Why is that I feel so slighted because my ex-husband and his wife are taking our 6 year old son and his 4 year old brother, to his first open house / meet the teacher night for 1st grade.
I have physical custody and both my ex and I have joint legal custody.
My ex husband remarried a year ago and within months his wife was volunteering for parent classroom volunteer, attending parent teacher meetings and attending PTO meetings, etc.
These are things I do with my son. My ex-husband and his wife and her 3 kids live in another town.
My ex husband called and asked if I would mind HIM taking our son to the OH knowing that I will be attending as well. I assumed it would be a joint effort, two separate cars, and his wife would stay home with my 4 year old. (it's his visitation night).
My son stated that he wanted to go to the OH with his dad BUT he wanted me there too, with him.
The day of the OH he tells me the 4 of them are going to the open house and ignores my request for a time of arrival. I get a why?, until the 3rd time I ask and then finally get an estimate.
I'm really upset. Am I just having "mother bear complex"?
