I haven't been this dumb since she was 13!
I am the proud mother of a beautiful young woman & she is the mother of the worlds most wonderful 2 year old. She (the mom of course) has a great job, earns good money, has a nice home and is headed for divorce. It tears my heart out. At first I was all, try this, try that yada, yada. With a 2 year old it is an easy thing to forget about the frilly nighties and the me time. Well she did that, she did everything her husband asked regarding household chores, sex, dinner, etc. She made every effort, shutting off the phone, turning off the TV and a week after Christmas, after he had moved back in for a couple of months, he up and says he is just 'Checked out' and then he left. I am fine with that - she tried, he was stupid, but she won't listen to the advice I give for her to at least speak with an attorney to make sure she is protected. He makes snide remarks about how she knows everything and seems resentful of her success. Careerwise she is light years ahead and I think he is too insecure to deal with it. I am scared to death that she will wait trustingly until she has a mess on her hands. She says 'we are getting along better than when we were together'. Well yeah - he has no family responsibilities, nothing to worry about. He can live with Mama and pay a little for daycare and be the baby daddy that takes her every other weekend. How can a woman this smart not see it for what it is!!! Anytime I mention that she should maybe talk to someone, or have anything to say regarding the fact that his family is not taking her side, I am the meanest woman on the planet. Had to vent.
