So its mother's day right around the corner and I have 3 beautiful girls. My youngest 2 children dont understand yet (being they are only 20 months and 7 weeks) but my oldest does and she will be 8 in 3 weeks. My oldest lives with her father in CT and I am in TX (this was due to the Army) so I wont get to be with her on mother's day this year. Last year I was with her and it was a very fun day with a nice breakfast, mini golf, batting cages, and Chuck E Cheese. Last year she gave me a very nice little booklet she made in school explaining how special a mommy is and what things mommies do. I have it on my fridge along with her pictures. This year I am upset about her father's gf. This gf has been trying to take my place and causing problems trying to push me out of my daughter's life. My daughter told that my ex husband bought a gift for the gf for mother's day and wont be sending me anything. The gf has no children! She should not be getting a mother's day gift at all! I am her only mother and that gift should be sent to me.
I received a card in the mail the other day and my daughter signed her name and included a very nice 5x7 school picture. I did get a very short (less then 5 mins) phone call from her on Mother's day but heard the gf in the background to hurry up.
