Yeah, you. I'm talking to you. The one who promised me that he'd never walk out on his son. The one who was always the "good dad" out of the three that my kids have.
It's now been two months since we've heard from you. Two full months.
You last saw him on May 1. It's now July 1. Still no visit, no phone call, not even a text.
If you thought that I was angry before, you don't want to see me now. You've seen bits and pieces of my temper before, but I've never really had to show you how angry I can get.
But apparently, you're just taking it for granted that I'm going to continue to be the easy-going mother-of-your-child that I've always been. I've always been understanding and willing to work with you when it came to you being able to spend time with him.
Guess what? I'm done.
Don't expect to be greeted nicely when and if you decide to show up again. He's been asking about you on an almost-daily basis now, and he's starting to get mad that you haven't been around. Even the other kids have been asking why you've disappeared, and all I can tell them is the same thing that I tell Alex: "I don't know."
Sarah even told me flat-out the other day that she thinks it's "pretty crappy" that you haven't been around. She's pretty smart for only being 11 years old.
What is so important in your life that you can blow off your son for 2 full months?
It's not like distance is a factor, unless you've moved again and haven't told me. I can only assume that you're still working here in town since the child support checks are still coming regularly. Does making that payment every 2 weeks make you feel better?
If you have no intentions of seeing him again, that's fine. I can deal with it. But I'm not going to contact you. You have my number - it hasn't changed in probably close to 10 years. You know where I live - you've been here numerous times. I'm not going to force you to see him again, so that you can disappear on him again. This is crap.
If an 11-year old can see it, why can't you?
