My oldest son is 11.His father and I are divorced and for the past 4 years he has been going to stay with his dad for the summer who lives out of state.
I am so torn in half about it. I want my son to be happy.I want him to spend time with his dad and I feel so selfish for not wanting him to go each year.
I feel cheated...like I have to be the "school parent" and I have to set all the rules and make him go to bed on time and get up on time,make him do his homework...and his dad gets all the fun relaxed time.I mean..ya..we have fun on the weekends while he's with me...but its cold here Fall,Winter and Spring. I want to take him to Cedar Point,I want to take him on boat rides and fishing and camping and all the other fun summer stuff and I can't.
It is what it is...and I can't change it.I just have to deal with it and make the most of it, I know...and I do try.Just today...I miss him so much and I wish he were here and we could go spend the day at the beach and have a picnic and I can take great pictures of him running into the water and having fun.He's only been gone since last Friday.He'll be back sometime in August..back to school August 23rd.
I just miss him.
