This evening we had a fairly good thunderstorm and it nearly scared the wits out of little Skyler. He was already tired because his sweet Auntie Carrie took him swimming this morning. What a blessing she is to me because she has been helping me out tremendously with Sky during this time when I can barely walk sometimes. He had such a good time in the wave pool, it was his first time ever and he nearly wore her out...but she was such a good Auntie and so loving and let him have so much fun. Thank you Carrie!!!
Later when we got home I got to talk to my other three sweet kids on the phone. There dad has been so great to call me and give me updates on the kids. I would have been quite happy to hang up the phone with them and be content with there happy voices in my ear....but that was not to be had this evening. LOL
Soon after my great phone call with the kids I received another phone call from there dads phone; however, there was nobody on the other end. After saying HELLO HELLO several times and nobody answering I just listened. I was SO LUCKY to overhear my ex husband and my sweet older kids talking about beer, marijuana, and smoking. It was hard to make out exactly what was going on...but my favorite phrase from there daddy was "actually alcohol is worse for you then marijuana because marijuana only makes you silly for awhile."
They were asking there dad many questions about alcohol and drugs upon which he is very educated in. I was trying to keep calm. I couldn't figure out why someone had called me and allowed me to listen in on this conversation. At one point in the conversation that I overheard they were talking about how you should eat food to absorb the alcohol in your stomach, and how the kids would be OK because they have been eating as much as daddy had the whole trip. I was very concerned but I was, LIKE I SAID, trying to keep calm. I hung up the phone and called him back right away and asked him what was going on and told him what had happened. He assured me that the kids had only had a couple sips of beer and they were not drunk.
Lord help me!!!!! I'm telling you, my mind is on my kids tonight........
