Right after the divorce Gabi began her acting out, because Daniel had always let her have her way.I didn’t.
There were bedtimes, there were nutritional meals, there was proper behaviour. There was school work to be done before television is watched.
She knew if she lived with Daniel she could do whatever she wanted which is why she always would cry out that she wanted to live with him.
When finally his work load had eased and he had time I could use it to get rid of Gabi.
I provoked an argument just before summer break, and she ‘won’ and got to spend it with her father. She also got Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and every weekend.
This meant I could actually have a life. I could date. I could meet someone. And I met Brad.
