I swear this is true
Most of you know my story, skid, 10, baby momma a junkie, he lives with us fulltime, has autism and other issues.
BM has been blowing up DH phone to come see her kid, her normal 2x a year visits. I blocked her number. She then called MY PHONE, who I didn't block as she never contacts me. GAME ON. Well I let her HAVE IT, how she's a sorry excuse for a parent and in no way shape or form was I going to let her see her son unless she paid me my child support for doing it, or she got her shit together and started being what a parent should be, INVOLVED, PRESENT, ETC.
Well, she ends up totally upset and texing me how horrible of a mother she is and she's trying so hard to beat her addictions, she's in a program, blah blah blah.....I told her that her son is telling friends at school that he MISSES HER, for chris' sake and she's 35 something and her son is 10 and it's time to get off the drugs, clean up, etc........
So, she and I have been talking and making plans for her to see him. I told her i will hunt her down if she abandons him again, she asked if she can call me when she's wanting drugs, have someone else besides her sponsor to talk to, someone to be a heavy because the shit i said to her really hit her HARD (it was really mean, I tend to hit below the belt)....and she really wants to change. I want to give her a chance. I want to try to help her do it. I think she's never had any real 'tough love' support in her life before, no one who really gave a shit. This child NEEDS AND LOVES HER. And I need and would love a BREAK, and maybe one day when he's grown up, he goes to live with her! (he likely won't ever be able to live on his own).
How did my AWFUL BITCH SELF end up in a situation where I'm going to try to help BM get her shit together???
So, there it is. I've turned SOFT, LOL......
Stay tuned, BM is coming for her spawn on Sat till Monday
