Heartbroken (Updates: Post #91, 122, 136) - Page 6

Yay about the keyboard. Hope you can guilt dad into some contribution. It's the least he can do for his child, especially after the broken promise.

Are you near Boston?
No, Boston isn't close by.

Man, when you thought he couldn't be more of an ass, he just adds onto it, doesn't he? I'm so sorry that you have to deal with that crap.

I'm glad your mom helped you out though! :

Thanks! It'll take a long while for me to pay her back but at least ds will have it.

I just had an idea-are there any colleges with music departments near you? You could inquire about any students who might be taking classes in music therapies-maybe there is someone who might be interested in teaching ds for school credits?

Have you tried any local churches? Maybe some of their organists/pianists might be willing to teach ds-maybe you can do a barter type thing, like lessons for cleaning or something?

You know something, I didn't even think to ask the music director of my church. I'll send him an email and see if he'd be willing. Maybe he could do it on Sunday afternoons. We shall see. Thanks for the suggestion!

I'm so glad things are looking up for your DS. You and your mom are heroes in his life...
post #109 of 137
I missed this thread earlier, but I'm glad to see things are looking better even though his dad hurt him so badly. I hope things keep working out for the best for him.

: Grrrrrr....

That's all I have to say.
But then, you know me IRL. Ugh, I can't believe he'd do that to him.
I really hope something works out by his bday.

Yeah, his father is becoming more and more of a person that makes you say Grrrr. (that was my nice way of putting it.) I've got to have you come over some time when he's here so you can see what I have to deal with.
He just met my upstairs neighbor and after about 15 minutes, my neighbor looked at me with this look in his eyes like "holy cow, what is with this guy?!"
But that's a whole other story.

I guess he was on good behavior when he was at my house. But then again we were outside the whole time and I was ignoring him .

Yeah, try being in a closed room with him. He will be in your face and won't shut up. He'd probably try to parent your kids (even though he can't parent his own). If you leave the room, he'll still keep talking to you. I could go on but I'd violate the UA.

I'll have to pay her back (starting with a hefty first payment of $100) but at least ds will have it.

Now I have to wait til the 26th to contact the music school about financial aid and setting up lessons. I'm not sure how I'm going to be able to pay for these lessons but I'll make it work somehow!

I love my boy.
That is so awesome! You are one great mama!

Thanks!
I certainly try.
post #117 of 137
That's a terrible thing to do. for your little one.

I just read the rest of the thread- I'm glad you are figuring out how to do it without the UA violations help.

YAY! SO HAPPY FOR YOUR DS!
post #120 of 137
I just read through this entire thread and I am sooo happy your mom came through for you and your ds! Yay!!


On your ds's father...my cousin was like that with his kids, promising stuff and never coming through on it. Their mom never said anything negative, when they would come to her all excited saying "Daddy said he's going to buy me a (insert lavish gift here)!!" She would say "That sounds lovely" nearly biting her tongue off to stop herself from adding "you won't see that ever"

Now his kids are in their early teens, tired of Daddy's promises and don't speak to him. They don't go see him, they are old enough that they don't have to go for the visits if they don't want to, and he's stopped trying to see them claiming his ex "poisoned them against him."

If your ex is anything like that, odds are he'll never see the damage he caused, only that your son pulls away. People like that never "own" their actions.

I hope Karma delivered a big 'ol smack upside his head...and I'll be watching for news of your son as the next big thing!!
