Should I Buy My Child’s Mom A Mother’s Day Gift?
Here is what he wrote in (Unedited)
Another Hot Topic, this afternoon is about mothers day a single father that has recently married wants to know if he should buy his child's mother a gift for Mother's day because his wife would have a problem with him buying his ex a gift.
Hey DJ Supreme, I have a quick question for your hot topic. Mother’s Day is this Sunday and I need a little advice. I’ve been married for a few years and we don’t have any children, but I have a six-year-old daughter with someone else.
I usually buy my child’s mother a gift for Mother’s Day, but I’ve never told my wife about it. It’s never anything too expensive because I don’t want to send the wrong message. I just want my daughter’s mom to know that I appreciate all of the hard work that she does with our child.
I think I know my wife pretty well, that’s why I’ve kept it a secret for so long. This year I want to be honest and let her know about the gift, but I’m pretty sure that she will trip. I hope that she will take a positive attitude and maybe even help me find something, but that’s probably wishful thinking!
I love my wife very much but I’m sick of pettiness so I’m hoping that you or maybe one of your listeners will give me some tips on how to approach her because I’m buying the gift with or without her.
Dj Supreme's Response
Be Honest for what? It seems like you are just inviting problems and pettiness into your relationship. Often, men get guilted into telling the truth about something that will just cause problems. Do yourself a favor this Mother's Day and keep your home happy. You kept it a secret for a reason you know your partner and frankly, this isn't any of her business.
If she knew about the gift, it sounds like she would just make your co-parenting situation difficult. You have a child with this woman that is a lifelong commitment that has nothing to do with your current dating or marriage situation. Your wife married a man with a child, she knew the stipulations that come along with dating and then marrying a single Dad.
If she isn't mature enough to accept this she doesn't need to know about the mothers day gift just say it's from your daughter and keep the peace in your home.
