...so it doesn't really matter." is what easy child 2's mom replied when asked if easy child could go with us this weekend instead of next. Seems her new hubby's kids, which they have "50/50" custody of, but only have for 3 hours on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and every other weekend, normally, have been there most weekends so far this summer, so she's not getting to run kidless every other weekend, like she's accustomed to. Poor thing. My sympathetic reply? "I have kids 51 weekends a year." I wish I could get this stuff on tape.
