I lied, to my Husband. We had an agreement that if our son got any D's or F's on any assignments, he wouldn't be able to drive, or have his phone for however many D's or F's entered for the week.
The Homecoming dance was last night, and I read his grades to my Husband over the phone, (he was out of town). I left out the F because I knew what he was going to say.. That our son couldn't take his date out to dinner before the dance... I wanted him to be able to go, and I assumed that's what his Dad would say.
Big mistake on my part because my Husband read an email I sent to his Teacher about the F. Our son told me that he turned the assignment in, and I told him I would email the teacher to ask, and if he's lying, he's grounded from driving, and his phone the rest of this coming week.
I sent that email on Friday evening, and I knew I wouldn't hear back until Monday, so I let him go, and just didn't say anything to my Husband.. Ugh, after reading this I just realized what an idiot I was.....
Anyway, I apologized to my Husband, and told our son it won't happen again. I told our son we made Dad feel horrible, like we were hiding things from him, and that from now on we have to be upfront no matter what the circumstances, or consequences are.
My Husband isn't our sons biological father, he adopted him when we married 5 yrs ago, when our son was 11 yrs old. He's been a wonderful Father to our son, and he's his Dad in every way that matters. He told me today this is the first time he's felt like he's on the outside.
I told him I'm sorry, but I don't know what else to say.
Thanks for reading.
