But the last time this happened my DS was in a super bad mood because his Dad had to go to work early and had to get DS up at 5:30am.
I told my ex that was the last time since school was going to start back. I reminded him when e picked DS up Friday that DS needed to be home ON TIME Sunday night because I wanted to get DS back into his normal bedtime routine for school.
Well today my ex had DS call me to see if he could spend the night tonight and come home tomorrow. I told DS to let me talk to his father.
I reminded him everything I had said before and what does he do? Tells DS that I said "No." Instead of beignet a responsible parent and saying "sorry bud I've got to work early tomorrow and you have to go home to get good rest," he blames me!
When he brings DS back tonight I am going to have a long chat with him.
How would he feel if I had DS call him every time he was late I child support? Or if I told DS " sorry bud Daddy didn't pay me this week so no Karate."
Which I would never do. I keep DS out of adult things and my DH makes enough money to pay for DS Karate lessons without child support.
But it pisses me off that he will emotionally manipulate our child like that and make me the bad guy!
