Nichole got an email from stepgfg today stating how she'd love to come here, but she can't because she's trying to get insurance in Mo because of her brain thingy. I believe I shocked Nichole with my reaction. "OH NO NO NO H*LL NO!" came flying out of my mouth before my brain even soaked the information in. Then I felt bad because Nichole's mouth fell open and her eyes got wide. Yep. I think I may have a wee bit of PTSD going on. Stepgfg must be desperate. She's not doing much buttering up. Nor, evidently, is she even considering any of the rest of the family's reaction to her contact with Nichole. As always it's what she wants that is in the forfront of her brain. Nichole asked why, if she does have this so called serious brian thingy, hasn't she got to get on welfare insurance? Not gonna snucker my girl on that one. lol Nichole has gotten rather savvy with how welfare works, especially the insurance. No response. Also, I find it a bit odd that we've yet to here anything at all substantial about Kayla or Alex. I mean, I'm talking just normal everyday stuff. Other than those supposed pics she was sending (which we still haven't seen), there hasn't been anything about the kids at all. Heck, even though I see easy child and Nichole everyday, they still find something new to tell me about Darrin or Aubrey. But from stepgfg there is nothing. Not a peep. And I find that strange when one would think that at least in her mind that would be her trump card. I expect the second shoe will be stepgfg asking Nichole for money to get here along with a sob story. I still wonder how long this contact will last when she comes to realize there won't be a pay off. Sort of disappointing though to discover that 6 long years has done nothing to help her mature or change.
