Hi All -
Thank you so much for your kind words of support.
We are going along here. I found 2 daycares that have openings (all the recommended ones were full)- they seem so crowded, but well - I have to do the best I can!
We went out of town for a couple of days - it was so nice to leave the house and reality behind...
My son - poor little guy- finally said he missed his dad yesterday and asked when he could come home. Then he was all "it's not true mom, can he come back now" but by this morning he was talking again about how his dad just laughed when he left the room & how he didn't like it. Poor guy - it has to be extremely confusing for him.
I am in therapy and the psychologist is giving me a lot of really great stratigies to help my son when he starts freaking out and it has been good for me to have a neutral person to talk with.
I will be glad when my in-laws leave next week in many ways - it will be good to have my house back, but I am sure it will be a big adjustment for ds to be away from home for so many hours each day/week.
Its been just over a month now since his dad has been out of the house. I am wondering what is going on legally, etc. but we are holding on here and doing ok.
Thank you all for your kind words. It really is nice to read.
