I need some advice on how to respond to an email from the kids' BM.
I have never met nor spoken with her. And the last few visits with the kids she has bashed me in front of the kids. Which hurt because I am always positive and supportive about her and her SO to the kids.
Somehow she got my personal email. SS has DH and my joint email but not my personal one, so wasn't him, and DH didn't give it to her. So that is the first thing that I am baffled about: how did she get my email when I haven't shared it with anyone who knows her?
But she sent this email saying she wants to introduce herself, gave me her email and phone number.
Which seems nice. But then she goes into telling me "how it was" to set things straight..... how she worded it, it felt to me like she is trying to stir up trouble with me and DH.
Everything she told me, he already told me. DH was very very honest to me about all that happened, his fault and hers... so it was nothing upsetting. Just the way she did it and she is doing it now (we told the kids we are having a baby, and both are thrilled.) Seems like a ploy to cause drama.
How do I respond nicely? I want to keep the door open, and not be negative to her, but don't want to give into her bait by mentioning anything about all she told me.
