I HAVE to TOTALLY agree! I mean, dang..I do it alone enough now, that it would probably not be that much harder! But, then there are days like today when he has had difficult child ALL day. Yes, he totally will be over stimmed tomorrow after a day of SpiderMan 3 Movie and playing with cousins with little supervision...but I did get a day of peace!Put me on the list of not's
I believe we are still together now only because after dealing with all my difficult child's antics I had no strength left to get a divorce
I second that statement. I am amazed at the stories of spouses being the step dad of difficult child's. I don't think there is any man out there I could trust enough not to beat my difficult child when he is having one of his difficult child moments. Neither me or my kids has ever been physically abused, but I can't imagine any man being able to keep his cool during one of my difficult child's rages. Heck, I carried him for 9 months, gave birth to him, and love him more than I ever knew you could love before I had kids, and sometimes I want to beat him! I wouldn't even trust his bio dad to be alone with him, even if he wanted to (which he doesn't).It would take someone pretty amazing for me to marry again and I just don't think he exists.
