the smallest big town EVER

Part 1:
When my husband was 19/20, the girl that he was dating told him that she was pregnant, and it was his baby. So my husband stuck by her, went through everything with the mom, lamaz classes and labor itself, signed the birth certificate and everything. He had a baby girl. Then about 2 months later things weren't going well with him and the mother, lots of arguing, just being young parents didn't help anything. Well all of the doubts that he'd had for the last year caught up with him and he had a paternity test done. Turns out, baby girl was not his baby girl. So needless to say he and the mother broke up. For about 2yrs he would occasionally stop by to see the baby, he babysat her when the mother needed help, etc. This was 7yrs ago. Over time the mother has reached out to my husband for money, she thinks he owes her something. Up until 2 weeks ago, we even provided health insurance for the girl.

Part 2:
My ex-husband dated a gal after we got divorced. She has a son with one of our friends. This woman absolutely fell in love with my ex (after only dating for like 3 weeks). She declared her love for him to the world, explained how she was the man of her dreams and life would be perfect. Needless to say the relationship lasted maybe another 2 or 3 weeks.

Part 3:
My son plays soccer. He is about to start the spring season. I got an email from our coach this morning, in the email was a list of the names of the kids and their parents that we would be teammates with. Low and behold, My husbands ex's daughter is on our team. AND, my ex-husbands ex's son is on our team. Talk about an awkward experience for everyone. I can honestly say, I'm dreading this soccer season....
