User Topic: I Birthed a Wing Man?

What?  Posted: 9:36 AM, August 1st (Thursday)

Just to start, I'm not actually upset about this, but still...

My ex found some old photos including one of him holding our son just a couple hours post-birth. Really a wonderful pic of both of them!

He posted it on fb and proceeded to get a slew of comments from current gfs about how sexy is a good-looking man with a cute baby!

Then our son -- the one from the pic who's now almost 26 -- commented that he probably wouldn't make as good a Wingman for ex now as he did then.

I so desperately wanted to jump into the thread, point out who actually did the work of producing that baby and mention that I did not give birth to him just so he could be my husband's Wingman to pick up other women!

I'm mean... really!?

Celebrate that your son has integrity. And then celebrate that your life has one less person without integrity in it.

Ok ok it's funny but..... you've been around long enough to know... we're going to say this...

Stop checking x's FB. It's no good for you.

Ok - maybe I'm just reading it wrong, but I took what your DS said to be a positive thing.

I read it as DS kind of disapproving of being used that way.

I know you said you aren't upset, but.... I'm just saying, I think your DS's comment was good... sarcasm often doesn't come across as well when it's written, but I would have taken that as a sarcastic comment from your DS. Read it that way and see how it sounds....
