Ant called me last night to let me know that C was two weeks late. C is always on time. I asked how they felt about that.... C has to get out of jail and the restraining order has to be lifted before they can really talk about it. C is a year clean from Drugs, but like most recovering addicts, it takes awhile for them to get that Alcohol is also a drug. Anyways, Ant tells me that she's so sweet unless she drinks. She was drinking and they started fighting. They pull over to continue to fight. A cop comes by to see what is happening just as C gets out of the car. She is in violation of her probation by being drunk. And Ant has bite marks on him so she also has a domestic violence charge. Ant's already been in contact with the Prosecutors office, C has to get out of jail before they can lift the restraining order. But they are allowing Ant to talk to her by phone. Guess Ant's theory about being sterile wasn't true. (will he ever learn to listen to me. He thought he was sterile since his first girlfriend never got pregnant..... and Yes - Ant says it's his) So, what should be a joyful celebration isn't. I'm sitting here shaking my head. What are the chances of these two difficult children sticking together for the next 18 years? And if they don't, will I get to have a relationship with this grandchild? What a life, to be raised by two difficult children!! And then, Ant has been doing well. He's slowly growing up. I so hope this isn't a setback for him. With luck - (rattling beads, fingers/toes crossed) - with luck, maybe this will be the catalist to have both of them grow up. I want to be pleasantly surprised by those two growing up and growing old together.
