My 3 almost 4 year old son keeps questioning why me and his dad are not together. This topic has been brought up over the past month excessively. I have been separated from his dad for a little over 2 years and his dad is not very consistent in his life. His dad also has a fiancee. My son has asked me why his dad is not my boyfriend, has told me he wants his dad to be my boyfriend. Asked why he does not live with us, and has asked if we could go places together and take pictures together just the 3 of us. How do I go about explaining this without hurting my son that his dad honestly doesn't want to be involved. With either of us.
I have tried talking to his dad about this but he ignores all of this. I try for my son but his father is very difficult to deal with. I just want my son to be happy. Is this just a phase, is he maybe asking more questions because his friends all have fathers around? Any advice will be helpful. Thanks!,
