Good Morning: DS is communicating with his dad. I told him in texts that we are coming up on Saturday. He did not answer me but his dad. I feel better. I want to bring him something for the holidays for his shop, but DS is a funny kid. He gets his back up for the littlest thing. sometimes I think he is embarrassed that we are his parents. My daughter is not that way at all. He rarely introduces us to any of his friends. He has such a private life and rarely lets his parents in. DH is perfectly fine with this b/c he does not like to parent if there is alot of mess. during all the years during his teenage years when DS was a problem; DH chose to take a job where he would travel each week. So when DS acts up like he has, DH is more than willing to just ignore DS. He says at his age it is time to grow up and he has no patience. That is why it is really funny that DS goes to DH for support instead of me. I also know kids give the person that loves them the most a harder time. DS knows I love him unconditionally; his father has conditions. Thank you once again. Going to the gym now. emoticon

    be happy that you are hearing from him through your DH, and just because he does not acknowledge you now, he will

    He will come around when the time is right for him. Be glad he is communicating at least with his dad.

    Hang in there... glad to know communication is happening. My son started talking more with his dad after he signed on and started wearing a uniform... he "gets" his dad more, now. (His dad is a purple heart out of Vietnam era).

    DS must need approval from his father, esp since he was somewhat absent father. DS might be recognizing the past, and wanting to communicate more with him. Then again, after your Tough Love, maybe it's a good thing. My Mama used to call it "mending fences".

    You blog often, that's good. I alweays look for your blogs. I'm always so amazed that you end it with "Going to the gym now". Good for you, such motivation yu have. Exercise can be so hard but it does make us feel so much better afterwards.

    Happy to hear that he finally answered the messages, regardless of who he replied too.
    Being a single parent, I am and was the BIG HARD Btch. But, I am always being told how well behaved and polite my kids were when they were little. Who my kids?? Sure wished they had acted like that at home.

    Anyways have a great day. emoticon emoticon

    AMEN to that one! Love DH dearly, and I know for certain he loves our kids to the very depths, but never was, and still isn't much of a "hands on" parent. That was left to me. OH well.

    I am so very happy that your DS is communicating w/your DH. I hope it's a good trip on Saturday.
