so this weekend is dh's weekend to get ss. he hasn't been able to since right after christmas because mom goes against court order and sends him to her mom's so dh can't get him. he's been trying to call ss for the last week and a half, but can't get him in the phone. so he called ss's mom tonight (ss has his own phone) and demanded to speak with his son, so she gave him their house number because she was at work. so dh called. he had just gotten home from work and was getting settled in the bedroom and i was sitting on the bed and he had his phone on speaker phone, while I stayed quiet out of respect.
so dh says "we all miss you ___" ss: "I miss you guys too, so much". dh: "this is my weekend to come get you, are you going to come over?" (he asks this because mom says it's up to ss.... if he wants too.... even though it's really never up to him) ss: "I want to but mom won't let me. she says i'm not allowed" dh: "Well I will take care of that, ok buddy? I love you" ss "Ok daddy. I love you too. tell my brothers and sister I said hey".
We have suspected this all along, but ss has never come out and said it until now. I thought dh was going to turn into the incredible hulk! I wanted to cry because I felt so bad for ss.
What the hell kind of mom does that kind of crap and keeps the child away from dad out of spite!?!?! GRRRR.... seriously, I would love to give her a high five.... to her face.... with a chair!
