The Single Mom's ODE TO CHILD SUPPORT

                                  ODE TO CHILD SUPPORT


Hi ho, hi ho, It's off to court I go,
Oh, wait a sec and hold the cuffs,
He's reached in his rear and found just enough
Hi ho, hi ho, hi ho, hi ho,
Oh no, here we go again
Another month late, maybe now I'll win,
Hi ho, hi ho, hi ho, hi ho,
This will never end I know it so,
For my health I should just let it go,
Hi ho, hi ho,
His kids don't want him near,
It's ok, he's never here,
Hi ho, hi ho, hi ho, hi ho,
What's the charge for abandonment,
His kids' trust in him has up and went,
Hi ho, hi ho,
Whatever will I do,
It's all on me, and he knows it too,
Hi ho, hi ho, hi ho, hi ho,
I need to use some control,
But I'm always on jerk patrol,
Hi ho, hi ho,
I guess it's just as well,
For his deeds he may end up in h#%*,
Hi ho, hi ho, hi ho, hi ho,
Let's give him the benefit of doubt,
While all along his kids go without,
Hi ho, hi ho,
My nerves are shot and I am drained,
The kids' needs never seem to wane,
Hi ho, hi ho, hi ho, hi ho,
I must admit,
This is all a load of s#%*
Hi ho, hi ho, hi ho, hi ho,
There are welfare moms everywhere
Let's make all dad's do their share,
Hi ho, hi ho,
Just do the right thing all along,
And WE won't have to sing this song!
Hi ho, hi ho, hi ho, hi ho!

Not all men are the same nor all women.If we choose to Love the one who is out. Then we should not lie on the loved one who lies. But speak well of the one who is out! At lease for the kids sake. Spitting our self made Judgements is no love for our kids and selling ourselves short all the time.

I am not sure I understand what you just said and I don't want to misinterpret it. We all have different situations and our perceptions of those situations are based on a lot of experiences. I don't think you can "walk in someone else's shoes" unless you have been there the whole walk. We should be able to share our different situations with one another without also judging in return. Thank you so much for your thoughts!

If we could change the STORY of society about single moms, then we will change the STORY of no dads in the home. Say it the other way! Change the STORY of no dads at home, then change the STORY of single moms. If family is close to heart then love that. If stepping out is the desire of ones heart then it is what it is. It would do us good and our kids also to not lie and judge the one who steps out. For in doing this sets FREEDOM high in our hearts to find the desire of our LOVE.
Thank You for being Kind in your words.

Your wording confuses me! I don't know if you are saying I lie and judge, because then you would be judging me without all the facts, or if I am completely misunderstanding your message. I don't get the stepping out part either. It is wrong for one spouse to "step out" on another spouse, but that has nothing to do with parenting. You can be a terrible spouse, but a great parent. A parent's responsibility to that child is just that, a responsibility to be there and take care of his/her kids regardless of what ending the marriage/family unit. I can only speak for myself, but anybody that knows me well knows that family is THE most important thing to me. I don't understand how any parent could intentionally limit their children's family. I don't know what to say because we may be on the same wavelength and I am misunderstanding you. I do appreciate your comments, and you taking the time to read anything on here!

No, I am not saying you are lying or judging. I am speaking of awareness. We the people, have the power to agree to change undesired that are going on in our lives. I speak from an observation point of view. If I say I love my kids and do that then my observation is to avoid lying and judging. For much peace follows. The STORY that is told when families are broke up has LYING and JUDGMENT told all the time!!!!! What is the STORY of Society telling you? I choose to hear, "What Would Love Do?" For me it does not matter who is right or wrong! " What Would Love Do?" That puts me into instant Clarity.
