Hello my name is Kira i'm a single mom of a 9 month old. My son is just amazing he is beautiful has a good fun personality doesn't fuss to much (unless he's teething really badly) but in general an all-around wonderful baby. I just don't get what's wrong with my ex he doesn't seem to really come around anymore. He hardly calls or texts to ask how he is doing. When we do talk it's usually very brief. For awhile I saw some improvement he even started to watch him and I encouraged him to take him on certain days (not night) but he doesn't ask for him anymore and also the last couple times he did have him he came back kind of strange like out of it almost and my ex tells he how many hours he sleeps which isn't like my son at all. When he does take the time to finally come over to see him he usually texts the entire time or watches t.v for some reason he won't talk to him and he loves to make him sleep. I don't know how he does it though. My son typically has two naps a day a short nap and a little big one. But he pats his back hard that it makes him sleepy again and he'll sleep the whole visit usually. Then instead of staying awhile he just stays for an hour or less. His excuse is almost always someone's birthday or he needs to help a friend out. There's nothing wrong with going out but I don't think that you should just go out all the time and not spend time with your son. I used to argue about seeing him more but I'm starting to give up. Usually these actions would make me mad but it's making me more sad. I don't want him to have a flaky dad. Hayden acts like he's more of a stranger then anything I just don't know what to do anymore. Any suggestions?
