Every year, I am surprised at how much it hurts to hear about the people I am related to (I loathe calling them “family”) going to their Christmas celebrations without me.
Because they are taking all of these moments From Me.
It’s not enough that they got their first steps.
It’s not enough that they got Thanksgiving.
It’s not enough that they got THEIR SECOND BIRTHDAY.
They could have invited me, but they didn’t.
Do you want to know what my mother said to me when I, incredulous, asked her why on Earth she hadn’t told me that she had Lilly for the weekend shrilly a couple years ago?
She replied, “I am NOT ABOUT to TELL YOU when YOUR DAUGHTER is here!!”
And all I could say was, “Why?”
Why would you not???
How could you?
And so it continues:
They could have let me know that they were taking them [my children stolen from me] to New York for Christmas for the day but they didn’t.
I could have seen the smiles on my boys’ faces when they opened their gifts, but it wasn’t.
We could have eaten and laughed and shared and enjoyed together but it didn’t.
Didn’t bother to let me know.
This is when the Cutters Cut, because this is what Hurts the Most:
It’s not just a Forgetful Oopsie, They DIDN’T WANT YOU there. They went out of their way to make SURE you wouldn’t be there.
You’re not Family Any More.
We’ll take the kids, (of course!), but YOU?
Stay in your corner.
You’re on punishment.
Just shut up okay?? I mean we had to bring our fucking attorney….ah, ack; Hm,…ahem….AHEM! I MEANT .
I Meeeeeaaaant, Jaimi’s New Booooooooooooyfriend!!!!!! *applause* *applause* *applause*
Well she finally hooked a sinker!
I mean a keeper!
I mean, who cares if the guy is legally blind and has the whole balding, middle-aged droop going on and basically just does whatever Jaimi tells him to as long as he keeps spittin’ out money…..
So how do you like this:
THE ATTORNEY THAT IS KEEPING MY KIDS AWAY FROM ME GOT TO SPEND CHRISTMAS WITH THEM AND I DIDN’T.
