my 5 year old son's father recently came back into his life after years of separation due to the military. i thought this would be great for our son to have his dad around. he keeps him every other weekend. the issue is that every weekend he takes or son to do something special, monster truck rally, baseball game, foot ball game, hockey game, concerts, you name it they are doing it. every other weekend he comes home raving about him and his dad have such a good time. he's now asking me why we don't do anything fun like him and dad do but i can't afford to do things like that every weekend! we do small stuff and a lot of crafts and dub time at home. i feel like all of a sudden I'm having to compete for my sons affection and I'm losing badly! the last straw in my composure happened last weekend. his step dad and i got him a the new bike that he wanted because he had been improving so much in school. when he saw it his response was "daddy got me a bike too its way cooler and has pegs on it for tricks". i lost it and cried for hours. i just being jealous that my son has someone else in his life? i mean i am the one who had been there every day of his life up until this point.. how do i deal with this?
