So yesterday, when I told Joe that I had to take the girls to their dad’s he was sad. He thought we were going to get to go to the park this weekend and have a picnic with the kids. Well it turns out that our wish is granted.
My ex calls me yesterday to tell me he “accidentally” dumped all of his medicine in the toilet yesterday. The doctor won’t give him more, and he can’t get an appointment to see the doctor for at least a week. So the girls aren’t spending the weekend with their dad. Works out great for me and Joe because now he and I can take the kids to the park.
Not so great for the girls, whose hearts I get to break when I pick them up. They were so excited to get to go. I am going to do my best to make this a great weekend for them. Feed them junk food, let them eat ice cream. The works. Because they deserve more. And by golly if they can’t get it from their dad well I will be damned if they are going to miss out. Lots of love pouring out for my girls because I will always be there to pick up the slack.
Always pour out your love into your kids. You never know when they are going to need it the most.
