My ex has a new girlfriend, which is fine...We have been divorced since my son, 10 was 1, so 9 years. We divorced because he is a heavy drinker and was abusive to me. He has been a good "weekend" dad, as far as always picking up my son and not canceling and coming to many of his sports events. Sometimes he shows up reeking of alcohol, but he shows up...driving and all! Well, now he has a new girlfriend that keeps texting my 10 year old and calling him baby, sweetie, darling, honey, ALL THE TIME. This woman is 43, not 20 and has known my son for a month. She has also started sending him messages (several) that say, "come stay with me this weekend...pleeeze....." and then follow up by saying "beg!". She wants my son to come and be with her on my weekends.......
In addition, I have heard through the grapevine (my ex's previous girlfriend) that his plan is to start working on my son to convince him to move in with him...Now, I know that no judge would probably give custody to a drunk with 5 DUI's and who actually doesn't even have a license now since its suspended....Regardless, I am scared that they will start putting my son in the middle and trying to make me and my family where Gage lives look bad. I am a good mom! I work full time but volunteer at the school, have been to every one of my kids practices and sporting events, study with them every night, take them on vacation, and do family outings....Maybe I am over reacting but I am scared of what my innocent son might have to endure....any help with how I should proceed would be so much appreciated.
