I can`t do this much longer I need to be spending time with my kids not stuck here.
Why are you still up and where are your sisters!
This is not fair ever since dad left you are always working and I have to do everything. I feel like I don`t even have a life outside of this home.
I am still up because I had a date tonight but yet again I`m stuck here watching the twins. Liz hasn`t even left her room to help me.
I`m sorry Justin, I never wanted you to be in this positon, you should be out having fun, not here doing me and your fathers job for us. Thats it I am going to quit that second job we will figure something out. You guys are most important.
Okay, I know that dads the one who left us and you are just trying to support us it just feels like I lost both of my parents lately.
The next day...
I know things have been hard lately but there are going to be changes around here. Starting with me taking you guys out today, come on get up honey.
Mom i can`t do this anymore. I feel so betrayed by dad.
We love you too mom and we appreciate everything you are doing for us.
Me and your dad would always take you guys here as kids. I know Dan leaving had been very difficult for everyone but I am going to be here more now. We will work things out, I love you guys.
