Blended Families

I really REALLY hate this

Well, the kids are on the plane headed to DC's. They are both armed with cellphones and both phones have the GPS trackers installed.

I spent the last week talking up this trip with them and trying to get them excited to see DC. This morning at the airport I totally held it together when I hugged and kissed them goodbye. Their plane just took off and I'm sitting here at their gate bawling. I keep telling myself this trip won't be like last time. I keep telling myself that the kids have to be given the opportunity to try and have a relationship with DC. But damn this is hard.

Is it August 8th yet?

  • I feel for you. Try to stay positive.. I know easier said than done.. I don't know what happened last time but have seen some of your posts about the phones and things and I really hope everything works out for you and them.

  • This is a good thing.  Your kids are older, wiser and stronger this time round.  

    YOU are stronger and smarter this time round.

    And a$$wipe knows he is on notice this time round.

    Yessss! The only reason that d-bag was able to pull it off was because he caught you by surprise.

  • Everything everyone else said is what I can get on board with. He, and his crazy family, don't have the element of surprise this time around. I hope this trip is fun for the kids and in the awful chance something happens like last year, they have an idea of how to react.

  • I wasn't on the board a year ago so I don't know what the history is, but I just wanted to say that I hope all goes well for this visit and that your worries are set to rest.

    I was also wondering what the DC abbreviation means? sorry, I just can't figure it out...

    DC = douchecanoe

    Last year when the kids were out there, DC took my son's phone away and basically hid the children.  They only see him once a year and they always have a lot of apprehension when they go.  So for almost 2 weeks, the kids were not able to text me, call me, or email me.  DC kept the kids at random people and relative's homes so that I couldn't find them.  The police were involved, I got an Emergency Order, it was a mess.  We live in CA and he lives in TN so it was really scary and stressful.  We had a follow up hearing recently and the Judge gave DC "one more chance".

    I could not figure this out for the life of me either, but the other day someone used douchecanoe in conversation, and all I could think after that was 'Oh, I figured out Jo's ex's abbreve!!!!!!'

    I understand all of your anxiety but I second/third/fourth/fifth that your kids are armed with more knowledge and cel phones with GPS this year, it will NOT be a repeat!  That said, I hope Aug. 8th comes faster than we think.  Thinking of you and your family, you have been through a lot. 

    If being a math nerd is wrong, I don't wanna be right!
  • ((hugs)) There isn't anything to say that hasn't already been said. Praying for you to stay strong and I'm just hoping he doesn't try anything funny this time.

  • Thoughts and prayers Jo! You have had a rough couple of weeks and I hope they get better for you. I can't imagine how hard it is, but hopefully you can find some time for yourself while they are gone and that the few weeks will go fast.

  • Keeping you in your thoughts Jo.  I really hope things are uneventful this go- around and DC is able to build your trust back up a little bit so that these visits aren't so hard on everyone going forward.
