Taking the day off ...

... after a very late night. Dd finally had her breaking moment last night. Reality has hit that her relationship with her husband may, in fact, be over. The hope has disappeared & the despair has set in. In the middle of the night, we had one weeping mama & one frantic baby.

None of us have been thru this before. I've tried to sleep, had a warm bath & finally decided I won't be able to function at the office today. Thankfully, I'm set up to work from home & I had no families booked for counselling today. The roads are bad, the weather chilly & I'm staying in, to catch up on files, catch up on sleep & snuggle our precious grandson all day.

Our families have been intact for generations, so this is a brand new experience. Not one we ever envisioned for our children but one we are in the middle of now as we try to support our eldest & her baby the best we can. I'm hoping it doesn't get messier than this & that they will work towards finding ways to be the best parents they can be, while living apart, hundreds of miles from each other.

Yuck ...


  1. Justice,
    I'm so sorry to hear this. Divorce is very hard (having been through it myself) and especially with a baby.

    I hope that they will eventually be able to work it out. It will be a long road for your daughter, but it's fortunate that she has wonderful parents to see her through.

  2. So sorry for your loss, the break up of a family is so sad! When our children hurt I think we hurt two times as bad. Hugs your way and for you DD and grandson
