This blog is being written starting at 7:05pm local time. The big excitement today is that the other Okrongli folk have returned from their family holiday and as a consequence my son has returned. Obviously, it is quite nice to have him with me again. One big challenge of sharing custody so much relates to ‘issues about control’. I did not wish to not have time with him for 2 weeks designated by people who did not ask me for my opinion in the matter although I am a custodial parent and do not only have visitation rights…but seeing as I could trust the baby’s father when he was with me, in general I am aware that I can continue to trust him with the same baby even though he is not romantically tethered to me.
