Don't think it could get any worse than this!

Lord, after the last year of fighting childsupport for my review, I finally do get it and the childsupport is increased...........................................BUT ONLY TO HAVE

MY EX LOCKED UP A WEEK LATER!

Yep today, he got sent to PRISON for 2 years thanks to his ways and the women in his life!

My son just spent last weekend with him first time really since before thanksgiving. They went to the beach. It is killing me to know it's the memory my son will have to hold on to for the next two years.

I haven't told my son yet because he has EOG's the next 3 days, but I tell you it is killing me not telling him. I hate keeping this from him but I know it's for the best for the next few days.

I have been crying since I found out earlier and can't stop!

How am I going to tell my 11 year old son that his dad is going away for 2 years? I look at my son and just cry and he doesn't know why. I just know my son and he will not want to go see his dad just as he didn't when he first got locked up for a month.

Even my hubby feels sorry for my ex, but for some reason, I can't, I can't feel sorry for my ex. He did it to himself and now I am the one who has to deal with the aftermath of raising our son without him. I am the one that will have to wipe away his tears, I am the one that will have to deal with the out bursts and tantrums he will throw, and I am the one that sees how embarrassed my son will be to even tell his closest friends at school!

Omg, my poor baby!

It'll be hard, but he deserves to hear the truth, eventually.

I don't know about your school, but this year my son's elementary school sent all us parents a letter to say that due to the high proportion of students who have at least one parent in jail, they've actually started an after-school support group for any kids with an imprisoned parent, who want to join.

That would be great if they offered something like that here, but I don't know that they do! I am sure they don't actually, but they should most def.

I plan to tell him, in a few days, but it's going to be hard!
