “mom” they ever had and ever needed!
