It is amazing the incredible let-down I feel on Tuesdays at 5:00 when I find out that yes, Mom did confirm for a family visit tomorrow. (Per court orders she is to confirm a visit 24 hours in advance. The visits are supposed to be on Wednesdays from 1:00 to 3:00. But as long as Mom calls sometime on Tuesday before Minnie is done for the day, Minnie says the visit is on.)
I hate to sound so negative. But it seems so pointless.
And now that the kids know what to expect (all four of my little ones)...I can pretty much write off the entire damn day. Dysregulation will abound.
I struggle to see the good in this.
