I'm very stressed out and hoping somebody can shed some light on this matter.
Here's the situation...my 15 month old baby's father only seen him 4 times in two month's time, and that's only because I made him. My baby had his baptism and birthday on the same day and his father didn't show up at all when he said he's going to be there. Not even a word from him until I called him later that night because I was so mad. I have been so nice to him even when he wasn't there for the first 10 months of my baby's life. But after what he did, I never wanted to see him again. He just doesn't care about his son. He never made an attempt to see him at all. I don't want him to be around only when he feels like it.
I know I can raise my baby all by myself. I'm just worried when the time comes that he'll find out his father doesn't care about him at all. I have no problem with his father not being around, but his father's mother and sister wants to be around. I think that will just remind him that his father doesn't care about him every time he sees them. They are nice people but I want to do what is best for my son.
So, what should I tell my son about his father? What I want to tell him is his father is dead or lost in la la land or something like that. I know I can't protect him from everything, but I'm sure as hell going to try...
