Title: I don't mean to brag....
Post by: leftoverinmn on Jan 09, 2005, 09:25:55 AM
But, Jack got a CHECK!!! For $124.90!!! I still stunned, and elated. What a treat!!!!

I went to Target and hit the after christmas sales.
I bought Jack 4 new knit sweaters for school, three turtlenecks, a bag of brand new socks (10 pr) a Harley Davidson winter hat, 2 piece long underwear, a pair of fingerless gloves that has mittens that fold over the ends, a new tie for school, a pair of sweatpants, a ninja turtle toothbrush with sewer sludge toothpaste, and a bottle of Cascade detergent (with a free sample of jet dry).

And I still had enough leftover to take him out to eat at Applebee's.

I took all his clothes home and hung them up right away in his closet, except for the long underwear which I washed.

He went to school in his new sweater and turtleneck on friday. He looked so handsome..

I wish I could get one of those every month. But those clothes should last a while. Thanks for letting me share.

That is great. I got $100 last month and I got my son new winter boats, a sweatshirt and a few other things that he needed a few he didn't.

Hope you continue to get the cs, I am slowly, now I am putting it in his savings account for his future.

AWWW I bet he looked handsome.

about buying dishsoap with Jack's money.  Maybe I should teach him how to load the dishwasher?

I wouldn't feel guilty about buying dishsoap, lol dishsoap is cheap and you need clean dishes.

You were a good parent buy purchasing things he needs.

LOL better not buy any TP with that cs. I'm sorry now I am teasing you.

Well thats great!

How about I give you my Xs # and you can tell her what that $680 check she gets every month is for.

Please tell her its for the benifit of my Daughter!

Not for her, her 2 other kids, her Fing dogs, her new truck, her other kids daddy, her cable bill, her dope, her cigs, her tanpons, her bon bons, her BC, her Fing vibrater, her water bill, her ETC ETC ETC!

Please tell her that My daughter could realy use a new pair of shoes, mabey a new winter coat, some new socks, a movie now and then, some shampoo, a hair cut, a new sled, a school book order every now and then, hell even a few bucks into a saving account would help my Girl out in a few years!

end of rant!!

I know, I spend the little cs I get on my child, however I can never see what my dh's ex spends the $600+ on his kids as they usually have holey clothing,  but she has the money to dye her hair thousand island color and have smokes, but NOPE no glasses for stepkids etc.

YSD came down here this Xmas and again not dressed properly. Which makes us wonder what happens with the $300 a month that we sent her. She only had 1 pair of jeans that fit her right (the one's my MIL sent her for her bday), the other jeans she brought with her where extremely small (4t/5T), the girl is 7 years old. THe only things that BM bought her new was the coat,some long sleeve shirts and they where huge (size 10/12), her boots where like 2 sizes too big. She brought exactly 7 undies and like 4 THIN socks. No sweaters or thermals, lucky that it hasn't been that cold over here in PA. With all that said DH refused to buy her anything new, so she wore a lot of her sisters clothes and some clothes that my family got her for XMAS. This situation has happened EVERYTIME she has been down here for DH's parenting time.

I'm with everyone else in saying congratulations and can we give you our ex's number to call her and tell her what our $1700.00 a month can go for.............. YEP you heard me right, $1700.00 and she couldn't even make enought money to pay a stinking water, cable, and (old) jeep payment.  Our money paid for the morgage and  had enough left over for gorceries... She sold the house and now lives in a ratty 3 bdrm apartment in a crappy part of town.  She doesn't even buy the kids new school clothes, yet she is wearing all the brand name stuff and has $300.00 sun glasses.  AMAZING isn't it.  

Well, any ways way to go on getting cs.... YIPPEE

ROFLMAO!!!!  Now that was funny!!!!  I just don't get some of these BM's that don't spend the CS on the kids.  I will confess CS has come in handy on a waterbill or Van Payment here and there, but I LOVE to buy stuff for my kids with it!!  Actually I need to be stopped usually.  I should be putting it away in a savings account, but I can not resist a clearance rack to save my life!

What do you Dad's or SM's think about that?  What do you do when the kids have everything they need, do you think the BM's should put the money in a savings account or should it contribute to the other things they use like groceries, lights,  etc?  I am just wondering.

I am a Bm and SM, I get CS but my DH does not..he is supposed to, but yeah...  Good post RT ..I'm still giggling. :)

My two boys got gift certificates to Best Buy and when I took them there to spend their gift cards they each selected a computer game. Both of them went over by about ten bucks and since I was out of money personally.. you know.. christmas... I used their CS!

Whew.. I feel better getting that off my chest!

Well, I think you were well within your rights to do that!  LOLLOL  Who said that just because you receive CS your kids have to eek by?  We pay CS and as long as my sd has clothes to wear, food on the table and a roof over her head, I am absolutely happy that the cs is spent on computer games, nail polish, cute pillows, or whatever else sd wants.

I am a SM only, no children of my own and no Ex.  

I think that CS is for the child in all their needs.  A child not only needs clothes and toys but electricity, water, a warm blanket, a car (the CP's) that runs, a roof over their head, etc.

I don't have a problem with part of my DH's CP check going to HELP pay SOME OF the bills at BM's house.  A child is using the electricity and the water and eats food too.  

However I do have issue when BM tells us that she can't afford school clothes for SD and tells us to buy them for her, when we just handed her a check that is more than a week's Net Pay for my DH, and BM has just returned from the salon where she got a manacure, a pedicure, and her hair done!!!!!

BM's who use CS on themselves not the child and the child's needs bug me.  Other than that I say the Cascade, Tide, Water bill, etc are just fine to use some of the CS on.

If you have extra left over I would start a 529 for the child and start saving for their college.

I have both sides on this. I have a child that gets child support and my husband paies child support. Yes i put child support the my son gets in to my checking account and it gets mixed up with all the rest of the money that is in there. My sons has all his needs and most of his wants meet. I do not keep track to make sure i spend all of his money on him. But I put my kids and my step son befor my needs anyway.  On the other side My step son's will need things at there mother's  house and we end up getting it for them and sending it home with them like new sneakers winter hats and gloves,  $300.00 in new school clothes and much more. There mother gets 125.00 a week in cs. and we end up getting them new sneakers and there hair cuts. She has new things and a cell phone and her live in boyfriend that does not work has a cell phone.  That does not make me happy at all.
