My ex-husband and I have been divorced for 4 years, separated for 5. My family isn't big on sending Christmas cards out so I don't either. I only remember one time in our marriage that we even sent one.  But my ex has sent christams cards out ever year, a picture of him and my son smiling for the camera to my family and extended family that probably still don't realize we are divorced.  I finally told him he was an idiot and he needs to quit.  I am going to lose it if he sends them out again this year!

My parents divorced when I was 7. My mothers family treated my father like he didn't exist. My fathers family treated my mother like she didn't exist, with the exception of my grandpa and one aunt. By extension, I did not exist when I was with the other parent.

I'm not close to my family. Never will be. They are nice enough people, but I still resent the way they treated me during my childhood.

I'm completely with your ex. If either of my parents had reached out and made an effort with the ex-family, the family would have responded in kind and seen that it was ok to still speak.

Then I could have existed in their lives year round. Not just when I was with the right parent.

I hope he does it again.  I'm sure he will since you are having a tantrum.

So you don't want him taking pics with his own child and showing them off like a proud parent? Well aren't you just a bright bag of sunshine.
