Moving On

Monday, September 21, 2020

A few weeks ago my daughter came to me saying her dad is selling his place and moving into a home in the country with his girlfriend. Okay, fine, great for him. My daughter is so excited. As a good mom, I am doing my best to be excited for her. It is something new. With the move, she wants to go back to splitting time with us. Technically she is supposed to be doing this anyway. Her dad has been fine with her living with me full-time. I can honestly say I am sad to hear this. Being my son has moved out, I will be pretty lonely. I asked her if we could do supper once a week when she is with her dad (again, something we are supposed to do anyway). As great and excited all of this is for her, she is having a TMJ flare up. These come from stress. I let her talk about the new place and her dad's girlfriend around me. I want her to have good relationships with them. I let her go over to her dad's when she wants. I really wonder if it is a dog she is excited about. The 3 in my house are my babies since I do all the care for them and they know that. I wonder if things are moving too fast for her. Her dad's house sold before actually hitting the market. He now has 2 weeks to get moved out. This isn't much time. He is moving to his girlfriend's place before they can get into the new place. They are hurrying to get his house cleaned out. My daughter is bringing everything here that isn't furniture. Makes me wonder if all this is causing her stress. She denied it when I asked her about it. It could also be school (she's not a fan of physics). She also has started a job and the training could be a stress. She is an avid Starbucks consumer and knows her drinks already. I just wish I could help her out more.

    It TORE my heart in so many places as my GD was getting older, and I KNEW the time was coming MUCH FASTER than I wanted that she'd be out on her own. I've heard others say "I CAN'T WAIT TIL THE KIDS MOVE OUT!" but I was inside crying,,,,she just grew up WAY TO FAST!!

    Fast forward to now 6 years later. I still see her 3 times a week (sometimes more) and I am taking care of her S who's 3 ,,, 3 times a week!! Now that's so SWEET!!! I totally LOVE IT!! The laughter from the little guy is so much super fun. And the hugs from my GD, precious as they were at his age.

    I LOVE how supportive you are. NOT many are as such. I saw something the other day I immediately sent to my GD "Don't be jealous when you see your ex with someone else. Your parents taught you to give away your old toys you had to the needy." LOLOLOL
