Today is my sons 16 birthday. I allowed him to do as he wanted this weekend - had a friend spend friday - saturday with us. Went out to birthday lunch and dinner, got a few things he has wanted what ever.....
Today he hung out with his dad for about 4 hours. They went shopping.
Up until my son was 10 year old I was his sole provider, his only parent. His dad was a willy nilly kind of dad. He would see our son once or twice a month. I would BEG him for any kind of child support. Put it like this, in 16 years our son has spent the night at his dads house 3 times. Our son has seen his fathers mother about 10 times.... no one in his dads family does anymore than post on his (our sons) facebook page.
His dad and I are on extremely good terms never had a falling out after we broke up. Issues were always delt with BUT I'm pissed right now..... this is what he posted on his FB page to honor our son

UMMMMMMMMMMMMM its a damn lie - my son started walking with me, memory serves me right he didnt see our son that MONTH All the effort me and HIM put into raising him.......... LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIESSS I did it... alllllllllllll of it. HE never changed a diaper on our son, never gave him a bath, never fed him baby food. There are TONS of things he has NEVER dont for or with our son. Only in the last 6 years or so he has slowly be coming around and doing much better.... but WOW who is he trying to impress..... ughh
This is what I posted this morning about our son:
Today is XXXX 16th Birthday! I guess it's time for me to stop looking at him like my little boy, huh.. It seems like JUST yesterday he was running around like a bat out of hell, climbing stuff he wasn't supposed to. Getting himself in the most ridiculous of situations, all because he had this need for a THRILL. He's now a high school student, talking about getting his drivers lice
