Dear ex-husband of My Best Friend,
Not that it's any of my business...but how dare you?
How dare you call my best friend, who is pregnant, while she's home alone because her husband is out of town, and drop a bomb shell on her like, "I think the kids should come live with me."?
What's that you say? Oh, you miss them. Well, that's one of the unfortunate side effects of walking out on your family and hooking up with someone else!
Do you even realize that when my Best Friend was devastated and heartbroken because her husband didn't want to work things out, when you were out re-living your youth, her children were the one thing she had that helped her stay anchored and keep it together? They were her life and her reason for being strong.
And now you want to take that away from her too?
I'm sure you don't realize how utterly selfish you are being, because I know you do love your children. However, perhaps if I spell it out for you, you will understand. My Best Friend didnt choose this. You did. And while I'm sorry you miss your children, I don't understand at all how you think it would be okay for my Best Friend to have to miss them so you can feel better. See how this doesn't make any sense?
I thought you'd see it my way. Now, no more of this nonsense, okay?
Ticked off Best Friend who has to keep her mouth shut and not cause trouble, so she has to post it on her blog instead.
Oh, and p.s. My Best Friend's new husband could totally kick your trash! (and I know he wants to!)
I'm linking up to Shortmama's "Dear Someone" linky party! Go here to check it out!
Update: I feel the need to clarify a couple of things: Although I am REALLY ticked off that this guy has the guts to ask for this kind of a sacrifice from my friend, and think it's really selfish, I want to make sure you know that he's not the same guy he was when he left his family. Since then he has done a lot of repenting, apologizing and trying to make up for his choices. He's good to his kids, and is generally very cooperative with my friend...just once in awhile he does something really idiotic like this. I just felt guilty for unintentionally painting an inaccurate picture of the way he is NOW. But, even when you repent of a poor choice, it doesn't mean you still don't have to suffer the consequences!
