So let it be.

The truth

Today my ex and I had yet another convo about his move and his request for custody of the kids.

We have two girls, C. and S., ages 4 and 18mos., respectively.

Q. Why? Why does he want custody?
A. Because he is a "trad" Catholic who believes in having his children in a small town, homeschooled, wearing skirts and associating with members of that same community.

If I were still of that ilk, which I believe a part of me is because I see his point, I would be 100% in support of his cause. However, I've been struggling to get back on my feet this past year, since the separation and subsequent divorce, and he is using that struggle to further his intent.

This is very unhappifying.

I'm a single mom, a full-time student and a part-time maid. And yet it doesn't matter, I will never be enough for him to just let me be.

I can't just be the mom I want to be; I can't just do homework and go to school and get my work done. There is always something he is bugging me about.

And I realize it's most likely because I have trouble saying NO.
