The secret diary of a single parent bloke
I’m becoming increasingly concerned about Katrina’s ability to look after Natalia and Jack. Especially Jack. He’s spending less and less time actually at his mother’s and more and more time “opting out” and staying at his nan’s. I can’t say that I blame him.
Natalia is Katrina’s favourite, and Jack knows it. He also knows that he is his nan and grandad’s favourite.
Even though the children have been staying with Katrina and Dave every other weekend for over two years, they still have to share a single bed. After I previously intervened, an inflatable bed was purchased, but has since been discarded, so now they’re back in the bed. If that wasn’t bad enough, Jack has started wetting the bed again. Both children come home filthy and stinking of urine.
Their nan and grandad’s house isn’t a solution either. Apart from the favouritism issue, it’s filthy and unhygienic. When Natalia and Jack return from there, particularly Jack, they stink and are encrusted with dirt. I’ll try speaking to Katrina again, but I’m sure it’ll do no good.
