I am so angry today. I know I have things pretty good, ex pays cs and we have a pretty good relationship, no fighting.
But man I got angry at him. He just got back in town (he works out of province three weeks out of the month). He has the opportunity to see DS on Saturday. So I call him and tell him that DS wants to see his instructor take his black belt test and I will call him when we are free. He says fine.
So 3pm the test is over I meet Ex with DS, tell him DS is quite hungry as we woke up late, didn't have lunch..etc. I tell him I have a few errands to run but just call when you need me to be home.
Well not even 2 1/2 hours I get a call making sure I am home as he is bringing DS home!!
He hasn't seen him in three weeks and all he can spare is 2 1/2 hours??!! What makes it worse is that he took him to his parents house. I asked DS if dad did anything with him and he replyed "not really"
He certainly had enough time to go out and buy his new jeep. Must be nice to have money to get a new car.
He shows up to DS' play off game (baseball) and act like the good father, look how he is there supporting his son
He spent the whole time disparaging the coach about playing favorites and why DS is not playing short stop, he is outfield..blah blah. I had to remind him it is playoffs and they need to put the kids where they will be strongest and DS is a fast runner, they need him out in the field. He never thought of that of course. I just wanted to strangle him, I am the team manager so I have lots of discussions with the coach about the kids and how he is going to run the playoffs. There are lots of factors to take into consideration.
He has made no offers to see DS and only makes mention of the championship game on friday.
Guess what buddy, DS is availalbe all week after paddling, perhaps you could spend some quality time with him! You are so lucky that DS loves you so much and thinks you are a good dad, one day he is going to look back and realize that you were never really there.....oh and spending all that quality time on the ballfield watching DS play should not include continual texting..look up!!!!
Okay vent done....I need a martini
