No Room at the Inn: Mom's Dilemma 🏠

After a tough divorce and custody battle, our protagonist tries her best to make her home welcoming for her son, but he ends up choosing to live primarily with his dad. Years later, she's remarried, pregnant, and living in a condo with no room for her son. Now, the 16-year-old wants to move back in, but there's no space. Mom offers the living room couch as a temporary solution, but the son is not happy with that. They discuss moving to a bigger place in six months, but the son opts to live with his grandparents instead. Accusations fly, and the ex-husband even calls to tell mom to make room for their son. But mom stands her ground, saying it's not her fault. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...💭
