I got woke up this morning at 4am after I finally fell asleep at about 3:30 am. Cory was bringing the baby over to put her in my bed. Of course after he had to wake her up, make her a bottle, change her, put her in the car and drive her over to our house, she was wide awake. Background. Cory has been the one who has had to get up with this baby since day one. Mandy has never got up with this child. She claims she cant hear her and sleeps right through her crying. This means Cory has to get up however many times the baby cries and then he has to get up to go to work at 4am. Mandy was working second shift at a daycare but since school is out she is on first shift. Yesterday she never came home at all. This isnt the first time. It is probably the tenth or more. Cory has missed work a lot because of it. He hates to ask me because I have such a difficult time with the baby because of my medications. Well he knew that Mandy would come get the baby this morning because she had to go to work and the baby goes to work with her. I would just have her a few hours. Cory is so ticked off. He says he is leaving her and taking the baby. I dont blame him at all. He will get that baby. Mandy's record is as bad as Cory's and what judge is going to give a baby to a mother who cant get up with a baby at night and who doesnt come home at night so she leaves the baby alone? Cory completely takes care of that child. He pays for the daycare. He buys all the diapers, he takes her to the doctor. He is the one who sits up with her when she is sick. Oh Mandy likes to dress her up and buy her tons of shoes but that isnt being a mother. A mother doesnt go out and get drunk and not come home all night so the father can go to work the next day. If I had done that to Tony, he would have been a single father raising 3 boys on his own. And it wouldnt have taken me doing it 10 times! The 2 time and I would have found my stuff on the lawn. I know we have said Cory could never come home again but if he leaves Mandy, he has a room waiting for him and the baby. Family is family and this would be that type of emergency. He has grown up so much that we would step in to help him that way.
