Ugh. I am so aggravated. I know I shouldn’t be, but I am. This morning my stepdaughter got dropped off and nothing in her folder (received by her mother at the Open House last night) was returned or filled out. She said it hadn’t even been gone through. Every year I fill out ALL of the paperwork the very first night I get it and make sure it is turned in the next day. This is the first year she got the folder. And wouldn’t you know…bag, completely empty. Had she read the information she would have at least seen that lunched needed to be paid for (um, duh). Was any money sent with her? No. So like always, I wrote out the check and made sure she has 30 lunches in the bank. That is 60 bucks by the way. I purchased ALL of her school supplies. I purchased her gym shoes and made sure she had everything she needed for school. AS I DO EVERY YEAR.
She had one shot to do ONE goddamn thing and couldn’t do it. Do you know how irritated that makes me??
Then I look at something my step daughter did in school. The question asked for her favorite people…she writes “Mom & Dad”. Yea, very sweet and all. But it is getting so tiring to be completely overlooked and ignored when I am really the only one who does anything for her. And have been for 9 years. I am sick of it.
Another question asked if she had siblings. She answered “half-sister”. Half sister?? She has never ONCE referred to or called Cassidy her HALF sister. I have never heard that term come out of her mouth. In fact, when she talks about people in her mother’s boyfriend’s family (the one she has now, I mean..they change frequently) she calls them her cousins. So, people who have NO relations whatsoever are cousins but suddenly she has to make the clarification of “half sister”. I don’t get it.
