Friends #1904 | asked by Shakira 4 years ago
Since my kids wanted to see Michelle's kids during a weekend she didn't have them, she was upset with me. However, the kids had fun getting together & ended up staying at our house overnight. Told the kids to ask their mom's permission first but they couldn't reach her on her cellphone. So we called their dad (Michelle's boyfriend) which infuriated Michelle because she said I disturbed them during their weekend together. She did not speak or email me for three months! Finally, after I sent her a gift basket to her work, she called to thank me. Her reasoning behind the anger was, "What if you were divorced & I took your kids out?" However, these kids were not HER kids; they were her boyfriend's! Although we talk now, we are no longer as close. I'd like to know your opinion.
Let me clarify that these kids were NOT Michelle's children. Rather, they are the children of the guy she is dating. Michelle is not the biological mother. Therefore, she did not particularly like the idea that my husband was going over to her boyfriend's ex's house to pick up the kids. Although we discussed the situation over the phone before it occurred, I guess it didn't help. She originally indicated to me that she was "okay" with this scenario, yet her attitude obviously changed later.
