Hi Dr. Michael,
I really feel like you are my Therapist minus the couch...I think I had some comic relief yesterday:
So we received our tax refund, and I was so excited to go to my hairdresser and get some long over due highlights. She started applying color and discreetly asked me if my head itched. I have lice! My nine year old is really bad about giving me those notices from school. I have escaped the lice thing for 47 years, why now???
My kids were supposed to be with their dad this weekend because yesterday was his birthday. So I texted my ex and told him to check the boys for lice. When I came home my 17 year old was at my house sleeping
. He usually stays at my house until his dad asks him to go to his house. I left him sleeping and went to the pharmacy to get Rid. When I came home my son was gone. I assumed he was playing tennis which is the norm for Friday nights.
He then calls me kind of laughing. He told me his little brother did
have lice, and they hadn't checked him yet., I then went a million miles an hour about the lice thing. He finally interrupted me and said "Mom, the lice thing is no big deal, I have to tell you something!" He said, dad woke me up and insisted I go to his house because his mom and XXXXXX had lice. He goes over to his dad's house and is greeted by his dad and his on and off very young girlfriend (who my son had never met). My ex introduced them, and then said "here is my birthday present'. It was an new born baby! My son said he was speechless and walked outside to call me. I asked him if it was a boy or a girl, and he said "I don't know".
So this girl has been my ex-husband's "Mark" ever since I remarried. She is in her late 20's where my ex-husband just turned 52. She comes from a wealthy family, and is a registered nurse. It is clear from the past that my ex has been able to "buy" her which is the only way he can get women. After one of the times she dumped him he bought her a "boob job" and he put it on his Credit Card. He actually admitted that in court. She dumped him again after the surgery.
I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX baby is his, but I'm sure he is going to be the hero and most likely adopt the baby and marry her. If that is the case, she has no idea what she is in for....
Ok, now here's where you come in. Although I feel for this girl, we all make our own choices. Am I wrong for being thrilled about this? I already feel the weight being removed from me. I really hope he marries her.
Things are progressing well with my husband's ex thanks to you, and your guidance...
My husband has an all day Final Interview for an awesome job.
Things are definitely looking up, but I still have lice. Yuck!
