So you can rant and vent and cry, or you can do something about it. It’s all in the way you think about something or process it. There are times when I can not stand the thought of my Ex and my situation. And I do realize that sometimes I do rant, vent, and mope. I’m human and I’ve gone through a really really crappy situation. Not only that but it’s a pretty fresh situation for me. Other single mom bloggers usually don’t start blogging for a while after the situation. I was thinking yesterday, dangerous I know, but I was thinking about having to take my son back to my Ex as it was his day for him. It’s hard having to hand him over. It’s hard having to share him, not seeing him 15 days out of the month. Can you image all the things I, his mother who birthed him, am missing. I do realize that it’s also the same for his father, but I’m still his mommy. So, trying to deal with the stress of having to share my son I had this really humorous thought yesterday. And it actually works in my favor.
My ex is essentially a glorified babysitter. Seriously, the only upside to not having my son 100% of the time is the ability it gives me to go out on a girls night, a date, or just to relax at home without wondering what surface my child will jump off next. So there is an upside to my torture at least. 🙂
