Blog Update (The Past)

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Thankfully since I wrote the blog "The Past Needs to Stay There" the hubby has come around a bit. At first he thought I was reacting out of fear and I told him that was not it at all. Once he read the letter our daughter had written, he knew I was right. It couldn't be mailed. A few days later he finally had a good opportunity to sit down and talk with Maegann about it so she now knows more of the "why" behind the relationship changing. She needed to be reminded of how bad those last 6 months were for her and he also told her that it wasn't just about protecting her. It was protecting our entire family as they chose not to believe us about her brother's autism and food allergies and decided it was just bad parenting. He told her was okay to remember the good times because there were a lot of them. Still need to have her make a thank you note for the money that was sent for her birthday especially since it was believed dd was the problem within the relationship falling apart. That may bring some conversation from Maegann about the talk she and her dad had.

Thanks for all the encouragement and prayers!

    Such a young and tender age to go through something like this but through it all she has her family and you are handling it well with her, keeping communication open. Sometimes that's so hard in that we want to protect ourselves and it's easier to not talk about it, even with the kids, than to feel our own pain but get to the heart of the matter with the kids. Good job parenting and dh have taken a hard but necessary road. Your kids will be so much the healthier for it! Blessings, Karen
