Re: She's back

I'm sorry that you had to go through that. It's got to be tough when kids have to grow up knowing they were treated so badly by the person that is supposed to be there for them.

Re: She's back

It's tough. Owen is at the age where her being gone is going to have the longest lasting effect. If he were 5 or 6, he'd be able to get past this. But he will never respect her as a parent again. How...

Re: She's back

Exactly. I know we've discussed this before, but I am a firm believer that rehab and sobriety has so much less to do with abstaining from drugs and alcohol and more getting rid of the mindset that...

Re: She's back

Eric never replied to her text of empty promises, and she stopped texting after that. My guess is she found some drugs, is back out of touch with reality, and won't be seeing the inside of a rehab...

Re: She's back

Just got this text from her:

"I don't wanna do what I want. I wanna do for Owen. OWEN I LOVE YOU. I am giving up nursing school & getting into a 90 day treatment facility asap. OWEN I HOPE EVERY...

She's back

Well the beast is back.

Apparently a few days ago she showed up at her parents house, (her brother and fam is staying there until their house closes,) and wanted to use their phone and internet,...

Re: First official day of summer check in!

Well DH just found out he likely has to go to Michigan next week for a 6 week long project. We looked at a calendar, saw Owen still has more than that before he's back in school, and decided that if...

Re: First official day of summer check in!

Ugh. The first day of summer. We're in Arizona, and summer means staying indoors if at all possible. We venture out in the evening time to go swimming or get ice cream, but for the most part, we stay...

I believe so. Again, we are only assuming she is claiming she has him for food stamps.


We got a letter from his school in April that said, "Due to your recent approval for government assistance,...

Re: Just checking in

Good point. My mom said that maybe they didn't think it would be a big deal to bring Owen there because maybe they know something about her that we don't and they know for a fact that she wouldn't...

Re: Just checking in

Well he just got home.

No talk of BM. They didn't talk about her, nor did they try to get him to see her. He did, however, forget his phone at their house. Luckily this is a phone we just set up...

Re: Just checking in

True.


DH spoke to grandpa today. He says that she is still waiting to get into a place. I don't think I believe that. But grandpa seemed very removed from the situation, as if he really doesn't...

Re: Just checking in

It seems as if she is choosing finishing school to become an LPN rather than going to rehab. I'm curious as to why she would think that skipping rehab that just 3 months ago she said she needed 90...

Re: It amazes me

That makes sense and sounds fair.


Maybe just go with the mind set of, "If he's making an effort and is a safe person for them to be with, then let it happen until he proves otherwise."

Re: Just checking in

So he's back.

She never showed. (Shocking right?)


They calculated her at 40 hrs a week making minimum wage. They also calculated all the way back since we got full custody in October.

Re: Just checking in

I dunno though. She hasn't spoken to us or Owen in over a month. I said to Eric the other day I honestly wonder how long it will take her before she contacts us.

Like the old emergency order said...

Re: Just checking in

Oh it's been wonderful! We have a child support hearing tomorrow, and assuming they calculate her at minimum wage for 40 hours a week, she'd have to pay us $258.14 a month. Plus we're positive that...

Re: It amazes me

Let me ask you this then.. Aside from the fact that he sounds like a complete JERK... is he a good dad? Would the kids benefit from getting more time with him? Is it in THEIR best interest?...

Don't worry, your kids will know who was there essentially all the time and who really took care of them.

One thing to remember is that it always seems harder on us, the parents, to watch the other parent just not care.


My stepson is a very resilient kid, and it sounds like your daughter is, too. He...

You have to look at it from the perspective of "Whats best for your daughter?" If you honestly think it's best for you to allow them to maximize their time together when he does show up, then she...
