To Tell my mother how disgusted I was with her(64 Posts)
So we all know my mother. She's still sleeping with the married man who was a wife and a 7 year old daughter. Who is clearly taking her for a ride and for all the money she's got
His 7 year old daughter is aware of the affair and they've both told her to keep quite about it and she's his "special friend" they've been playing happy families with her and it's disgusting.
She went on holiday a couple of weeks witch was arranged with her friend. 3 days before every day she swore blind she'd come see me and DS every day she failed to show. She even left her friend to get travel up to the airport on her own because the married man she's shagging wanted to take her. She promised to call us before she boarded, I phoned to find she was on the plane and 'forgot' about calling DS to say bye.
She promised to text us whilst she was there, turns out half way through her holiday her phone provider cut her phone off because she'd ran an enormous bill and they thought it'd been lost or stolen, yet never text us once not even on my DS's birthday.
She landed today didn't even get a text to say she'd landed married man had picked her up and she left her friend at the airport and went home with him.
Married man had come to her house where my brother lives every day telling him to do this or that, not to have his music playing or not to have friends round even not to have the heating on! She came home straight away and got in bed with him and has laid there all day because "he's not well"
After trying to get hold of her all day she finally answered she lied and said her phone wasn't working despite the fact it went to voicemail and tells you she's declined your call! She promised to be here by 6 as DS's goes to bed at that time.
6pm DS's is in bed and I've turned the phone off to get into my flat I finally get through at 6:30 and she tells me that she "forgot" and she'd come round now I told her to forget it and I was disgusted that she'd happily forget her own children and grandchild because he was round, it's the 4th time she'd promise to see DS and failed. The phone was off and I've had enough of her. The fact that she'd let DS down again was enough I told her I was disgusted with what she was doing and I have lost all respect for her, I was ashamed that my mother was now sleeping with some other mothers husband whilst she's thinking he's at work and she looks after her daughter! If he was that unwell he should be at home with his wife and daughter not in his mistress's bed. She said she fine with that and I said I wasn't, I am completely done with her she's crossed a line by forcing that child to lie to her mother and another line by promising she's be here when she was only going to come when he'd left.
Was I bu to say this? I'm soo pissed now that I just needed a rant. How dare she and this febal excuse of a man force a 7 year old to lie to her own mother about the fact she's sleeping with this horrid woman and then go out to play happy families with her whilst she's happily leaving her own kids and not bothering with them.
Do you know his name and roughly where he lives, there are several ways of finding her without resorting to FB (although that can have its uses).
How old is your DB? Could he do some digging to find out his address?
I only know her and his first name and that he used to live by us and i think she lives near Birmingham
He's 20 so could do
I think you need to ask less of her. You will be much less dissapointed.
Disconnect from her world, you will be happier.
I can see why you've lost all respect for her. That is disgusting behaviour and they both own it.
What did your mum say OP? Has see always been so selfish?
Why name change then give us your old name?
Take a step back from your Mum. It wasn't the end of the world that she didn't come see you after her holiday was it? She knows she is dong wrong but doesn't care enough to not misbehave
I agree OP, she is being disgusting.
Once again, the people to feel sorry for are the children.
I feel sorry for you too OP, I don't just mean the little children, she is your mum and acting like an ass.
Has she always been like this or do you think its one last stab at being young?
My Mum said "okay then". Didn't care. Completely and utterly selfish
I didn't NC for security reasons I changed because I wanted a new one so it didn't matter if you knew my name
There is a lot of ground between being involved with your DM as you are now and going NC. Why don't you try taking a huge step back from her but not actually going NC. There is no need for your DS to be continually let down by her unless you tell him that he is being let down (IYSWIM).
The affair is crap and sordid and I would tell her that you don't won't to discuss it.
I wouldn't get involved with all her drama, stop discussing her with third parties and stop with the texting etc. If you want a moan then come on MN but otherwise try to remove yourself from it all.
There is no step back with her. The last two time's she comes round to see DS she spent a total of 10 minutes out of 3 hours not on the phone to married man, she paid him no attention and just sat on my sofa on the phone to the point I put him to bed and asked her to leave.
She will only talk about him, what they've been doing, what he said she should do regarding her house (currently he's told her to sell her three bedroom semi-detached house to by my DB of 20 with no job a 1 bedroom flat and she can move somewhere where he can come round whenever) her car, my car, my house, he even tells me what to do with my DS in regard to feeding him, playing with him, bathing etc.
With her comes him. I don't text, call, facetime etc with her anymore because she'll mostly only reply to him and ignore you.
I do not blame you for being disgusted with her. Disengage from her, her behaviour is clearly hurting you and your son.
omg... that poor 7 year old. She's going to be so messed up from all this. You really should tell to at least contain some of the damage...
The thing is she use to be one of them woman that needed a man like a bullet in the head, she was completely independent, knew where every penny went and on what, had a very good job and the car of her dreams.
She's now a woman who can't even wipe her own arse without his say so, she's always on the phone to him, can't be apart from him, she changed all her bank info and he has access to her cards and pin numbers, she's barely any money left and quit two jobs in the space of 3 months because "they were telling her what to do?! and 'nobody' tells her what to do" she got married man a job and he's promised to get her a bigger and better one but who'd employ someone who's quit two jobs in three months because they don't want to be told what to do.
Was she more attentive to you before the married man was on the scene?
She sounds like she was rather independent before he came along. However could it be that he is making her dependant on him so as to abuse her financially?
Does she have friends that she sees regularly like the friend she went on holiday with, who share your concerns and would speak to her - it might have more impact coming from them?
I think your right to disengage somewhat, just until she comes out of the lust fog she appears to be in. Their fairytalr cheating romance won't last forever, and it's awful the pressure they are placing on a 7yo's shoulders.
Is there a large age gap with them? I know it doesn't really matter but it seems strange that a married man with a 7yo (I'm thinking 30/40's?) is interested in a woman with grandchildren. I know women can be grandmas young but I don't know why but I can't help but think like 50/60's? Just trying to picture it better. Sorry if this is irrelevant or I've offended anyone!
Nobody knows his last name to tell her wife
She and Married Man have told DB they don't need him anymore, it's not his house married man will move in and he'll have to move out. They could just take everything and leave him on his own.
He threatened to beat him up and have him arrested.
Yeah she saw us about 3/4 times a week then as soon as she met him stopped going to the gym, seeing friends and family everything.
It's 5 years he's 40 she's 45
I think you need to take some time away from your mother OP. It'll make your life a lot less stressful. Just disengage a little, leave her to make her own sorry mess.
How old is your brother? Will he be ok to find somewhere new?
He rang and told me, Married Man boasted about having a 'private bank account' because he's so rich
mostly because he makes all his mistress's pay for everything They've made him feel that bad he was going to ask for a lump sum and just disappear from their lives for good, but i told him if anyone should be going anywhere it's married man and for him to try and stay put
I think should step back from your mother's life a bit. Let her make her own mistakes, she is a grown woman. As for the empty promises she makes you and your son, my daughter's father has made empty promises to her all his life. I tried to walk the fine line between not criticising him openly to her and not building her up for a fall either. I don't know how good I was at it, but by the time she was eight she had him totally sussed.
Life if full of people who make empty promises and though I hate people who do that to children, they do have to realise that there are people like that in this world
Agree with MexicanSpringtime.
How old is she? I'm guessing in her 30s or 40s.
This is the woman who endangered your child's life whilst driving and who, quite frankly, treats you like shit.
You need to seriously consider going NC with her.
I don't think she'll ever change and be the person you need/want.
minty She's 45 he's 40.
She's now NC, she's done I don't get on with my brother a lot but I could never ever imagine telling my DS "I don't need you anymore me and married man could just go and disappear" and make him feel so shit he'd promise to keep out of my life if he i gave him some money to get away.
I think you are spending too much time and energy worrying about your mother. Let it go. Her loss.
