Kid #2 who is ostensibly autistic & incapable of conversation called me at work today to tell me about the fun he had at school. He dialed/found my work number all by himself in the hubby's phone, told me about the bubbles & his friend Brian & then gave the phone to the hubby and went back to playing. I am over the moon right now.
Another entry that is not an article! And stuff. Ex is paying back child support in large chunks. He's not caught up yet, but he's closer than I would have expected in such a short time. What this means remains to be seen since I am leaving contact/non contact up to kid #1. Thus far he is still interested in contact, but he's angry with the ex so I don't know what that will look like if it even happens. For the moment this feels a little like hush money which is...strange. But, I have to admit I never really thought I'd get it. It's weird y'all. Just so strange.
