Teslet brought home a flyer for a family breakfast at his school...needs rsvp.

Teslet said he'd like his mom and dad to come would I let dad know? Oh and we should invite stripper whore too because she lives with dad.

Ah, fuck me, this family breakfast is on D-day. Great.

Gonna get my big girl panties on and text this fucker. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.

You go in there with your head held high. Stripper-whore will be more uncomfortable because there will not be another parent there that does not respect you for your dedication to Teslet. But I may be wrong because she is oblivious.
No one will miss that they are a train wreck of dysfunctional delusions thinking that decent people want them at a school function. Especially the dumbass who showed up with a stripper-whore.

Just keep reminding yourself that you are doing this for Teslet.

I think...therefore, I'm single.

I never talk to the sad clown about this stuff - I forward the note to him either in the girls bags or via email with no comment if the date is close.

If the girls asked OWUmpteen to come I'd tell them they should talk to their dad.

If she does show they are the ones who should feel uncomfortable. They will look ridiculous.

((Tesla)) I would struggle to hear that come out of my babies mouths. I'm glad he feels comfortable enough to tell you, but still.

I may have reached a point where I'd piss on him if he was on fire.... eventually!!

If your ex-shat runs true to form, he won't show up. He'll forget or think that it was the following week, etc.

If he does, though... sorry, I don't blame you for not wanting to share the same air with them, but won't he look so stupid with her on his arm. I mean, based on your descriptions, what an embarrassment she must be. I'm sure the members of the PTA will be delighted to meet her and will invite her to join!

Is there not like a email newsletter that would make him responsible for
a. Reading it
b. responding to it and then
c. Actually showing up

Then the pressure is off of you to pass on info. If he doesn't show or respond-----he didn't read his email!

He's not going to show...I know it. He's too much of a chickenshit. He dislikes the school because he couldn't get his way earlier in the year with having stripper whore do pick ups.

And *if* he did show up with her and the OC, it would be fucking train wreck central. Shit, it probably would make for a great post.

I've never bothered before about communicating these kind of things because there was always time to send it over or there was a link on the school's website...but this time there wasn't. And Teslet asked specifically.

For Teslet's sake, I hope the fucker shows up.
For my sake, I hope he doesn't.

I've gotten many "requests" from FTFred through my son, and I ignore ALL of those. DS should NOT be responsible for relaying FT's wishes. If he wants to coordinate something with me, he can ask his damn self.

I scan and email him school and scouting activities, but he ignores them all anyway. Oh well, I did my part..

Werent you the poster about picking up dog shit for a happy meal

If bad comes to worse and they show, think of that. They'll wonder why you smile so and you'll have your mind on other things.

Good Luck and yes, you are a great mom!!

I, on the other hand, would 'forget' to send it until it was too late to rsvp. Because I know xpos *would* show up.

In situations like ours I would be wary of becoming the messenger for our kids - especially if you think he's not going to show.

Teslet needs to ask him if he wants him there. I showed up to my big girls first school info night - the sad clown did not. She kept asking if he was coming and I said I didn't know. She then asked if I told him and I said I didn't have to because the school tells him everything they tell me. He lied told her I didn't tell him.

Imagine if I had asked him - he still would have said I didn't tell him but she would have no proof of it. She now asks him herself. If he doesn't show it's on him - no-one else.

I may have reached a point where I'd piss on him if he was on fire.... eventually!!

I''d copy it and send it to him. But I wouldn''t ask him to come. It''s up to him to decide that.

Because in his head if you text him:

Tesla wants me there. So I shouldn''t go. But I could show her up. I could show that school that she''s the idiot. But that school are nasty to me. I shouldn''t go. I hate that school. I should go, I''ll show them. But Tesla wants me there.I shouldn''t go. But I can make her play happy families. I should go. But then I''ll have to spend time with the other families. I shouldn''t go. But then I an show them how I''m friends with Tesla & that''ll make me look good. I should go. But....

And so on.

If you just send it (like a flyer):

Huh, what''s this? Ah,can''t be bothered. Need to make ''er indoors'' pick up dog poop.

As a parent who sits thru band concerts with XWH and OW in the crowd, it totally sucks. It actually HURTS me so badly, however, when POS does not show up to functions, because I know my child hurts.

You are a quality person and can do this.

I can't even imagine. However, you've shown what a great mom you are. So .... even though it sucks .... it's for the boy.

And I'm sure if he does show, it'll make for the most hi-fucking-larious post yet.


And, from the view of the childless spinster, he sounds like such an awesome little dude. This being that he is comfortable enough to tell you this sort of thing. (((Teslet)))

This is shit but you can do this Tesla - for teslet.

I have had to sit through school functions with WXW and OM in the room (OM's kids are at the school too - his DD in my DS's class!). Every time OM sits away from WXW and keeps his head low in shame. Remember - it is always worse for them - our discomfort is nothing to their shame. Head high.

I hate this too. But it's the right thing to do for Teslet, it also shows Teslet what a great mom you are.

I let my ex know by email that way he can't say I didn't tell him. There is a chain of evidence because every 5 minutes he's threatening to take me to court for some imaginary thing I have 'done to him'. I also ask him to let me know by x date if he is attending.

He never attends anything, he never replies either to these emails. Kids complain to me that he never turns up I tell them they have to talk to their dad about it. They complain to him and he will ignores them, lies to them, blame me, or whines that the OWifestress can't attend (kids don't want her there) or finds some injustice to blame it on.

At the end of the day the kids know who is in their corner.

If Teslet wants his mother and his father there, then stripperwhore has no business going. She is not his parent.

I wouldn't go. Period.
There are some things that children benefit from learning. One of them is that sometimes you can't have everything your way.
STBX's X....yeah, made a funny and didn't realize, was awful to us. Both boys wanted both parents at EVERYTHING.
Now I did make an exception for big events, like graduations.
That was it. The few WH and I compromised, every time she never failed to disappoint. As soon as she would start saying nasty crap, I would pretend like she wasn't in the room and would look right through her. She got WH every time, though. He couldn't resist going tit for tat with her.
I sincerely hope that if you do go, that neither of them "misbehaves" in front of adorable little teslet.
Best of luck.

I don't need further confirmation of what a fuckwit he is. I already have plenty, thanks very much. -SBB

My advice is to scan and send him the info. Or take a pic of the flyer and send it to him. That way, if he ignores it, it's on him. I send STBX info all the time, I stopped telling him because he wouldn't show and then tell people I didn't tell him anything...

And I agree, look amazingly hot...

You did the right thing doing what Teslet asked. It will be hard if they show, but you can handle it.

I hope he doesn't tell Teslet he's coming any not show.
