That is how Aubrey greeted me this evening when Nichole brought her home and she crawled up into my lap. There was no Mommy hit Daddy. Just Daddy hit Mommy....she kept saying it over and over again. Nichole was clearly upset and trying very hard not to cry. But she said nothing. Although I let her know that Aubrey told on her daddy. Nichole gave Aubrey a late supper and put her to bed. boyfriend called a while after that on his cell phone. Nichole hung up on him. Since he was on his cell he was parked in the alley which is right next to our driveway. She eventually went out to "talk" to him. I was attempting to watch tv since it was storming and I couldn't be on here. But I got bits and pieces as it wafted thru the open window. Same old same old on boyfriend's part. Nichole is mental because she won't admit he's right. blah blah I don't really know what the fight is about this time. But right before it got quiet boyfriend was telling her not to come over and she told him she'd be packing the baby's things. He told her tomorrow, she said no cuz she's job hunting and apartment hunting tomorrow. I dunno what's what. He left. I don't know if she got in the car with him. But I didn't hear her car. And I just checked and her car is still here. This is really awful, but I'm glad they took the fight over there. (evil snicker) I didn't want to have to call the cops which neither kid knew it but I'd dialed half of the number just as it had got quiet. I meant what I said a year ago when I told boyfriend I wasn't having the drama routine over here. He may be arguing with my kid, but it's my property and I'll have him removed. What his parents choose to do is their business and their problem. I don't see how she stands it. Truly I don't. I'd have bailed on someone like that ages ago. As difficult child as her dad is he would no more than attempt the carp this kid does than the man on the moon. He knows the door would be kicking him in the arse as I tossed him out it. She knows he manipulates. She knows he messes with her mind so he can be in "control". It drives her over the edge. Although she is still handling it as an adult and not the way she used to. She tells him exactly what he's up to........yet for some reason can't seem to get the umph need to just end it already. I know I can't give her that umph. If I could I'd have pushed her over it already. lol But if I can get her to listen, or even sit still long enough, it's time we have a serious mother/daughter talk. This has got to stop. Aubrey does NOT make up stories. She tells the utter blunt truth. So I now know for a fact that boyfriend hits Nichole. Something I've suspected for years. Somehow if Nichole can't make the break for herself she has to be made to see how important it is for Aubrey. And not to mention I can just see the ramifications of Daddy hit Mommy when she tells the day care teacher! I hope this time I can find the right things to say.
