    Default Feel so sad for DH :(

    It was DSS birthday this past week and all day he sat around looking at his phone trying to gather enough courage to make a call but after the last 4 years of trying to call and getting put straight to voice mail and last year calling 17 times he couldn't do it. He said if he didn't call at least he wouldn't know for sure he would get "ignore" when really all he wanted to say was happy birthday to his monster (thats DSS nickname with dad).

    I tried to comfort him but I mean really what can I really do but to hold his hand when he cried on my shoulder.

    Poor DH

    We've been through this before too. I am so sorry he wasn't able to see or talk to him. This time in court we made sure that it was in the court order that whoever doesn't have the boys on their birthday, gets 2 full hours with them sometime during the day.

    aw. Sorry but I think he should have tried anyways. Hopefully next time he sees him you's can celebrate than.

    We will be!!! We get him tomorrow and will be taking off to GWL for the weekend. All DSS knows is he got to choose one friend to go on a trip with him for his birthday...that's all though he's going to be super excited when we pull up to the GWL

    We're fighting for this currently but with the way the lawyers are slow to respond and her lawyer pretty much saying f you to anything it's going to be a long process.

    I hear ya. DH tries and calls his girls too and apparently they are told (according to what they said to us) that they just get a lot of “telemarketing calls“......or when their aunt tried to call them on their birthday they “weren't home“ and mom didn't know where they were or when they'd be back?! It sucks but soon they'll grow up and see. Just make sure they know you have been trying to call, it's all you can do until the “games“ stop.

    Have fun this weekend!

    Sad for your DH, but the kid know he tried and that's what matters.

    When DSS is older he can answer the phone himself.

    What about, next year having the kid make a little vid of himself on his BDay so Dad can see? Maybe not the party in case the Mom gets mad, but some other time during the day. Or have Dad make a vid the kid can watch on his BDay.

    I think this will be easier when the kid gets older.

    So sad. I hate that these things happen between broken families. It shouldn't. Broken families should mean more love for the young one.

    Reading stuff like this makes me so greatful for what we have with DSS.
    I am so sorry your DH has to go through things like this

    I know we are so lucky because we get to see DSS almost everyday & DH's ex & I get along really well....I wish everyone had that for their children sake.

    That is so frustrating. I hope he has a great time this weekend and don't worry, so long as he tries his son will realize in the future that he has always tried to be there for him. Kids are smarter than you think!
