Quoting Chelsea Dawns Mama:" Does her mom know all this? Why hasn't she taken the phone away?"
Oh she knows. I think my sister is in denial about how bad kaitlyn really is. She feels bad because Kaitlyn is "different" but I say over and over... that its going to be a problem.
When Kaitlyn was looking up inappropriate stuff on her phone I got on her and said "I was barely 19 when I had Lily... I hadn't graduated.... I had a messed up life and I barely made it. Kaitlyn, you DONT have the capacity to have a child. I don't regret Lily but don't end up like me, except even younger!" I got so much smurf from my brother in law for my pregnancy but he doesnt do ANYTHING at all. Smurfing smurf. My sister works her ass off and is expected to parent 100% while her dick of a husband doesnt do smurf. Makes me mad. But it's rubbing off on the kids and they WILL pay for it.
My niece and nephew are selfish too. They expect others to do things for them at a costly number (like having a phone, or me giving her my camera, or giving her my sleeping bag for camp. I gave her my old sleeping bag today... I was NOT going to give her a 100$ sleeping bag to bring and ruin!) They are into money, and money only. If they see a price tag of "100$ shoes" they like it more than the same shoes that may only be 10$. My stepdad gave my nephew some Sketchers that didn't fit him, he bought them and they didnt fit him. My nephew said "They aren't nikes, I wont wear them. I like Jordans." I called him a selfish ass because of how he acts. My Mom offered to get him shoes and my nephew said "Oh the Sketchers dont fit and they are for babies." I almost lost it. He saw a pair of nikes that only had a few sizes left, all too big. He pushed his foot to the front of the shoe and said "Oh they fit" but I wasnt buying it. I made him walk and they were sliding off of him like clown shoes and he said "Oh they will work just fine." My Mom started crying, and I said "Look, you wont wear $30 Sketchers that smurfing fit because you are a selfish little ass, but will force yourself to wear nikes that are 5 sizes too big because all you care about is the brand!!!" My Mom gets so hurt by how they act. I wear beanies, jeans, hoodies, t shirts or tank tops. My nephew calls me a boy ALL the time. And my niece only wears boy clothes now and says "Im a tomboy so Im supposed to wear these things, even boxers. I cant wear underwear. I cant wear girls clothes." I was shaking my head.... their image is SO freaking important.
I could go on and on. They are selfish and mean. And then I have the child that is happy with a picture printed out with some old crayons and will cuddle up to grandma and color together. That's her "present" she loves. That's why we dont care about spending money for Lily because she doesnt ASK. But then my niece and nephew expect it all.
Then they abuse the privileges by doing what they are doing... bitching about what they dont have and hurt other people and then destroy things they want.
That reminds me. Once my niece was here and found my daughters piggy bank. As she was leaving, she closed the door and said "By the way I stole Lilys money, hahahahaha!" and ran to the car. I followed her and was YELLING "YOU SELFISH LITTLE BRAT...GIVE HER BACK HER MONEY!!!" And she was looking at her mom saying "I just said bye, I didnt say anything." I was seeing red I was so mad. Then we find out she threw the money on the ground next to the door.
So now we hide things that may be stolen because of how they act.
It SUCKS to live like this... they were good kids, well my nephew was. My niece has ALWAYS been this way.
