The ex-wife keeps taking our daughter around her significant other. I try not to judge because I don’t see everything, but I wish she’d think a little more about how the sudden absence of this guy could affect our child if things didn’t work out. Of course there’s always the possibility that things do work out, and then I’m stuck hearing/dealing with this guy forever… Let’s cross our fingers on that one! *end sarcasm*
I keep hearing about him from my daughter. I try not to let it bug me, and I put on a smile for her. I listen, respond, and try to keep the conversation about him as short as possible.
Then there’s the tough bedtimes of my daughter crying, telling me she misses Mom and wishes we were both here. I wish we were both here too, but only for my daughter’s sake, not for mine… I don’t love whoever this woman is, she definitely isn’t the person I married.
Have you ever wished time would speed up and slow down all at once? That’s kinda where I’m at with all this. I’d love for everyone to be mostly over it, but then a couple of the really quality little kid years would be gone as well.
Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
It’ll get better, it’s already a lot better than it used to be. I just get really irked when I see my daughter upset and it’s her own Mom that caused it.
