Today is Friday and it is 10:07 am where I am at as I write this. Today is also my little girls graduation from daycare. I have flowers and a disney princess necklace to give her after she walks in her cap and gown. (when did that trend start btw). It is supposed to be a happy day.
I also have a developing problem with a baby momma drama. Seems dipshit let a violent ex (and baby daddy) pick baby up from day care yesterday and has not heard from him since. She doesn't even know his address. She is going apeshit wanting to have an "emergency" custody order also know as a TRO/Protective order. As a parent I sympathize with her concern, as a lawyer I know this really isn't an emergency. And it is of her making. How do you let your child go with a man you consider violent and whose address you do not know?
So now I am torn between helping this woman out assuming she can come up with the minimal amount of retainer I quoted and going to see my own little girl graduate.
The clearly obvious answer to to go to graduation right? But it is my chosen profession to help people in this kind of "crisis". I do it day in and day out. If I turn down too many potential clients they will stop calling.
