The most embarrasing step parent story....

(14 Posts)

.... The WF thread (about another adult wanting to be called a parent) got me thinking of something that happened to us years ago, which still goes down as one of the most embarrasing step-parent stories I have:

DH, me, DSD1 and DSD2 are on holiday in a very pucker hotel in Devon. DSD2 is no more than 2.

They have a baby listening service, so one night, we put the DSDs to bed and go for a drink. DH has (sadly) had 2-3 stellas.

The baby monitor comes over and tells us, discreetly, that DSD2 is 'wanting her mummy'

DH decides to announce to the whole bar, that THAT won't be happening because her MUMMY isn't here.

Que the harlot (aka me blush) havingto walk thru the crowded bar to sort out DSD2.

i still blush at that one blush

What's your worst story?

DSD's being told by someone at party 'how much they look like their Mum' to which they curiously asked 'how do you know? have you met her?'

The person was very blush I felt very awkward, as like Jammi says, it sometimes is easier not to explain to someone they are not your kids!

OK, that;s not really what I had in mind with this thread....

Not all step parents are bad / nasty.

But, hope you are OK nonetheless

\not sure the smile is that appropriate.

IMO the smile IS appropriate

he is being arrested for violently assualting me giving me 6 bruises.

Of course not all step parents are nasty, most that i know are lovely.

Unfortunately for me my step dad is NOT!

youcannotbeserious Wed 30-Jul-08 21:17:51

Obviously!! Are you OK?

When you say the smile is appropriate... Are you pleased he's done something you can actually 'do' him for? Not sure I understand

I just meant this thread to be quite funny in a 'haha' sort of way, which is why I was surprised at your post.... Has he been your step dad for long? Have you ever gotten along with him?

nannyL Wed 30-Jul-08 21:39:37

sorry.... i sort of invaved this post... i know its not the point

is been my mums OH for 12 years, my legal step dad for 5.

Im pleased he's being arrested because he is finally getting what he deserves, and in a really wierd way i can finally prove (if thats the right word, not sure it is) that he is the nasty violent man when i have known all along that he is...

he has a way of convincing other people he is nice, but hes NOT and now he is guilty of violently assualting me, im pleased he is FINALLY getting what he deserves... and other people who think butter wouldnt melt in his mouth can know he is guilty of being violent.

i told him years ago tha is he ever touched me id go striaght to the police... he did... so, so did I.

i am NOT pleased he attacked me.... i sooo cross that he did.... but im pleased that he has been caught out for it...

in the past he has only emotionaly abused me, so now he has physically done it something can be done.... thats why im pleased he's being arested if that makes sense?

Yes, I can see your point. How are you this morning? How's your mum? She must be feeling pretty cut up abou thim attacking you....

Don't think this is really where you should be airing all this - why not make your own thread not dramatically change someone elses.

Twinkie1 Thu 31-Jul-08 12:27:09

Bloody hell poor you!

I hope you are ok. But as you said at alst people know what he is like and something is being done. I hope your mum is ok too.

Don't worry about being told not to change threads - you were asked what happened and you answered! hmm

Hi Jammi!!!!!

<<<<TCBS waves>>>>>

nannyL Thu 31-Jul-08 18:21:10

yes that thread was true

yes my mum is just as bad

was on my MUMs computer, not his at their house. Also from their hosue i only asked if it is unreasonable to completely ignore someone... and that is a reasonable question IMO.... the rest was from my house

If you knew the whole story than you would see who is the worst and its not me.

I also dont violently attack people... as well as strangling me he gave me 6 bruises.... there is NO excuse for hurting people at all IMO and he certainly did not have a valid reason... the police agreed with me too
(not sure their could be a valid reason, but if if their could their was not)

only posted cause one answer was someone was embarrassed when their step child was arrested... well my step dad was being arrested, that was my link and i was asked and answered the rest
