Stepdaughter sent my son, her half brother, a Thank You card, postmarked June 23, 2005. He received it today. I was LIVID, and Keith wasn’t happy either with the content in the card.
She wrote, “Thomas, Thanks for the wonderful gifts that you gave me! Thanks for being supportive with my graduation unlike our dad! Well I hope you have a safe summer vacation and always stay out of trouble. Be good for your mom and your dad! Love ( her name)”
I sent her an email at 3:55pm. THANKFULLY we got something else in the mail at the time as well, for HER. I wrote, “(her legal first name), Just got an eob from (insurance) for your frames and lenses from February 9th, 2005. The check will be forwarded to you. Be on the look for it. DO NOT EVER write Thomas and spread YOUR ill feelings/will for “HIS DAD” (your words in your thank you card to him) again. A simple thank you would have sufficed. Had it not been for “His Dad’s” MONEY, you would not have gotten anything for graduation. “HIS DAD” was supportive of your graduation. Problem is, YOU failed to invite him to your graduation, and YOU failed to acknowledge the money he sent in support of your Senior Frolic. He probably would have done a lot more had you been a little bit kinder…. Keith’s loving wife, Pat”
I was PISSED and I don’t feel bad for what I wrote. My stepdaughter is now 18. She is NOW responsible for her words. My son is INNOCENT in all this. HE is not a part of the bullshit Keith’s ex dragged both my kids (as well as her own kids for that matter) into.
It STILL baffles me how his ex plays a big role in the Kiwanis club in her area the way she talked about my kids.
