Omg my head is reeling from this day. 1st on my way to work my boss calls me & tells me to check my email. Things were happening & there were meetings and everything else for the day was cancelled. Turns out my company is selling a piece of the business. So far I still have a job but who knows what the future will hold. I've only been there for 5 months
Then Dh called. His ex called & left a message that she is having problems with his 13 year old and that sd wants to come live with us.
I'm trying so hard to not get my hopes up. I've wanted this for years! I adore dsd & she fits in great with our family. It would be so much better for her to live with us as well. Bm really favors dh's oldest and basically ignores dsd. We were thinking this might happen over the summer since bm has really been hands off with dsd and dh's oldest was made to raise her. Since his oldest is graduating from high school & going to college, bm would be kid free.
Fingers crossed that all goes well and that your dsd does get to come and live with you!!!!

Dh & bm played phone tag yesterday so they never got to talk. He's off today so hopefully he can get a hold of her. I hope he at least tries - he doesn't like to talk to her.
Basically bm's message said, "you have her for Thanksgiving" (which is our holiday) "and Christmas through New Years" (we usually only do New Years) and then we can decide if she stays with you or comes home.
I'm like We need to decide before that! If she comes & stays with us, we'll have to get her registered for school BEFORE Christmas break. She will need to start school right after New Years. That takes time. Plus dsd will go to the Jr High & we don't have any experience with that. If she was going to dd & ds school it would be a piece of cake because we know everyone. But since it's jr high, she'll have to take a bus and pick classes.
I hate that bm & dh both don't look ahead & think these things through. I have to do it all. Not to mention that we'll have to rearrange. DD's room isn't big enough for 2 girls & we only have 3 bedrooms so they have to share. We'll give them the master bedroom & move into dd room. But that will require some painting & other work.
This is a good thing but it can't be a last minute decision.
