Sd Lives with DH and I most of the time like 95% of the year. During the summer Bm takes her 2wks on and 2 wks off. I just picked her up Sunday for 3wks and then she will go back until school starts in Aug. Today I took her with me to pick up YDD from daycare. It's very odd that my children tell me most things in the car. The car is like a therapist office for some reason. I mean we talk other places but a lot of confessionals happen in the car.lol Anyway this is how the convo went.
SD: Mommy I have a secret.
Me: O yeah do you want to tell me?
SD: BM told me not to tell you or daddy.
Me: well Babe if you feel like you need to talk about it you can tell me.
SD: BM and her boyfriend fight all the time like everyday and it makes me sad and nervous.
Me: Do they hurt each other?
SD: I shouldn't tell you because BM said not to but she cries when they fight.
Me: Honey I'm sorry you have to see her cry but I mean do they hit each other?
Me: Ok good I'm sorry that they fight and I promise you can always tell me or daddy if something like that makes you sad and you want to talk about it.
SD: ok thanks mommy.
I then stopped at the daycare and gave her a big hug.
It was a sad moment kind of bitter sweet. I'm truly sorry that she has to listen them fight but it was nice to give her a hug and let her know that I'm here to talk to her if she needs me. I think I handled it pretty good. What do you all think?
