Kids' mom called this morning asking to see the boys today. I set myself up for an argument on her part but told her if she was willing, I would meet her at he park by our house and we would spend as much time as we could. It went prettty well. the boys didnt ask where she had been, why she hasnt been here, or anything like that. they seemed to take it at face value. She was here, she was gone, now she is back. They told her they were happy, active in sports, doing great in school, etc.... She had brought them a basketball, as the park we met at had a basketball court. She told them they could go play hoops if they wanted. Well, of course, they did. Which left me alone with her. She started off by telliing me how much she missed me, the boys, being a mom, all of that stuff. I kept my mouth shut. I didnt know what was coming but then again, I did. She asked if we could start over and be a "couple" again. I kinda laughed, with no humor or malice, and tol dher it was way past that point. ALL I am worried about is having what is best for the boys, and getting them ready for college, etc..... She threw a fit, not in front of the boys, thank the lord. I told her the visit was over and maybe we cold do it again soon. She said she is going to modify her custody petition to just vistiation. I guess that will come out in the wash. But , all in all, it was a great day for the boys Stopped on the way and let them buy her some roses and develop some pics off their digital cameras for her. I am not stressing near as much as I was. Thank you all for all the great advice. :D
Very grateful for my two boys.
