N came home from b/f's last night to put the baby to bed. While waiting for Aubrey to fall asleep she tells me that she and b/f got into a fight. I'm instantly envisioning major dramatics. lol But N swears it wasn't like that. She said b/f was pulling the usual tactics to get his own way. But she'd had it with his behavior. Calmly she told b/f they were finished. She wanted no more to do with him. She started packing up hers and the baby's things. (she accumulates stuff over there) So I just had to ask if she was serious when she'd told him that. She said she was dead serious. She doesn't deserve to be treated like that and she's had enough of his dramatics. I guess when b/f saw she wasn't playing games he crumbled and started begging her to stay with him and apologizing for his behavior. I don't know what agreement was reached, but N decided to give him one more chance. And yes my first thought was SOOOOO CLOSE! Still, I think this is progress. And I'll take what I can get. I told her that I was proud of her for standing up for herself. Then I shut my mouth lest I say too much. I'm hoping upcoming college will give N a new sense of confidence and self worth, and hopefully a new more objective view of how b/f treats her. LOL, N interrupted me while I was trying to post this. She came home from b/f's early again tonite. (way early) We spent the evening over at my best friend's house. I haven't been able to get her to do that since they started dating. Hmmmmmmmm.
