Got the kids back tonight. It always makes me happy, but lately I've been finding the little easter eggs of information that The Princess likes to send with them. The boys end up mentioning them in conversation (because they tell me everything!), and I am slowly learning to deal with them.
Here's what came with them this time:
1. She has told them that she is dating Mr. Zero, who they remember used to be our neighbour.
2. When she took her iPad in to be fixed at the Apple Store, it HAPPENED to open on a page of items she wanted to buy from Victoria's Secret, (just in case it wasn't clear to EVERYONE that she is banging Mr. Zero) and isn't that the funniest thing ever?
I have treated both of these as items of non-interest, and didn't ask for more details, as I have in the past. Hopefully this will discourage them from telling me. There is no way anything will discourage her from trying to pass it on.
When I first decided to move out, she told me that her counsellor said we shouldn't date other people for TWO YEARS so that we have time to mourn the relationship, and that we shouldn't introduce anyone to the kids unless we've been seeing them for a year - to make sure it's serious.
I would really like to call her on this, and tell her that I think it was just another attempt at controlling me, but I know exactly what y'all are going to say: Fuck her.
And no matter what I say, I'll never hear the truth, so fuck her.
... but of course it still bugs me!
