stupid green beens

Being thrust back into to the world of diapers (after almost TEN years) was really no big deal. Just some minor re-acclimation.

Blowouts, however are a different story.

Tyler's most recent was of nuclear proportions. Every article of clothing went directly into the washer. Poo spreading faster than I could clean it up (silly baby and his flail-y grabby hands). Baby had to have a wipe bath before he could even have a real bath. The changing table was just a hair away from needing a firebombing. It was THAT BAD.

I heart lawyers

....or perhaps just mine.

Went to court yesterday with my ex husband. Child support is being recalculated. Butthead is trying to engineer numbers and figures to benefit himself by under-reporting his income, and overinflating his visitation.

I could care less what the he pays me, I just want the figure to be RIGHT. Our legal strategy was to put the proceedings off until the new year as the only legal proof of my income is a W2. We were successful. My ex-husband is not pleasant when the universe fails to exist on his terms and timetable.

He tends to spin out a bit when things don't go his way, and this time I had the distinct pleasure of having someone else deal with that for me. I have to say, it felt good.

Now I just have to find a stand-in to deal with my tween's attitude problem, and I think I'm set. Any takers?

Irony is..... former in laws prefering my current husband's presence over my ex's.
