The POS just keeps digging his grave deeper and deeper with the kids. Unfortunately, I know how much he loves his stupid secret squirrel games, and how he thinks no one can see through them, not even his kids. Lord, I wish he would grow the fuck up already! I am so SICK of his juvenile games!

ETA: DD said POS texted back, "No, but would love to in the future." Her response to me, "OMG, mom! He doesn't even 'get' sarcasm when it is staring him in the face!" Yeah, I know...

Two steps forward and one step backwards, is still progress.
As for him not realizing the sarcasm of her comment....not very bright but you already knew that!!!! Sadly, now she sees it too.
We have some of this going on now and I'm really sorry you're going through it, Phoenix.
FWIW, I hear a lot about kids around yours age having this type of reaction.
My chagrin is that DD here still craves the love and attention from her father, even knowing what he's done, but she's too young to fully comprehend. And he plays on this with selling her unicorn fart land stories.
I'm sorry for each and every kid who has to deal with this stuff...life is difficult enough without more drama.
