So most of you know by now that my ex and I decided to let the kids stay with him for a while and go to school there next year. This is a decision that we all (me, the ex, and both the kids involved) gave many hours of thought and discussion to. Cory and I were together until the year Damon started Kindergarten and then we had pretty even, every day shared custody of them for the next three years until we moved out here to Lake Havasu City.
So they have been mostly with me for the last five years. So now that my kids are moving to Vegas, TJ’s mom has got it into her head that he should go live with her. Don, after hours and hours fighting with her, has said ok. So now not only am I losing my older sons during the week, probably for the rest of their childhood, but TJ too.
I loved my life with all my kids here – with all the craziness and upside downess of the world that comes with having five kids at home and I am unbearably saddened by these decisions. Christopher has so been looking forward to going to TJ’s school with him next year and now instead TJ will be going to some ghetto school in Las Vegas living with a mom who works like 100 hours a week and doesn’t discipline him and just lets him do whatever the hell he feels like doing, and Christopher will be sad every week because his brothers aren’t here.
If you have a good ex and good ex situation – count your blessings because this just sucks.
