My awesome son turns 2 tomorrow! Man, how the time flies! His dad (my ex-husband) texted today to ask me if I will have extra time tomorrow when I drop my son off for his days to chat about something. I asked him what it is concerning and he says that he’d like to talk to me about the future of him and his girlfriend.
I am floored. I really hope that he’s not about to tell me that he’s proposing.
It may be childish but I feel like I’m close to getting engaged and if they are too, I want it first.
Yes, like a 5 year old. I want. I want. I want.
You see, things ended badly between us and it took everything we both had to put all the feelings aside for the sake of our son. It was hard. Really hard. We both lost friends, there was lots of talk, I lost my job over the matter and it took everything I had to make it right for our son, especially when his girlfriend joined the mix quite abruptly by moving into his apartment after very little time together. I’m thankful for the decent relationship that we’ve seemed to salvage from the mess that was made. Most of our friends and family didn’t recover so well. Sides were taken, things were said, feeling were hurt.
I don’t want to be the one that everyone is whispering about. I don’t want my joyful time to be plagued by other people’s opinions. 🙁
