It’s been a day for phone calls, each hanging up on each other. Him because he doesn’t want to deal with the trouble she’s trying to cause a few days before visitation, and SHE because she doesn’t like what he has to say. WHEW…
The ex is not happy that Keith gave her a C+ rating as a parent, back in April 2000. Hey, SHE called and asked his opinion on her parenting, so he gave her a C+, OK rating. Apparently she wasn’t happy about it and had been stewing on it all this time.
ANYWAY, during this conversation today, she started hassling Keith about the kids not wanting to be dropped off at the house if HE was not home.
She called me a “fat bitch” several times, accused me of listening in on their conversation, (no, but it was being recorded) and told him that her kids are very good kids, they are very respectful, very well mannered, they have a lot of respect for people and how she doesn’t want them to treat anyone disrespectfully, including anyone that he introduces them to. HMMMM, really? Interesting.
Further on in the conversation, after threatening him YET AGAIN with taking him to court, she tells him, “I don’t want you around, I don’t want to have to deal with you at all.” Ya don’t say…..
Maybe she got into an argument with her ex husband or boyfriend, who knows, because she was definitely ON ONE. During a moment of clarity, she told Keith, “ and I know you got short changed on this whole deal. I know you did, I know I screwed up, I know that they should spend more time with you and I all I can do right now is try and fix it from right now. That’s all I can do. Should have spent more time with you, should have had more time with you, should have been around you more, should have everything. Ok, well, I realize that now, I realize that that was a decision made at a time when probably wasn’t a good decision and now I think we should have done something differently.”
She goes on to tell Keith how he “doesn’t know them.” Keith said “Well, there’s only one way to get to know them is to be around them, right?” She said he’s right, she agreed, they need to spend more time with him, and she’s trying to work it out. Sounds like she’s (pretending) to think she’s going to move back to CA.
Personally, her words are all B.S. The kids are due here on July 21st, and this is what usually happens prior to visitation.
