Sophia meets Daniel in the foyer of Farrah’s building. They take the puppy along for the ride. Daniel goes on and on about how great he is with kids and loves them so much. Well, you don’t know enough to jump into the backseat and fix that poor child’s carseat straps!!
Amber and her cousin take their kids out the park for a healthy lunch of Micky-D’s happy meals. The cousin asks if Amber thinks Gary’s keeping Leah from her to torture her. Is that really a question? We find out that Amber hasn’t been to her local rehab yet. Oh, that’s good. Way to make those two months away from your baby worthwhile. Amber hopes that she and Gary can learn to get along so they can focus on being good parents. How many times have we heard that line from both her and Gary? A person like Gary will never be able to be in a relationship with a person who fights back. He needs to find someone easily dominated and manipulated. Amber will never be able to be in a healthy relationship until she learns how to pick a partner who wants to give her the support she needs to get past her mountain of issues. I guess that’s going to be a while, though, seeing as how she’s got 5 years in the Big House.
Because I wanna look just like daddy when I grow up!
It’s the end of the date and Sophia’s asking about Grandma. Farrah asks Daniel if he’ll Skype with Debra with them. Someone needs to put the brakes on this FAST! Introducing your daughter, your mom, planning trips half-way across the country. This all sounds appropriately third date-y, right?
So, what does Farrah do now? She asks her supposedly abusive mom to come down and take care of Sophia while she goes on an ill-advised trip to Austin with Daniel. The logic of these moms never ceases to amaze me.
We’re going to get family portraits taken tomorrow!
Over at Ryan’s, the Clan of Stupid talk about starting up a custody battle, which is always super-healthy for little kids. Now Maci and Ryan are looking at a house that’s going for $75K. Way smarter plan. It’s got a lot of land and needs some updates, but not too many. I’m house hunting myself, so I’m all about this right now. Now that they’ve seen two houses on opposite ends of the spectrum, Kyle and Maci agree this is THE house for them and submit an offer. I wouldn’t call this “house hunting”. I would call that a “rash decision”.
Ty shares his conversation with April with Cate. It’s really sad. I’m so happy for Ty to turn out like he has after all of this BS he’s been through. I think that just proves what a great mom he has. I hope they can work out together. I’m afraid it might turn into a bitter relationship since neither has experienced other people or time away from one another.
