So I've been a single mom since basically the moment I was pregnant...&I'm ok w/that...it's complicated between the baby daddy &I (but hey, isn't it always?!!!...lol!) Anyways, my son is 16 months old, and the absolutely LOVE of my life and then tonight as I reflected on how amazing this little boy is, I was struck w/this huge sense of overwhelming "What the heck is wrong w/his father? How can he NOT care like I do?" He's only seen his son a few times his whole freakin life, and no matter how nice I am (WAY way way nicer than he deserves) he just doesn't get it. &MY son is the one who is loosing out. Does the heart break stop? Does it get easier to deal w/an "All talk and no action" dad? It just breaks my heart, especially when my son randomly points out a motorcycle that looks like his dads and goes "Dadda?" I'm trying my absolute hardest to hold out hope that ONE day he'll understand that he was part of creating a whole human being, and amazing little, whole hearted loving, running, jumping, climbing (spitting imagine of his daddy...ugghhhh) fantastic little boy. Sometimes the frusteration gets to be overwhelming though.
