My son is alomst 2, his father and I have always had our ups and downs throughout our relationship, but always worked things out in the end.
Well about 3 months ago, he moved back to his moms (which is 2 hours away) because he said that we needed time apart and had things to work on. I was a little surprised because I didnt even know he was unhappy in the relationship. Also kind of upset he just up and left instead of staying and talking/working on things in our own home.
(Sorry for grammar and spelling mistakes, typing on mobile.)
So none the less I was questioning things about our relationship. Is he worth it since he just up and left? Do i give up? Whats best for my son?.. For about a month things were okay. He came over a few times and things seemed okay. I just couldnt understand why he needed to live at his moms while working on things. Around Christmas time, he asked me if he could come over in the afternoon to spend time with us and of course I agreed. He stayed a whole 10 minutes! He said he has stuff to do. Really? On Christmas? Come to find out he had been seeing his YOUNGER sisters best friend. She is 18 and he is 23.
I was heartbroken! =( So for about a month.. I dealt with her calling me andtalking smack. If i didnt answer, she would text. Throughout all of this, my sons father, kept saying he loved me, but I needed to change... So I was dumb and thought if I showed him I could change, hed come back. Then one he calls me and asks to come see our son. I agreed. He told me he missed me, he was done with this girl, he was sorry.. but he didnt stay the night because he ended up gettin sick and wanted to go home.. He came by a few times after that. It felt normal again. Except he would never stay the night. I questioned in my head, but didnt want to cause fights.. So one Sunday, I let him take our son for a few days. When he brought him back, he stayed for dinner.. but then of course said he had to leave cause he had stuff to do in the morning. Later that night, I go on facebook and see that some girl tagged him in a post about hanging out for the weekend. I was furious that he was doing this again. This was about 2-3 weeks ago. This other girl has 2 kids of her own, 4 and 2 months!
Of course, I confronted him and he said that he wants to be a happy family with me, but he knows it wont work. How can you want something, but not try for it? I mean, by all means, we didnt have a perfect relationship, but we hadnt tried all our options. We hadnt tried counseling. I wanted to, but he says its to late. So now that he has been with this new girl, he hasnt tried to call to talk to our son, hasnt asked for our son, infact... I havent even spoken one word to him. How can you be in your childs life for 2 years and then just disappear?
Im SOOOOOO mad/heart broken/pissed/upset... But i cant help, but miss him. I know I need to move on. Its whats best for me and my son. But I just cant believe he would do this..
