SPLIT CUSTODY

Thank you to Jessica Haines for use of this image for the challenge.

Again, I am left waiting.  It’s the third time someone forgot to pick me up at school this month.  Mom will blame Dad and Dad will blame Mom.  I blame them both.  I was not given a say.  Living half my life with one and half with another.  Which also means all of my life without someone.

They say it will get better.  They say they just have to work out a better schedule.  Ever since the separation I am told just give it time and the kinks will get worked out.  But I know better.  This is the new norm.  I am done waiting.  I’ll just walk.
