I never thought I would say this, but I have disengaged with my son. When I talked to him yesterday on the phone he was rude with me after my husband said he perked up when asked if he wanted to talk to me. I even kept it light and easy talking to him. I told him his older brother bought a new car and said it's purple but I think it's pink (trying to get him to laugh) and asked him how his day was. He was rude the entire time.
Today we had our family meeting and I was just pissed off with it. The case worker had the same conversation with him I have had hundreds of times. And she got the same answers I got hundreds of times: I don't know, maybe, I guess, etc. Then not even telling his father happy father's day after being reminded on Friday and Saturday and there are signs everywhere there about it. No I love you to him, nothing. He was just the same nasty little boy he's been all year.
I have decided to walk away from it, let his dad handle it all. I can't deal with him right now and need to keep away from it. And you know what? I had a good day after I decided that! Am I a bad mom? Who knows, and at this point, I really don't care. It's about time I spend some time with my husband and daughters without having to sit here and constantly worry about him and remain stressed out the whole time.
