Moments I want to remember...

Finally....

Well, life is good and I am so happy. I am happy then I have been in a long time. I am so relieved to be done with all the stress of the babies’ daddy, for the time anyway. On Tuesday I had my court date for custody of my kids. I went to the mediator a few weeks prior and after meeting with her she didn’t think it would be in our best interest to try and resolve things with her but to go to court. This was based off of emails and messages I provided to her, along with the fact he was a no show.

So, I have been anticipating and playing in my head how this would all go down, since the Devil has told me that he would fight me tooth and nail for custody if I fought for it for years, so I never foloowed through. I figured we would be in and out of court for months fighting and debating, a waste of my time, because I know I am the better more fit parent for my daughters’.

The night before I went to see the ex (MF) and hung out with him til the wee hours of the morning to keep my mind off of what was going down in the morning at 10. I had a wonderful evening with him, better then expected. So, that was really nice and he can be truly great when I need him to be. I drove home and slept in as late as possible so that I would get to the court house right at 10, not thinking that I might have a hard time parking and I did.

Arriving at the courthouse I was shaking going in there, the Devil and I haven’t spoken in years and I haven’t responded to his nasty calls or emails recently and now I would come face to face with him if he showed. The other Baby Momma, one of my best friends informed me he knew about it and mentioned missing the first date, so I figured he would be there.

I found the room and went in, traffic court, what???? Turned out our cases wouldn’t be heard until 1030. That meant thirty LOOOOOONG minutes for me to stand in the crowed area waiting for the Devil to show up. They called us to come and he wasn’t there. I listened as they called names and woman went up and were granted sole custody of their children, YEAH, I couldn’t wait be called and then he walked in the door, late none the less. He didn’t look at me and went and sat down. The judge pointed at him and asked him for his case name and we were called up there. I went up first even though he was sitting in front of me. I was feeling like I was going to puke right there in the court room. He asked us our names and roles in my daughters’ lives and then asked, “Devil, do you have any objections to this petition for sole custody.” And I didn’t even look his way, I didn’t hear anything come out of his mouth, but I believe he shook his head no and next thing I know the judge said, “Sole custody granted in the favor of ME, you will receive your paper work in the next couple weeks”. I WAS SO HAPPY!!! I just said thank you and got out of there as quick as I could before anything else could be said. He followed behind me and I never turned back, I guess he went one way and I went the other!!!! I called the other baby momma as soon as I got in the car!!!

YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
