buy him 1 carton and 1 case, tell him that's it. when he starts putting food on the table than he can get extras. my mom always told me, if you cant support your own habits, u need 2 quit. u get food stamps 4 u and those kids. without the kids u don't get. YOU not him. hide them, say u lost the card and it takes 2 weeks to get it back.

You need to discuss this with him. You need to make a point that he has to discipline them as well, and not make you out to be the bad guy. The answer shouldn't be "Mom said no." It should be "You already asked your mother. She said no, and I support that decision." Talking about it and making sure that you are both on the same page of discipline is key. He may not even realize what he is doing. As far as the housework, going to school is work and takes time. Him working outside the home is not an excuse for not doing duties in the home. If he isn't doing the housework, make sure he is doing the homework with the kids. In our house, Mom cooks and Dad does the dishes. All the kids take their plates over to the sink and help clear the table.

I went through this very same thing when my 3 were growing up...and, I was a stay-at-home mom. What helped me.....I began telling him what to do and he backed off.

Open a bank account he doesn't know about or even have a hiding place that's never going to be found, save the money there and don't tell him, you are the one being responsible and trying to do the best for your family while he just blows it. He has proven he can't be trusted so you have to take steps yourself.

It won't be the rest of your life. She'll get over him. But your bf is right. Don't rock the boat before court. Get something set in stone while amicable so she can't undo it without looking like a vindictive b*tch. You don't need to talk to her. My ex and I do perfectly fine with me having a restraining order against the main woman in his life (in his case, his mother). In fact, he just left from babysitting my other kids. But the first couple years for us were rocky at best. We each had different ways of doing things, we tried to push the other out of our son's life, it was awful. Once the emotions settled down, everything changed. He got over me, I stopped fighting his rights, which I had initiated him getting to begin with, and we are quite amicable. Hopefully your bf and his ex will get to that point, but don't push it when he's sorting out the legalities for his daughter.

I'm not sure why you want in the middle of this mess. They had just had a baby together then you are in the picture? I really hope this doesn't happen to you in the future. He shouldn't even be carrying on with you with all of this court stuff going on and if he lives with you mom could use that against him because judges frown on unmarried people cohabitation and doing overnights in the home with children. I don't understand why men hop from one bed to the next and then have the new woman thinking the ex is sooo horrible. Seriously, I've heard it so many times... just ask my ex husband's new wife how awful I am, LOL.
