I am still working on trying to get this into the papers.
I have panic attacks at the thought of OW being around DD and new baby and simply cannot fathom it. Nearly ExH threatens in a jovial way that "someday" they will meet and I hope I am on another planet when it happens.
One other minor holiday we hassled about was Easter, also. I am not overly religious but like to know the symbolism behind holidays and nearly ExH doesn't care, so I asked for that time.
A hard thing for me, just for chat, was the idea of every other year for DD's birthday. I couldn't handle being separated from her on her birthday right now, even if it's selfish. This was a really hard thing to do, especially with things so far ahead and unknown.Ashland 13
