Great job on the fasting! I am impressed how you deal with your ex. I think you are showing wisdom-you are right , he is trying to control her body and you don't want her to think that is right.

There's a theory that we only have so much willpower - you might be maxing out when you're fasting.  Keep working on making being "yourself" a habit so you don't have to work at it while fasting too.  Good luck!!

Hi Hiraedd!

 

I guess you're coming up to your holiday pretty soon now! (yay!)

 

The fun fitness sounds AWESOME - especially loving the Medieval Day you helped run!

 

I'll sandwich in my agreement with you that your ex is WAY out of line, and your instincts are bang on and you are right to feel anger in defending your daughter.  

 

Getting back to the positives, it's lovely to read that you enjoy shopping for clothes & have some nice summer dresses.  I hope you get to wear them a lot on your holidays! (where are you off to?)

Hi, Hiraedd.

How did the haircut go? How is your summer? How are YOU?

Okay.  So my internet/computer/network crashed last week and it's not coming back for a while.  Hopefully it will get fixed while I'm away (July 14-23) but no promises.  Right now I'm on a borrowed computer.

 

The haircut went well...at least the cutting of it.  She loves it and as a side bonus it looks great, too.  At the same time, she's very nervous about when her dad sees it.  Still no response from her dad about the letter re: the haircut, so we'll see what happens Sunday when he picks her up.  I'm stressing out that I'm going to be out of the country when she's dealing with it there, but we've talked about a safety plan, and my parents are still here for her to come home to, and I couldn't talk to her during that time anyway (he doesn't let her respond to my texts or calls while she's at his house)....so even in Canada there wouldn't be much I could do if things go bad for her.  I'm trying to just let it go, and know that I'll be there to help pick up the pieces.

 

The reno of my bathroom is going incredibly slow.  At this rate I'll be lucky to have everything done by the time the summer is over.  Anyway, it is what it is.  For the record, I can't believe that people mud drywall for a living.  Seriously, you could not pay me enough to do that job every day.

 

I can't tell you enough how encouraging it is to come back (briefly) and see the support from all of you.  Thank you so much.

 

I won't be around now, probably until the 25th of July, unless I snag some internet time at my brother's house.  But watch out, Austin, Texas -- here I come!!  (I seriously cannot wait.  I leave Monday morning at about 6am.  Squee!)

 

Love and hugs to you all.  I'll see you on the flip side!!

There is never a sudden revelation, a complete and tidy explanation for why it happened, or why it ends, or why or who you are. You want one and I want one, but there isn't one. It comes in bits and pieces, and you stitch them together wherever they fit, and when you are done you hold yourself up, and still there are holes and you are a rag doll, invented, imperfect. And yet you are all that you have, so you must be enough. There is no other way.

Shouldn't be an issue, right?  Except it is.  She told her dad and he told her that if she went through with it that he'd "give her a consequence so bad it would make her cry".  She literally wants a tidy up of the haircut she has right now which HE picked for her last year.  But now he's decided she needs something different and says he will grow out her hair all summer and then give her a choice between 3 styles in September.  Ridiculous.  She's 12 years old.  Legally in Canada she has the right to babysit. That's right -- she can look after other people's children and make life and death decisions about them/their safety while she's in charge, but she can't pick her own hairstyle?

 

Thanks, Heidi.  It's so nice to feel like I'm not alone in this, and I know that if I was headed off on a weird tangent you guys would knock some sense back into me, so that gives me more confidence moving forward that it's a fight worth fighting.

 

What's the worst that could happen? I think it will not be anything permanent harm, what your presence and love as a mother wouldn't cure :love_heart:

Whatever happens, you'll be there for her. That's the main thing. All else is secondary. Do the best you can, because this sounds like something

your daughter will remember.
