I've been lurking here for a little while and figured I should introduce myself. I mainly post in single parenting but I'm not so much a single mama anymore.
I'm Jilian, 26 yr old (soon to be 27) mama to "MR. A" who is almost 3. I've been seperated for close to two years now, hoping to finalize my divorce within the next few months. I have been dating my DP for a year now and he has moved in, ex also has a live-in GF. Ex and I are still somewhat amicable despite the occasional fight over custody and child support (or lack thereof). I think once everything is settled in court the fighting will slow down or end. Ex currently has DS 2 nights and one day/night per week. I have him the rest of the time. I'm hoping to the judge will award me at least full custody during weekdays as ex is not able to care for DS during the week (he owns his own business and can't make time). There is also the issue of ex using drugs, etc....I'll leave that one alone for now.
I could go on and on, but that about sums it up. I'm officially de-lurking
