I'm having serious cuddlebug withdrawls. I need my little one back, stat! Her dad lives three hours away from here, and during her spring break she went to stay with him. She's been gone since last Friday, and won't be back until tomorrow night or Sunday. I should be used to this, for her whole life whenever she'd go to her daddy's she would stay at least 4 days, sometimes up to 2 weeks, because he rarely got her and I would let her stay a little longer. Now that she's in school though, she obviously can't go as often. I'm not driving an hour and a half to meet on a Friday night just to turn around Sunday morning to do the same thing. He never calls and asks to get her anyway, so this works out for all involved (except probably the most important person involved, MISS PRISS). I'm just so happy that MP doesn't seem to realize the lack of communication on her dad's part...yet. I'm sure it will happen in the next few years, and when that day comes I know that I can say I've done everything that I could to make him part of her life. I think she'll figure everything out on her own, and it makes me unbelievably sad to think of her being hurt. But it's his loss... he's the one losing out on daily recounts of what happened at school, how her friends are, what she's learning, and even how her birthday was. Yeah, he didn't even call her last year on her birthday, actually nobody from his family did. I cried for her, even though she didn't realize he hadn't called. And when she did ask me why her dad didn't call her on her birthday a few days later, I lied for her dad and said he did but I forgot to tell her. I won't be doing that again. I understand he's got a wife and two kids in San Antonio with him, but he constantly forgets about his first born baby girl, and soon she'll be in the know enough to not want anything to do with him. Again... his loss. I just can't imagine NOT wanting to spend every second with this precious girl!
Enough of the ranting... it's Friday! Two days of weekend coming up, yay!
**UPDATE, 1 hour after posting: texted babydaddy's wife (the only one I communicate with, funny huh... I never even talk to him about arrangements anymore because he doesn't have his shit together); trying to find out when the hell I can get her back bc they never responded before... she asks if we can do it Sunday because babydaddy has been out of town all week for training in my hometown. WHAT.THE.FUCK. Why the hell did MP even go then? Mood: back to pissed off. It will be a long ass time before I let her go again... turns out she was at a babysitter's house for the whole week. She could have done that here. On the bright side, babydaddy finally got a job after 5 years so maybe my child support can return to consistent instead of wondering when and if I'm going to get it...
OK, think I'm really done now. At least I hope so.
