BebeLeger 2.5 year update!
« on: May 04, 2012, 08:55:02 am »
I can't believe that it has been 2.5 years of the crazy ass rollercoaster called my married life.  Well on the administrative side lol, we are still waiting for our permanent green card, he went for his fingerprints back in Nov 2011.  We went to DR in March for a week and had a blast, it was just me, hubby and the baby, we left my step son becuase of school and most importantly we did not want any baby-momma drama over there with his mother, since we still do not have the court order that states we have full custody we did not want to take our chances by taking him and then having her sign anything to leave, I believe it was best to leave him.  He stayed in my mother's house with all my nephews, he loved it. 

We have been working for the same company for about a year now, I am the accounting manager and he is working as an auditor/field tech, we upgrade cell phone sites for the major cell phone carriers.  It is a very rewarding job and I love my coworkers and boss, this company has a lot of growth potential and amazing opportunities. 

Well I finally was able to get rid of my sister in law the classy way, I spent a lot of time filling out college applications and writing college essays with my husband for her, because honestly she would not have been able to do it on her own, meanwhile I don't speak to her still and never will.  But at least I was able to help my husband with this last request to "supposebly" do it for his mother "que se estaba volviendo loca" well I only agreed because all in all my mother in law is a decent person and did not want her in DR "debaratando cuarto a dos mano" basically just spending money like it was not hers.  She got into this community college with dorms up state about two hours from my house, the only thing I asked in return was that she never NEVER be let back into my house again, which my husband has been very good about, she had spring break and stayed in a hotel with her financial aid refunds she paid for that. OK enough about her.

My step son is another part of the equation that has given me a really hard time, but I finally realized that the only people that kids has is me and my husband, therefore I have learned to love him with everything that comes with it.  I have been thorugh heartaches and tears with this kid, but in the end I believe it has been worth it because it has solidified my marriage as well.  Aside from all the behavioral issues he has had a couple of medical problems as well, we have been taking care of them one by one.  All in all I think  I have come to terms with stepmotherhood and I am actually enjoying it a little bit.  I sit with him every night and we do homework, ready and basically bond a little.  I just bought him a bike for the summer and I can not even explain how his eyes lit up and specially how that made me feel.

My daughter is another story....OMG she is 2.5 going onto 20, she loves nail polish, lipstick and all the adult things.  She loves playing with the ipad, I can not believe how children now adays can manipulate technology like is nothing.  She plays his music, videos, there are dora games, and she loves agrey birds, she is not that great playing it but loves to see them.  Even though she loves all the adult things we don't allow her to use lipstick or nailpolish, or anythign like that. She is defintely daddy's little princess. 

We as a couple are doing great, I mean we have our ups and downs but honestly what marriage doesn't, it would be very hipocritical to sit here and tell you we don't fight.  Of course we do, we fight about different methods of educating the kids, we fight about money, we fight about family and fight about things, all married people fight.  But at the end of the day all those little fights without importance helps make our marriage work.  We are both very different and have different opinions about many things, but that is exactly what makes our marriage work and stay strong, I complement each other nicely.  I would never paint a picture like we are a perfect couple, that would be very deceiving, but I can certainly tell you that we make it work and our love for each other is defintely the glue that holds everything together.

It has been quite an exciting rollercoaster ride for the past couple of years but I am here still giving it my all. 

Mar, yes I am actually trying my best to make sure he feels equally loved.  I have had difficult times with him, specially medical things that have come up, his ped found out he has a missing a testicle and it was devasting to learn that this could possibly cause him to be sterile or even cause some kind of cancer.  We are going to a urologist in the coming weeks.  We also found out he had some type of speech problem, I spoke to the teacher and took him to a speech therapist.  They recommended I took him to get his ears cleaned because he was having a hard time hearing.  Well we went to an ENT specialist to get his ear surgically cleaned, it seem from birth to 5 years old right before I brought him here, they never cleaned his ears and when they did they cleaned them the wrong way by pushing the wax in so he had a black tarp of wax covering his ear canal.  It was crazy to see how much was taken out from  his ears, since then everything has been much better with his speech and listens more attentively.  On another ocassion we started to notice he was having extreme bad breath and no matter how many times he brushed or how many times he rinse it was still there, it something internal and we again took him to the doctor to find he had something hard covering his stomach, we took him for x-rays, the doctor told his because he was always constipated the poop started building inside his stomach and we need to give me laxatives and other meds to help, again a problem that started at an early age and without attention it built up to this. 

To make matters worse, we went to DR in March and we saw his mother 3 times and she never bothered to ask for him.  She did not even inquire on why we had not brought him with us, nothing nada zippo!  what a digusting human being, I asked my husband, without disrepect, how did you have a relationship with such garbage.  Because I could not comprehend why she was behaving like that, she just simply did not care, but I guess I always knew, is just confirmation sometimes is harder.

TB, I know these kids and their technology she drives me crazy sometimes, can you believe I had to buy her a 3DS because she would not leave her brother alone.  Awww your little princess has to be adorable. 

D-MO, hurdles, I think more like wall lol, but I have managed to climb over them with a lot of strength and courage my friend.  It has not been easy.
