Well, I know I haven't been writing much lately...had a lot going on, and no time or motivation to write anything.
Trystan is doing great...he is FINALLY potty trained!! I'm so excited about that, because we've been trying to get him trained since before Christmas. My mom and I finally decided to just take away the pullups cold turkey, and stick him in underwear all day, and all night. And within a few days, he was sleeping through the night without peeing his bed, and during the day he goes to the bathroom anytime he needs to. My only problem now, is getting him to do that when we're out. Because twice now, we have been at someone's place, and he has decided instead of going to the bathroom to pee or poo, he's just gonna do it in his underwear, and get it all over the person's floor. Not sure what that's about, but I have a feeling it's just laziness. He starts school in September, so I'm REALLY hoping he stops doing that like, soon.
In other, more interesting news, I have decided that I am finally going to file for full custody of Trystan, without visitiation for his father. Why? Well lets see...we got into an argument a couple weeks ago, where I called him a deadbeat, and sent him the definition of one. I also told him that if he didn't like being called a deadbeat, to man up and start taking responsibility for the life he helped create.
Well, that didn't go over so well. He didn't respond to me after that, and about an hour later, he texted me and asked me why I enjoy hurting him. Oh, and then proceeded to tell me that he had actually thought about killing me, Trystan and himself.
...........wait..........you thought about doing what?
I still don't know how to process that...I mean, how selfish can someone be to want to kill his own kid, and his kids mother all over being called a deadbeat?
My first instinct was to call the cops. But I know Doug is practically harmless....although he has gotten violent before...so maybe he actually would do it if he had the chance....I dunno...his mom told me not to worry about it and that he would never do something like that.
THEN WHY WOULD HE EVEN THINK IT?!?!
And you know, despite that, I brought Trystan over to see his father on Saturday, thinking that Doug was just going through something and that it'd be okay.
Well, I was wrong. Dead wrong. Saturday turned out to be nothing but a nightmare from hell. Part of the day was okay, but it didn't end so well. It ended with me and Doug fighting, and Doug yelling at me in front of Trystan. Once he did that, I packed Trystan's stuff up and got us both out of there. OH, and of course, his girlfriend had to put HER two cents in too. Because she knows so much...I'm sure some of you know how that is.
Anyway, after that episode, I've decided that I'd rather Trystan grow up without a father (like I did) than be exposed to someone who is clearly fucked up and needs professional help.
Sooooo yea...that's just a little bit of what's been going on as of lately. Crazy stuff huh?
I'm gonna try to post a pic entry after this one...keyword being TRY. Haha.
I'll make sure I update again soon...or a lot sooner than I did this time. LoL.
