Happy Mother’s Day?

I got to go to lunch with my kids and their mom. It wasn’t my idea, mind you, I was looking forward to a day by myself. Her car wouldn’t start and her husband is at work 60 miles away in Lincoln, so I got invited to lunch since I have a working car. She claimed that she was going to invite me anyway, but we know that’s bullshit since it was never mentioned until her car broke down.

We went to a Mongolian grill. It was OK. Nothing to write home about. Conversation was decent, mostly with the kids. Still, there was a level of comfort there that hasn’t been there before. Still, I don’t like her much, but at least I can stand her.

When I went to drop them home, she asked our daughter to come spend the rest of the day with her. She told my son she’d have him over some other time. wpid-steaming-2011-05-8-13-51.gif This has become so common that I don’t even know why I let it upset me. Oh, I don’t know , maybe because it’s fucking MOTHER’S DAY! wpid-pissedoff2-2011-05-8-13-51.gif

She blows him off all the time. Whenever I try to talk to her about it, she makes bullshit excuses. It’s enough to make me want to wpid-puke-2011-05-8-13-51.gif

Why do I suddenly have this urge to get high? wpid-weed-2011-05-8-13-51.gif I haven’t smoked that stuff in decades. Gagh!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you baby bearers out there. I’m sure you truly deserve the best today, unlike someone I can think of.

    What’s she got against your son? I’d be really quite upset if my mum decided she wanted to spend Mother’s day with my sister but not me. How old are your children?

    My daughter is 13 and my son is 16.

    He is special needs and tends to obsess about things, so conversations can be difficult. But it’s not like this is anything new. He’s almost 17 years old, after all. She just doesn’t want to deal with him is all. It is sad and it breaks my heart, but I knew this would happen years ago when we got divorced. That’s just how she is. She was a good mom to him when people were watching. In fact, she tried to make herself out to be super mom with him when he was younger. Now that she has no one to impress and she know that I damn well know what she’s up to, she doesn’t even bother with him.

    Oh man. This makes me so mad. Well, let’s look at the positive. You were able to be in the room with her for a decent meal. Good thing. She wanted to spend time with our daughter, another good thing. She was hurtful and avoided your son, terrible thing. I guess it’s better than all terrible.

    Jay, at least your kids have you. And one of these days, your daughter will see how she dismissed your son and that will upset her as well. Your ex doesn’t realize how perceptive kids can be, but this is gonna bite her in the ass. Maybe not today, but mark my words, it will.

      Yes, there are positives. My kids are lucky to have me because I work very hard to do the best by them.

      This has been going on for the past five years and I don’t expect things to change. I knew I’d have to deal with this way back then, and I was right.
