See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My best friend married young, had kids young, and got divorced by the time she was 23. She has 2 amazing little boys, my godson's. I love them as if they were my own. Their father is a wonderful dad. He sees them as often as he can. He pays his child support without fail. He helps her out if she needs him to watch them for her. He, to me, is the dream baby daddy. She is the type that cannot be alone. She has jumped from man to man, never being single for more than a couple of days, if that. She completely changes her personality and interests to match those of the man in her life at the time. She does the same with her children. She will dress them like him, have them be interested in him and what he likes to do. Now over and over I have scolded her, given her advice, done everything I can to try to get her to realize it. She just constantly tells me I need to stop trying to be her mom. Now her sons' father, who I grew very close to while they were married and have stayed close friends with for the last few years, is working 2 jobs and has to move and it is his weekend to have the boys. She told him "tough, it's your weekend, figure it out". Now keep in mind he kept them for her when she moved earlier this month. He has always done everything he can for those boys. On top of all this, she told him she is speaking to an attorney about terminating his visitation rights?!?!
She makes me sooo angry!! I would love to have a father for my son like she has for hers.
It probably doesn't help that she was raised by a woman who does insane things, and also had multiple husbands who she did the same things with as far as changing to be like them.
OKay rant over....any advice ladies?????
