Well, the weekend went well, I'd say. I'll write about class later.
Fenris' daughter stayed with us this weekend - its the first we've had her that long. I'm surprised I didn't feel quite as awkward as I normally do around children. Before I left for class, I fed her as Fenris was napping. I didn't get to spend much time with her overall on Saturday, but it sorta felt like a 'mom' thing to make sure she was fed, etc.
Sunday, we took her over to a friends house and let her play with their kids while we played games. Before that, we went to lunch at Izzy's. I did a little 'mom' thing there too, and I hope Fenris didn't mind. He said that he didn't, but I know some parents are a bit picky. She'd cut someone off in the buffet line, and I told her to say 'excuse me'. Of course, she didn't do it until dad told her, and even then she mumbled it. I was kinda proud of me though :) I enjoyed the weekend with her, and look forward to more visits.
It was nice to see William and Jenn as well. I haven't seen them in a really long time. Jenn mentioned that I looked happy with Fenris. Its nice to hear that. On the way home, I was talking to Fenris and pointing out some of the differences between the last relationship and this. It cemented even more, that while I'm a little sad and hurt that the door on that relationship has closed, I'm in a better place for myself. I think this, in and of itself, will help me move on fully. I bet Fenris will like that :)
Sunday night ended fairly well. All around, it was a nice weekend.

She's a neat kid. mholmesiv and I used to watch her on Sundays way back when. I don't have or want kids, but I actually enjoyed spending time with her. Knowing her Dad would have her back soon probably helped! Glad to hear you like hanging out with her. I haven't seen her since she was 4. I can only imagine that she has continued to be her precocious self. :)

She can be a handful, but it sounds like you are adapting quite nicely. And don't let Fenris bully you.. he wants what is best for her, so if she needs correcting, do it and be firm. Pooh is VERY independant and will respect you more if you insist that she do as she is told rather than waiting for her father to back you up.... I speak from experience. That being said, she is a good kid with a big heart. The thing with her is that she HAS to know that you actually care about her before she will really listen to you. I helped raise her for 5 years and it was difficult for me at first too.. I never expected to have kids. But I fell in love with that one and would still do anything in my power for her. I miss her alot. But you need to let her know that you care, because she has been through a lot, with her parents not being together and then her father and I splitting up. I know she wonders why I haven't been around and I want to see her more, but I don't know how to deal with her mother... When she was still living at Grandma's, I went to see her every so often.. but her mother bothers me alot. So I guess I need to stop bareing my soul here and just say that Pan needs someone to let her know that she is loved and she will listen and be a very well behaved child. Be there for her, please. She needs a good female role model.

Re: Pooh Bear
I'm doing my best :) I'm a bit awkward around kids, because well, even as a child, I was never around them as much as I was adults. But, I think, with a little adjusting on all fronts, we should be good. She *is* a good kid, and I know that this is a bit confusing for her too...does she listen to me? Or am I just someone who's around for a bit, then gone? I've been in her place, and I know how it feels.
She seemed to like my friends kids a lot, so that may be a 'middle ground' for us. Someplace we can go to get to know each other and others as well. Who knows. At any rate, I think we're off to a decent start :)
PS - ya know...I'm sure we can make arrangements for you to visit, I'd bet she'd love to see you as much as you wanna see her :)
