moonlight Posted January 23, 2011 Share Posted January 23, 2011 i just listened to my mom cry for almost a whole hour on skype because of my brother. he was with his girlfriend for 12 years before they had a child together. while she was pregnant, he started cheating on her and left her and the child. he left the house and let her live in the house with their baby daughter. fast forward a couple of years, she started a new relationship and moved in with the guy. now it is not working with him and she is moving into a small apartment. meanwhile, he lives in the house with his girlfriend and her daughter. it drives me absolutely insane that his own daughter has to live in an apartment while this other girl and her daughter live in this huge house. i have no issue with the daughter, but i really feel for my own niece! she is the sweetest little girl and it is just so not fair to her. my nice spends saturday nights with my brother and my mom who is at the moment staying with my brother. apparently he had made plans to go out to dinner with his girlfriend this past saturday and dropped off his daughter to my mom and took off for dinner. during that time, my niece cried and cried for over 2 hours for my brother until she finally fell asleep still hiccuping and crying in her sleep. my mom was so heartbroken and it just sucks to be so far away from family. actually for his sake, it might be a good thing cause at this point i don't know what i would do to him if i got my hands on him. at 33, you'd think he would grow up at some point. just had to get it out. it really really bothers me. i know people start and break relationships all the time, but the poor children really don't get it. you just can't explain anything to a little 3 year old. my mom is trying so hard to love her enough for her father, but it's not enough. she wants her daddy! not grandma...he provides for her in every other way, but i don't think he's as emotionally attached. i just don't get it. my heart feels heavy and always after hearing something about him and my niece, i want to hold my children even closer and be thankful. kwim? seema Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
