Wedding kisses

The little man in my life has recently taken to asking for a wedding kiss. I’m not sure where this has come from or how it actually started but it is very cute.

A wedding kiss is a kiss on the back of each of our hands whilst looking in each others eyes. If I don’t look into his eyes he says it is all wrong!

It amazes me what a three year old sees, hears and learns. They say they are sponges and I have to agree with that.



Emotional roller coaster

Have you ever been on one of these? I ended the year on one and started the year on one! Not how I planned it at all….

Many of my friends tell me how strong I am, which I may have mentioned before, but in reality I’m not.¬†Munchkins father decided just before Christmas that he had other commitments that would not allow him to see our boy on Christmas Day as per the court orders that have been in place for nearly two years. ¬†In one way it was great as I got to spend the entire day with him but he didn’t see his dad, not that he really cared. I found out later that the commitment was surf patrol!!!! As the president can you not change your shift so that you can spend time with your son? Am I asking/assuming too much here?

He did have him on his usual Friday night and then after pick up on the Saturday we flew to South Australia for a mini break. We arrived home on the Wednesday in time for drop off at 4.30pm. I received a few texts with regards to him wanting to change the place for drop off on the Friday night which I wasn’t happy with as had to cancel a play date but was willing to do it. Then I receive a text saying he can’t have him Friday at all as his other children’s nippers carnival had changed and could we swap to Saturday night. Again happy (sort of) to do this and said it would be a 5pm pick up and a 3.30 drop off the next day.

I then received a text saying that “he was beyond wanting to deal with me and he would not be meeting me this week at all and he would see our son the following week.”

This gutted me as I felt extremely upset for the munchkin as I had been saying to him that he was going to see dad that night and then he pulls this crap at the eleventh hour! Makes my blood boil that he can behave in such a manner towards us both and expect that he is constantly in the right.

Not sure if any other single parents out there are in a similar situation or not but I can certainly take or leave this roller coaster I have been riding since we separated over two years ago. It was one of the reasons I went to court to get orders in place so crap like this wouldn’t occur, got that wrong didn’t I?!?

I just have to hope this year is a better year than the past ones…..
