Men are not the only

deadbeats.

"She" can be one too! When you look at the deadbeat sites, ask yourself if you're behaving like a deadbeat, and remember that men are victims of  "her" deadbeat  mentality also. Whether you are a custodial parent, a non-custodial parent, a first wife, a second wife, a girlfriend, a boyfriend, ask yourself if you're behaving in the best interest of the child.

 

  

 

 

6/2000

Dh won custody summer '99. A year later at 8th grade graduation, dh has to be out of town on business. We plan a large slumber party to celebrate graduation. I again plan for any eventuality. 

If there's a problem with bm or her parents, we'll call the police, leave, meet up at Starbucks... 

My girls, their friends, ss and I arrive. We spot bm and her parents stalking us trying to decide what to do. We walk towards them. 

As ss visits with them, I spot 2 of his teachers and run over to ask ss to get a pic with them. Grandma, increasingly angry, tries to stop me. I persist wanting to take advantage of the moment. As ss waits for his teachers to be free, I walk over to bm to ask her if she wants to meet his teachers. She looks apprehensively at her mother and replies tersely, "I already met them!" I look at her puzzled, "No, one of them is new." She repeats no.  *shrug* No skin off my nose. 

As we go in the auditorium ss tells me he must meet bm and her parents at the tree. My 15yo hears, tells her friends. They'll meet us there too. Bm and her parents end up in the auditorium on the side ss does not come in and exit from. Only 3 from each family are allowed to attend. My 12yo, her girlfriend and I attend.  

Once ss walks down from the stage, I watch him looking over the auditorium. He spots his mom and happily waves. I realize again that he does love her. He spots me. We exit. 

His 15yo stepsister and her friends help him quickly strip from his gown, turn it in for him, and we all go to the tree. 

Ss visits with bm and her parents, then ss approaches me saying they want to take him out for ice cream. I reply, "Do you want to?" He's in that tense mood, "Of course I do!" I reply, "Ok." and walk over to talk to bm.  

I realize grandma wants to be in charge, but I always choose to deal with bm first. I sense all the tug o war I'd felt from bm and grandma before the graduation has been replaced with appropriate behavior - for the moment. It reminds me of what I've learned - you teach people how to treat you by how you treat them. She and I arrange that ss can go for ice cream, and he'll be back in an hour for the graduation party at our home. 

He is.
