The monsters have returned. Rant revisited

Last Update: June 12, 2021

A couple of years ago, right about this time of the year, I wrote a post about the monsters coming to our home. Here is the link to that post: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/karin13/blog/the-monsters-ar...

I'm sad to say that once again, the monsters have returned only this time they came bearing gifts.

My granddaughter is now 8-years old. Her mother left her when she was 6 months old. We have been raising her since that time.

Sometimes her "mommy" won't call for months at a time. Then for a while, she will call every day for a week or so. My granddaughter is so confused I don't know how to help her except to just keep on loving her and trying to protect her from the "momsters."

One thing that we did this week is worked together on some fun videos for her YouTube Channel. The temperature has been in the 90s the past few days so we decided to see if an egg would literally fry on the sidewalk.

We did videos showing the progression. I think the egg actually dried out more than fried, but it sure was fun to do something with her to keep her mind off of her confusion.

I have to keep my mind off the confusion, too. It has been sad to worry about her life when she is visiting with her mommy... I don't trust her mommy. I am really struggling, so I made a list of things to work on for my blogs so that I don't think about things so much.

Today was especially hard because the "momsters" were taking her shopping with them (again! What are they trying to buy? Her affection? Most likely...) and out to a Chinese restaurant because she likes that. When I saw that car pull out of the driveway I was scared. What if they decided to try taking off with her? Just because we have primary physical custody doesn't mean they wouldn't try to kidnap her...

When she left, my granddaughter put her special Baby Yoda stuffed animal next to my computer so that I would "think about her." Trust me, she didn't need to do that. I am always thinking of her!

Anyway, the momsters leave on Tuesday and I am so happy about that... End of my rant...

I hope you have all been enjoying productivity!

Best wishes,
Karin

Karin,

Am touched by the history with the momster. Your grand-daughter is absolutely adorable btw. My love and prayers are with you and your family. You show a lot of strength and love in your care of her and your family. It takes a strong "mom" to take on that responsibility (yes, you are the mom in my eyesight).

In that temp weather, you'll have a better chance frying an egg on the hood of your car than on a sidewalk. The metal will be a lot hotter on metal. Use plastic/wood utensils. Most of all, have fun.

My love and prayers are with you and your family for your strength to continue.

God Bless,

Trent

Thank you, Trent. I truly appreciate what you have said.

We will have to try our egg experiment on the car hood next time!

Whatever does this have to do with WA? That is what posting here is SUPPOSED to be about. This isn’t Facebook.

We are also supposed to treat people with kindness. A fellow WA member reached out to the community in a time of deep emotional stress. While your point may be technically correct, it could have been made with an ounce of compassion and kindness.

I understand what you are going through although I may not relate to what you are going through but I know you have this will power to protect your granddaughter until she gets a bit older to realize who these 'momsters' are.

I wish you all the best in your productivity as well.
