So, my Ex has my 4 3 out of 4 weekends a month. Last month was the first time fully we had all 6 together and it was a complete disaster because James' 12 year old had a complete aggressive meltdown.. Mine were left standing there like what the... lol
Anywho. Any advice to make the weekend go more smoothly. My nerves are shot just thinking about it.. Between James' 12 year old and the issues we are trying to resolve (BM is actually trying to get help for him now THANK THE LORD) and my 7 year old and James' 4 year old constantly fighting I am ready to stock up on anti anxiety medicine lol.
Last weekend when J's boys were over I did wrong, by staying in my room for the most part (watching tv, doing laundry ect) just so I could have some sanity.. and the weekend went fine for 12 yr stb-dss BUT we haven't figuared out if its because I wasn't around or if its because James put his foot firmly down. We did get a apology for the violent behavior the weekend before but only because James insisted we weren't moving the car from BM driveway without one.
Well, its Monday..and the weekend went extreamly well compared to what I thought I was going to hide under a rock for.. Besides Dakota and Landen getting into it..(normal atleast i think so) over toys..I had no attitude out of Logan. Yay for good weekends lol
I hope so.. That makes 2 weekends where it was somewhat peaceful. I dont know if it was a) the first weekend i stayed in our room B) the second weekend he didn't wanna show his butt in front of my kids..or c) He realized James put his foot down and we aren't going to tolerate attitude/aggressive behavior.. We will see this weekend
