People that wake up everyday to sunshine regardless of the actual weather, whose lives look peachy perfect b/c of their demeanor, whose energies and smiles motivate you or make you want to strangle them... 

Or do you?

I don't get bank statements either, or credit card, or investment account statements.  I get a few bills via paper - and I can't seem to figure out the right combination of holding my mouth right and saying pretty please for them to stop sending me a paper mortgage statement; it's on autodraft but they still send me 3-4 pages of paper each month.  *grumble*

My kids have had bank accounts since birth. That seemed to be a foreign concept for people on this board, the latest discussion even prompted you to open something new for your kid. Glad to hear it's not so foreign after all, albeit savings and no checking until 18.

Again, making things up.

I can do almost anything banking related on my phone except get actual cash.

Um, no there isn't.  And definitely not in the context you mistakenly used that nonsense term.

Did you read?  I said the exact same thing ~ despite his earning more like most people, the original order was never changed.  You just confirmed what I said. @@

Was he lying before the divorce and you were still married?  Or did he simply live out the truth of a new bride and groom happily wanting 2 children in their home?  Hm, I know which one I'm going with.

It frightens me that only a portion of the CS goes to the children's expenses.  And the other portion goes....  I've heard of this happening and I highly doubt this is what the court nor the ex-DH intended.

Why would you lie like this? What indicates  savcal spends cs on other than her children except in your negative imagination?

I said that CS covers a portion of the children's expenses, which is very different than saying a portion of CS covers the children's expenses.

If your fairy tales frighten you so much, then stop making them up.
