So this AM DS had his physical. Was for his Philmont trek and for school. We were expecting his weight to be an issue for the Philmont requirements (he doesn't weigh enough) but there were a few other minor issues. After we got done with pleasantries they asked me to leave for the actual physical part. No big, he's 15 now. But I could hear the conversation while I stood in the hall. I heard him say things that just appalled me. I realized how little respect he has for his father. I knew it was there but I had no idea it was that severe. DH works the over-night shift so the kids don't really realize that he works. He leaves after they go to bed and gets home before they are up. So naturally, dad doesn't work. No, we aren't making as much money as we'd like to, but we're able to take care of the basics and a random "treat." But for him to harbor such disrespect, I'm just not okay with that.
