From NCSM to CSM

If you have had this experience do you have any advice? Warnings about unforseen challenges?

I've been a NCSM for 3 years. Now, custody has changed and DH will be CP.

I'm already hypersensitive about not overstepping into BM's place. I'm just anxious/nervous that I'm somehow gonna screw this up.

Same for me, I literally am a week into CSM from NCSM.  So far I have just been living my life as normal, besides the extra cooking ;), and have been letting DH do all the school stuff, I'm just a support person.  DH has been keeping BM apprised of school schedules, band stuff etc.  BM and DH did put me on the pick up list for the kids at school, and she has ok'd me taking them to the doctor, stuff like that.  But I'm like you, I have been very wary, and very cautious about my role.

Why was there a custody switch?

DH filed a motion to modify..mainly based on BM's instability. BM willingly gave up custody the day of court, which was really the best decision she could make for herself and SD at the time.

She has had SD since the day of court (July 2nd) for summer vacation but we pick her up on Sunday.

Well SD hasn't even been here since court. BM asked to go ahead and get 30 days of summer visitation..which DH agreed to. But we pick her up this Sunday :)

But she starts prek on Aug 26th!
