 I'm so sorry you've had to deal with your ex and his mom. It sounds to me like you did all you could and that he has some very serious issues his mom is apparently comfortable helping him hide. You did the right thing by getting out of that relationship, taking out the restraining order, and cutting ties to them both. ((HUGS)) and do you have close family and friends of your own to help support you while you're raising your baby?

Hello everyone. I have a beautiful baby girl and am 100% in love with her and mommy hood. I guess in the back of my mind I wonder about my ex. He was acting crazy, lying cheating and stealing from me. I finally had enough right after my bag was born and stopped communicating with him, and finally had to get a restraining order. He's been on jail 3 times sinc e for DUI, endangering safety with a weapon (he fired a gun), and now he got arrest for Burglary. His mom refused to tell me what was going on my whole pregnancy.... And so I cut her off too. I just wonder if I coulda stopped it, done something more. And in the same breath... I wonder why his mom lied to me about everything. How can a woman do that to someone carrying their grandchild?? It's only been 4 months since the restraining order....

 I love Thanksgiving! Especially the food and family time. :) Wow, it was still warm enough for you to have the AC on? We've had the heat going for a few weeks here in AL now, although we had a couple of warm days there. We're under a hard freeze warning now. What's the temp there where you are?

IM getting ready for Thanksgiving for tomorrow and it's just going to be my family. My Boyfriend is not going to be here with me and IM so sad but he went with his family. IM start cooking in the morning. The weather is very nice out. I turn off my AC this morning

In the 60s and it's cold and windy outside too. I turn off my AC and I wish that it was hot, warm here but it's not

My mom visits me once a week, beyond that I work and spend time with my little one. I have friends, but no one is really close by. Plus everyone has families, boyfriends etc. I'd never want to burden anyone asking for help. I just feel bad that my baby doesn't have a daddy, and may never have one. Especially when I see couples and their kids, I feels little sad. Probably common among single parents to feel that way.

Yea it was one of those "Life changing" moves.  I was thinking about blogging about our move, our reasons for it, and our new life now.  I was also thinking of having a blog for family and friends with more personal stuff about my girls.


Quoting bamababe1975:

 Wow, that's a big move! I think blogs can be a fun way to share your thoughts on things and there are lots of great blog sites you can use to do that on nowadays. What do you want to blog about?

Quoting mommy2girls0506:

So I moved from Texas to Hawaii in July and I'm thinking about maybe writing a blog....  What are your thoughts on blogs?
