What kind of mother is she??

Well, the newest on Amber (my ex's first child's mom) suddenly decided that she is going to move to Louisiana with her boyfriend and the kids because somehow he got a job at an oil rig down there. They have no idea if the job is legit or if he's even going to like it. She claims they have a place to stay but she won't say where or with who. A lot of her friends and family members think that she's making a mistake, uprooting the kids like that and taking them into the unknown. I have to agree with that. She told Dustin (my ex) that she was going to let Lezlie (their daughter) finish out the school year before they move. However, on her Facebook last night she told everyone that they're having a going away party tonight because they're leaving this weekend. Her aunt commented on her status saying that she is stupid for following a man who was going to walk out on her and the kids not even a month ago (Amber claims they have a wonderful relationship, I knew she was lying) and that she should let him go first to check it out and then he can send for them when he's settled down there. She said she doesn't want to do that so I think she's afraid that he's going to move down there and not send for her and the kids. I mean afterall, he doesn't want to be with her anyway. The only reason she's following him is because she wants that good money he's going to be making. That's all she's ever been about, the money. So what kind of mother just completely uproots her children in the middle of the night to follow a man who doesn't even want to be with her??

No good mother would uproot her kids and take them from family, friends and all that they know just for a man. She will figure it out when she is stuck there. Luckily she is not your problem anymore.

I agree with you 100%. And no, she is no longer my problem. I just feel bad for her kids. She says they are going to live with her brother and his family until they can get their own place. They are all big partiers and drinkers so I'm sure that story won't end well.

There are so many grandparents now that play the parent role for their grandchildren. I feel bad for all of them. The kids miss out on having "grandparents" and the grandparents don't get to enjoy being grandparents. When I was growing up, stories like these were so rare and now it is just a common thing.

If he has any kind of visitation rights at all she is supposed to get his permission before leaving the state. She would be breaking the law moving the kids out of state.

He doesn't have any court ordered visitations. She was letting him see her whenever she needed a babysitter or free time. He had to find out from me that they're moving so soon. I don't know if he spoke to her about it or not.

The kind that shouldn't have been a mother in the first place. How can she be so selfish? I can just imagine how difficult the move can be on the kids. I hope she have a change of heart soon.

They've already got everything packed up and they're leaving tomorrow. I think it's too late for her to have a change of heart. Lol

I think that first of all once you have a family and children are children. Yet they need a mom at any time. I'm only 25 years old and have two children twins and for a moment I was paid by them. My family is important to me and I never separated children from this family. I think it is important for children in what environment they live because they feel so secure. not condone such behavior.
