my ex's family always has a christmas party for the family. we were invited, but it was before we broke up. ex isnt DS's biological dad. i'm not going to go- among our many issues, one of mine is that i dont feel welcomed there. they always make me feel welcomed, but its just that feeling you cant shake, ya know. (pretty sure its just me though- i dont feel accepted by my own biological family)
DS wants to go. he wanted to go to the thanksgiving party and ex took him, even though that was the beginning of our break up.
lately, DS has been asking to go to the party with ex... i told him we'll talk about it later. idk if i should ask ex if he'd take him... or if i should tell DS to ask him... or if i should just tell DS that he isnt going- end of discussion.
ex's mom kinda knows whats going on, although she's only said 'i like her (meaning me) and i accepted DS'... not sure if 'I' meant ex or his mom... she's also very disappointed that it turned out this way.
DS is 7 years old and understands that we arent together anymore, but we both love him dearly.
