My kids come home tomorrow!!!!!! Yay!!! I can’t wait! I’ve missed them a bunch. They’ve been with their
sperm donor dad in Texas for 4 weeks. I know my son is ready to come home. My daughter…probably not so much. They have a baby brother from their responsible dad and stepmom and she is in love. Apparently the baby loves her too. He’s only 3 months old and smiles at her like no one else. I can’t help it, but that’s the part that makes me sad. I don’t think she wants to come home. I’m in for days of crying from her.
I wish there was something that I could do to make her feel better about coming home. She’s very much an introverted child. Not much gets her excited, either. She’s not the girl that likes to shop (me neither, apparently where she gets it), she likes to sit in her room and draw, write or read. But, apparently she’s been doing crafts with stepmom while they’ve been at their dad’s. So maybe I can take her to the craft store and get her a project to work on.
This is probably the last time they’ll see their dad for another year, at least. And I highly doubt he’ll call much. He just doesn’t and I don’t know why. I’ve tried to tell him they need to hear from him even if they can’t see him but he doesn’t seem to care.
Oh well, I will do my best to be the best parent I can with my husband. That’s all I can do.
