CPS and Acting out at Mommy’s House

So, again been a while since I posted. I kinda only post when I need to vent. Sorry if you are looking for something happy and cheery about having a step-child, I will say when I don’t post it is going pretty good.

To bring ya’ll up to speed. KR has been spending more time with us. On the weekends we have her, on Wednesday we pick her up at 4 pm and then drop her off on Sunday at 6 pm.  She has stopped having as many meltdowns. She has started to cling to her mom’s ex-boyfriend, whom still lives there cause of the kids. We think it is a little fishy with how attached she is to him.

So now part one of the DRAMA!

KR’s mom has been locking the kids in their bedroom, when they are in trouble. My husband went to pick up KR and saw her locked in her room in timeout, she was kicking the door and broke the frame. Her spoke to her mother and told her she shouldn’t have it that way and should turn it back.  KR only has meltdowns now when we pick her up, she is SCREAMING for her mom’s ex. (weird right?) Which is why she was in trouble. Also she is wanting to stay to play with the little girl next door.

KR’s mom had DCS (CPS) called on her, probably for locking the kids in their room (not for sure I didn’t call). Well she sent my husband a message two days ago, telling him KR would not be spending extra time with him (We will get more to this in part two of the drama). This text ended in a fight. Yesterday, she told him she wanted to sit down and talk. He brought his dad to be a witness.

She started off my saying the DCS told her I CALLED and told them she was beating her kids. My father-in-law told her DCS wouldn’t tell her that and to stop lying about it. My husband said that she could look through my phone and SEE FOR HERSELF that I didn’t call. Then she started saying that her best friend’s ex probably called. She is fishing for someone, instead of taking responsibility of doing something wrong. She says they spent 4 days cleaning a less than 900 sq ft trailer to prepare for DCS, since they were stupid and scheduled an appointment to visit. Oh well her youngest will sing like a canary to them.

Now to part two of the drama.

KR has been acting out badly (Cursing, Hitting, Back Talk, etc..) at her mom’s house. Now at our house she acts like a 5 year old (her birthday was last weekend). Three factors have changed since she started acting out; mommy’s boyfriend (now ex), KR’s new friend next door and KR spending more time with us.  Back to that text I was talking about earlier. She said that she thinks KR isn’t ready to stay with us that long at our house and that that is why she is acting out over there. IF that was the case wouldn’t she act out over here too? Since she was letting us have the extra time, we can’t really argue about her taking that time away. I really don’t think it will be long before she reinstates that. We have seen her hitting her mom’s ex and her mom laughing at it. I don’t know if she realizes that is encouraging that behavior.

Oh and her mom thinks we are idiots. She blocked us from her old facebook and made a new one expecting us to buy that she only has us as friends and we can still see there is an old profile, just can’t click on it. She has her party profile and her I am a great mom profile.

So this is my life right now!


Melt Downs

So it has been a while, since I posted. We have had an  okay time and not much to report until recently. We offered that if my step-daughter WANTED to spend the night on Wednesday she could, just depending on our work schedules. Well since this has been offered her mom has been using this every week. It is another day to party. I know she isn’t wanting to stay cause she is screaming she doesn’t want to leave. Which I suspect is because she constantly is being told by her mom that we can take her and that she doesn’t want her. I believe that she is scared she will never come home. 

So this past weekend when we picked her up, she was drink Mountain Dew and eating Hot Cheetos. Many times she has had an upset stomach from Hot Cheetos, but yet her mom gave them to her. At bedtime we had a huge melt down and she was wanting to come home. Her mom was out partying already, so this wasn’t possible. I found out that EVERY night at her mom’s house she does this, this is the first time she has ever done this at our house. This was also the first time she had Mountain Dew right before we picked her up. We do not allow caffeine for the kids at our house.

We than kept her the next day cause we had her this weekend anyways. So we thought it would be since less to take her home and then pick her up the next day. During this time she kept talking about her siblings, one I had never meet or heard of. So I asked her about them and she didn’t even know them, just they were her brother. Her mom’s cousin is a friend of mine, so I asked her, cause she should know and she didn’t. Her cousin then went on a rampage cause her mom had told us a lie about a miscarriage. Her cousin got the truth that is was a lie she filled the kids heads with.

The next 2 days went pretty uneventful, She did melt down again on Friday cause she didn’t get to play Polly Pocket before bed. So I set an alarm and had my husband put her to bed. Saturday was uneventful. Then Sunday she started to get mouthy and rude. I grew up that rudeness is not acceptable. Though she is getting told if she does the same thing is done again she will be put in timeout.

Well I will update on the soap opera of my life her in a few weeks.
