Speaking of double standards, it's not just dads that are dead-beat parents. My kids live with me 5 or 6 days a week, I don't get a dime from my ex, but she's always bragging on facebook about how she's such a great mom because she called and talked to our son the day before his birthday. Not on his birthday, just the day before. And she's missed his last two birthdays because that's the day she married hubby number 3.
She did make sure to call on Father's Day, though, so my kids could talk to their d-bag step-dad.
A. That really sucks, I feel bad for your kids. Fortunately, they have a dad who can take care of them for the majority of the week. :)
B. You just reminded me of a certain type of person I hate. Rich ******* who do NOTHING for the family, her home, career, husband, etc. (I'm sure there are men like this too, I just don't see them on reality shows).
I'm talking about the women who leave nannies to raise their kids, who don't work, who don't cook, who don't clean, etc. What the **** do they contribute to a relationship? What are they even TRYING to contribute? Spending time sitting on a beach or shopping for clothes doesn't do crap for your family.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for parents being able to have time to themselves. It's just these parents that literally contribute nothing
to the family (or even household) that drive me crazy.
