The other day P's dad and I spoke about a possible custody change. She lives with me 99% of the time and visits his family every other Saturday. I like the arrangement we have and I think P likes it too. But we're getting a new house and we'll be moving into it soon. I think too many changes too fast might stress her out. I've asked him to allow her some time to get used to the new house and then we'll talk about it again. I told him that I don't want his new wife having a hand in her discipline. I've also asked that if she cries at first to not make her stay and bring her back to me, he said that he would. I'm trying my best to be nice and workable with my schedule. I've totally avoided any kind of conversation with her dad for two years. So us agreeing on something is totally new to me. I'm worried about my daughter and how she might react to this news. I've mentioned it to her here and there and she's always stated that she wants to stay with me. So I've got alot to think about in the coming months. I only want to do what's right for her.
On Tuesday, P had a dentist appointment. There she learned she has two cavities, which will have to be fixed in December. Then they said that her jaw doesn't sit right or something; I don't have the full details on that one. So she'll have to see a specialist when she turns seven. So, I'll pray about this and leave it in God's hands.Yesterday I purchased two tickets to the Disney on Ice: Finding Nemo. P and I will go on November 25th in Asheville. She is so excited. Unfortunately, T will have to stay home. I don't think she could sit still long enough. But on the upside she will be going to the Dixie Stampede in December, I think she might enjoy that.
Last night P and I talked before we both drifted off to sleep. She talked about her brother and how much she missed him. She talked about her dad. Her dad was asking me if she could start staying with him from Friday until Sunday and I felt that she wasn't ready for such a big change and he hasn't asked since then. But last night P said that he's been asking her. I asked her what she said and she laughed and said "mom, I said NO. Of course. I said that I wanted to stay with my mommy." I know that she loves her dad and I know that he loves her, but he's been gone for two years and usually shows no interest in keeping her for longer than 2 or 3 hours. I worry that she might one day want to move in with him, but right now, I know that she loves her momma. She's been with me this whole time, and I haven't been away from her for more than a day. P always finds ways to let me that she loves me. She's always making me pictures or she has Pop help her write me a letter. And I try my best to let her know that love her each and every day.
T's teacher told me yesterday that she took a few steps. I am very excited, but disappointed that I missed them. I've been working with her at home, but she'll just stand there and then she'll fall to the floor. I am hoping she'll be walking by the time she's a year old. I can't wait for her to walk. She'll be this little bitty thing walking around. CUTE!!!!!
My name is Sarah T. and I live in Cherokee, NC with my LC, Praire. My angel baby is Cylas. I am a single mother and enjoy being a mom more than anything in the world. In March, I was granted temporary custody of my cousin's baby. Her name is Teela and I am praying that I will be able to adopt her in the future and give her the home that she deserves.
