Stepmom and biodad are frustrated with difficult child. been there done that, huh? They need a break and difficult child has been begging to stay only at my house except for the every other weekend thing. We are trying it for 2 weeks. difficult child will be with me every night. I am excited and nervous. I am excited because it is they way it is supposed to be. My baby girl should live with me (haha - she is 16 now!). I am nervous, because she is a bear still. She is a teen afterall. I do have some PTSD from the past 6 or 7 years. She can be really moody, but I react much differently to it now. Also, she is 'fine' with boyfriend being there now and then. He even spends the night sometimes when she is there (I think three times!). After almost 5 years of dating - 'bout time, huh?! So, wish me luck. I am a mixture of feelings and emotions about this. Somewhere in between these is where I hope we end up! LOL!
