....he did it again.
This year is the first year without my own dad. He passed away week before my birthday in November last year from cancer. So of course this weekend was hard enough. The day before Father's Day, I decided to take my son to Indiana for a day just to get out of town for the day. While I was driving, I received a text message from my ex. Now, normally when I get text messages from him, I just brush it off, because I honestly don't care. But because of what weekend it was and with my emotions already on high, he got to me. He asked and I quote "So who is "our son's name" dad for sure?" And then he proceeded to say something about our dad's not being here this year (his dad passed away two weeks after mine did). But it wasn't as if I needed him to remind me of something I was already aware of. The weekend was going to be hard enough without his text messages (oh there were more too). He knows he is our son's father. However since I haven't returned any of his messages, he will say anything to get me to respond to him, and I mean anything. The sad thing is, knowing him, he'd take the paternity test just to keep me around. It wouldn't be for our child, but for his own selfish desires to be able to see me. I would write more, but it's after 1 am and I've been up studying all night. So my brain is FRIED!!! Anyway, thanks for letting me vent. I actually feel better.
