My ex was garnished Wednesday for $1100 and I spent about $300 on Lego city stuff, lol. He promised my son a bunch of Legos in July for his birthday and it never came. My DS was devastated and heartbroken for almost two months straight after checking the mail after school. He cried when I would tell him there was no parcel pickup notice.

It's my first CS payment I've seen since June. I bought DS a bunch of onesies (size 7) from Osh Kosh/ Carter's too. I think I bought all the size 7s lol! He has the spaceship one and practically lives in it!

I'm just so grateful I have this money since he lied to my son and it actually deeply affected him this time. I fucking loathe him for doing that to DS. So I made sure I made up for that. If I can, I'm going to buy some of the Lego ninjago stuff as well. He has almost all the Lego city kits!

I'm glad you got the support check and are able to make up for your ex's deficiencies in caring for your son.  :)

Me too. I don't even feel bad. All I could think of "I PROMISE, buddy. This year is gonna be different." Yeah, this year was different. He actually verbally promised my son and he's now old enough to know what a promise is. It was sickening to see my son cry after checking the mail.

Thank you. :') I was able to even buy him his prescription for Singulair since AANAC doesn't cover it anymore. It's so fucking stupid. They will cover pills so my people back home can abuse them and take them with booze but they won't fucking cover a child's asthma meds. >:( I'm gonna claim that prescription on the recalculation for next year. The least my ex can do is pay for my son's medical expenses. He promised he would put my DS on his dental premium but that never went through because he quit before I was able to even question him. I'm going to ask him if he can put him on his premium with his new shit-shovelling job. Tee hee.

Me too. If this hadn't have happened, he would have maybe gotten two or three sets, but me and my dad "competed" in buying the most sets. He isn't getting any doubles, so that's pretty good! He has pretty much every Lego City set except for the harbor, the gold mine and city garage. He has everything else.
