I guess after I went to bed last night there was an incident. Mom told me that C and E failed to put their kids to bed sighting that they could stay up as late as they wanted so the would sleep as much as possible on the drive home today. (Mom and I are staying in FL one extra day) Something Mom said was a kid’s show but kind of scary was on tv and when Dollface looked up she got scared and started screaming. C flew out of her bedroom and started screaming at Stretch about how she shouldn’t have let her watch something like that and then she slapped her.
I’m beside myself about this. Just hearing Mom talk about it really made my stomach turn over and want to cry. We were at a resturant at the time so all I could do was listen. And then Mom who had lived with it for a day and “unloaded” on me wants to tralala her way through the rest of the evening.
I feel just horrible for those kids and E too although I realize he’s not totally blameless in all this.
C is just a total bitch who runs her family with heartless inconsistancies and is a mean know-it-all tyrant. Why did my brother have to marry her? I hate her.
I feel helpless. It seems that when me or Mom try to intervene it just makes the situation worse. Or E for that matter. She’s so mean and defensive about things and totally does not realize there is a problem. I’ve witnessed in the past E trying to discipline his own kids or try to set up chores or a routine for them and C just totally cuts him off and she’s usually very mean about it.
Earlier before the slapping incident, Mom had tried to talk to C about how Stretch does not do what she’s asked and that C needed to do something about that. Well, the next time Stretch didn’t do what she was asked, she got screamed at in a hateful tone of voice.
I don’t care what good qualities she has or doesn’t have. I don’t care that she offered to carry a baby for me. I don’t like that she’s part of my family. That we’re stuck with her for life.
I don’t know what to do or if there is anything I can do.
