How many of us can say that we Hate our child’s father? Or is it that we Hate the things that they do to our children? Sometimes our feelings and actions towards our Baby Daddies can be mistaken as our way of still Loving them or wanting them back in our lives. HA! No one can understand how you can Hate someone you used to love because they Love the same person that you do & that person is your child. We just don’t want their father to hurt them like they did us or the same way your own father hurt you when you were a kid. We just want their father to be THERE without all the drama. BUT the only way to get there is to #LetItGo. Just think of how peaceful your life will be when you can see your child’s father without your blood boiling or your fist clinched because you want to beat the living crap outta of him…Woo-sah, Mamas, Woo-sah. That day is near & all You have to do is T-R-Y to Let. It. Go. (Lydia Rouse picked today’s #TTT’s Song of The Day)

I remember when Alicia Keys’ released this song and it quickly became the soundtrack to my life with my Baby Daddy. Too often, we go in and out of a relationship with our children’s father because we want our kids to have their father in their lives. We “think” our children will suffer but the REAL person who is suffering is YOU. Not wanting to Let Go of the relationship is hurting you more than you will ever know. My biggest regret is staying in the relationship for 10 years (years I will never get back) when I knew on year one that I deserved better. Sadly, not all of us realize that we are NOT meant to be with the father of our children. And I’m not male bashing either just stating the “truth” which a lot of us try to ignore. My only wish is that whoever is reading this will not make the same mistakes that I did and the millions of other Mamas who have also!

Somewhere in the world is a Mama who is still in a relationship with her Baby Daddy. She does everything in the relationship: cook, clean, help with homework, and pays for most of the bills. All she asks of him is to pay $300 a month to help with the bills and spend time with their children. On the other side of that world (really on the other side of the home that they share) is her Baby Daddy who complains to one of her best friends that she expects him to do too much.

Trash Talking Tuesday’s Final Note
“Fighting 4 Peace” — At our panel discussion in Atlanta, Georgia, Former Bad Boy exec, Mark Curry said, “You can’t drive me “Crazy” if I don’t give you the keys.” So many of our kid’s fathers have the “keys” to our emotions & it’s time to snatch them back. Letting Go takes time: for Every second of every minute, for every minute of every hour, & for every hour of the day do whatever it takes to make the changes to Live a “Peaceful” Life. You DO deserve it! Be “Crazy” about Yourself & 4 your child!!
