i worry what i'm going to say to this woman.
Alley has been with us nearly a month now and everything is going swimingly on our end. she is happy and we're all getting ready for our move next month which has alley so excited she's looking up town houses on the internet!
her mother on the other hand, is still finding new and infuriating ways to be a problem. Alley skypes with her almost daily for at least an hour, at least she had been for a couple of week until 2 days ago when her mother yelled at her via skype over a harmless comment she made to her sis about sis not being able to help her with a quest on a video game all she said was "you need crowns (game credits, which we got Alley fro xmas) to get that, you dont have any." Her mom made it sound as if Alley was trying to rub it in, which she wasnt. this is esp hilarious b/c mom has let Sis treat Alley like crap as long as i've known them (9 yrs)
as soon as her mom started yelling Alley turned the volume on the computer down, embarassed. it took all my will power not to go in that room and slam the computer shut. this kid moved 300 miles to get away from this kind of crap. i've ignored alot over the years trying not to butt where it wasnt my place. She's not my daughter, but this is my house and i'm the momma in my house and Alley is in my care. i feel like i'm failing her if i let this kind of stuff happen.
Hubby says we can just tell Alley next time her mom does that, she doesnt have to listen to it and just disconnect the call. this might solve the issue of her getting yelled at for no reason, but it does nothing about how her mother's favortism makes Alley feel. what i want to do is have hubby tell his ex that if she's going to fuss and yell at her then she need not call and if need be we will take steps to make sure it isnt happening.
