He’s the Man of Your Dreams…with a Nightmare of an Ex
So, you’ve finally met your Prince Charming. He’s handsome, caring, and thoughtful—but he comes with one scary string attached: His Ex, the mother of his children. And she isn’t happy to meet you.
Welcome to the not-so-wonderful world of “Baby’s Mama,” a place where an ex-wife or girlfriend isn’t quite ready to let go of her former man—and has no qualms about using their children to wreak havoc on your life. Jealous and insecure, Baby’s Mama (a.k.a.: “BM”) knows just how to push your buttons and likes nothing more than to see you lose your cool. Her goal: to see your relationship with the father of her kids go down in flames—or to at least make it as miserable as possible.
Using her firsthand experience, Ayesha J. Gallion lays it on the line with this no-holds-barred survival guide for women in this too-common predicament. Combining wicked humor with keen insight, she’ll teach you the skills you need to:
- Keep the children out of the drama
- Forge a real bond with your new man’s kids—even if their mom doesn’t like you
- Preserve your dignity by resisting the urge to engage in battle
- Cope with social events, child support, and disrespectful children
- Recognize when it’s time to get a restraining order
- Dredge up some compassion for even the most desperate BM
- And much more
With chapters covering everything from the rude ex to the money-hungry ex to the psycho ex, this is the first and only book that can show you how to attain a peaceful, loving, and blessedly drama-free life—while keeping your self-respect and your relationship intact.
