I didn't go...kc

to swimming yesterday. I am actually quite proud of myself...I put myself first for a change...there was a time when I would have thought I HAD to go...despite the fact that it would be unbelievably upsetting and painful.

I'm so glad to be getting better! My daughter was upset for about 2 minutes- until she found out we were going to a friend's house. She did have a BIG freakout last night though...an hour long tantrum...I called my ex to let him know we were having problems again, which I didn't want to do- I've been putting it off for a couple of weeks, hoping it wouldn't escalate (we've had these types of problems with her in the past, but it has been about 6 months since the last one)

He was a bit ass-kissing, but it's better than being an ass-hole I guess. I know I'm in a recycling phase here...I think about reasons I could contact him...think I'll pop into the no contact club.

I stil think he was setting me up somehow...why would he want me to go to a place where he KNOWS the woman who broke up my family would be there? I don't understand it....

Oh well...if he was trying to get a reaction from me, he failed. ha!

Thanks for the support yesterday everyone. kc

She's 4....I saw a psychologist last fall when she was really struggling from the stress and I was really, really worried about her.....it was wonderful. There isn't much to do with little ones, but there's lots to do with mommy and daddy in terms of how to help.

A combination of therapy plus a cooperative parenting course, and a good dose of Dr Phil really turned things around for her. She's been thriving and really doing well- her daycare can't believe she's the same child...one of the most well-behaved kids there...I figure if she's good with others, she's doing ok- even if she is a little saucier with me...(aren't we all a little worse for mom?)

I suspect last night was about testing mommy...to see if I'll still stick to my guns (she learned I will!) :)plus being tired and she does find it hard...she wishes we were still together and that's tough for her.

It's nice to have friends with kids the same age...to hear that some of the things she does are totally normal and age appropriate...mommies seem to have some sort of built in guilt gene...sometimes talking to other mothers alleviates a bit of that!
