I know I come across as wicked step mother because all I ever feel/ seem to do is moan about DSC but belive it or not I do love them.

However on access weekends I like us to do stuff as the 4 of us. But tomorrow dp is takin dsd to see a film which dsd refuses to go to. I would like to go see the film too but said I would watch dsd instead. But then dp sends dp up to ask me if I wanted to go to a different film. Which I don't really want to do. 1- because I really wanna see the other one and I prob won't get to as money is really tight and 2- the I my reason dsd want a to go is because her brother is going and she can't possibly miss out.

So I am being slightly selfish. But dps ex offered to take dsd to pics instead. Which I would prefer. But dp never arranged this so then dp send dsd up to me to ask if we are going. I'm fuming. He knows I don't wanna go. Why did he not just arrange the ex to take her!!

I know I am being a selfish cow

Just need a drink I think.

No you're not being selfish tell him you will go to the film you want to see with one of them and he can go see the other film with dsd.

The 3 of us all wanna go see it. This is the dilemma. Now I'm being made feel like a duck because I won't take dsd. He doesn't get why I'm annoyed. So it obviously doesn't matter. Then he tries having a deep and meaningful when the kids can hear and eariwig. I just want to go to bed. In fact I think I might.

You do is being selfish. It's his idea he should see the other film, you should see the one you want.

You never come across as a wicked step mum, you come across as someone who has a bloody selfish partner.

I'm not following, sorry it's probably me. Do you mean your Dp is taking ds to a film you want to see but are instead watching dsd? Dsd doesn't want to see it but will for fear of missing out?

Ok I get it now, just tell dsd that mummy is going with her and then tell dp he's an arse smile
