I don't post much, so the background is that I am a recently (like the past 6 mos.) completely disengaged SM.
DH and SS are out of town right now. They return tomorrow night really late. Because of the situation, I assumed (wrong on my part, I know) that DH had made arrangements to get SS back to his BM's house when they landed. Perhaps she would pick up at the airport or meet here (since our home is on the way to the airport) or DH would drive him back once they got back here. Any of those scenarios.
Just got off the phone with DH to ask him what time he lands tomorrow and what the arrangements were. He informs me that SS will be sleeping here and missing 1/2 day of school on Monday. Someone will be picking SS up here mid morning to take him to school. Now, DH leaves for work early which means I will be here with SS. I am a SAHM/WAHM to our kids. DH says, "well, you'll be home right?" I will be, but that's not the point. What if I had a Dr. appt. or meeting? SS is not allowed to stay here alone. (long story) Not to mention it will disrupt our morning of teaching. I also homeschool my kids.
So, I'm pissed that DH has not made other arrangements for him to go home that night. WWYD? I am of the camp "not my kid, not my problem" but how do I remedy this without sounding like the chitty SM for wanting the kid to go home at midnight.
I realize my problem is with DH. He obviously keeps missing the memo that I am disengaged and that I am not playing babysitter here.
