Oooohhhh...I've got one...last Friday, my ex...KNOWING it was my weekend, KNOWING my ds had a friend coming to stay the weekend from out of town, and I am sure KNOWING that I would be terrified....showed up at the school and picked up ds...I showed up and couldn't find ds on the playground, the office, the afterschool programs...and his teacher hadn't seen who picked him up...after about 15 minutes (seemed like 15 years) I am totally freaking out, and another mom says, are you Ed's mom? I am like, yep, she says (using a very poor choice of words
: )Oh, his dad came and snatched him up a little while ago...I, of course, crumbled (it is one of my greatest fears that his dad will take him away forever
: )the school office lady called him...and reminded him that it wasn't he weekend...he was like, Oh, you're right, I'll bring him back....I had to leave and get a water (bcuz if I saw ex I was afraid I would freak out)....ex calls me and says, it is MY weekend, *I* can be flexible with *you*, I am consistant about parenting plan...blah blah blah....I just had to keep my mouth shut for fear of losing it in front of ds....
This flexible guy also:
: calls my minimal child support *monthly extorsion check*, won't let ds go to birthday parties on *his* weekends bcuz "birthdays aren't important", just two weeks ago sent me an email and called me a c-word and asked how I can live with so much hate (????
: wth???), and has repeately told me "what happens on *your* days is not *my* problem, allows ds to watch cartoons from 'adult swim'~I could be here all night writing this...sigh...
On a positive note, I am blessed with two wonderful children and a guy who is a really awesome dad to both (even tho ds isn't his biokid)...I just had to add something positive after all that horrid sad stuff!
