I HATE THE VIEW FROM TAKING THE HIGH ROAD.
This week was an interesting week from the point of view as a dad.
Sunday was where my thought of maybe going to jail was a thought. My former wife and her husband picked up Connor. While I was bringing Connor's hockey bag to their car is where the first story goes.
There have been times when my former wife's husband has made snide remarks to me in the past and I do "take the high road."
This time I really wanted to say something but Connor was right there and he heard the comment.
OK "bonus" parenting 101: if you have a dumb comment to make, DO NOT SAY IT IN FRONT OF THE KIDS!!!
The Brady's VS the Cleavers article for The Good Men Project:
Story number two: Well not sure how to handle this one.
My older bonus daughter Betsy's boyfriend (say that 10 times fast) is a great young man.
When they set the bar for boyfriend's Tristian has set that bar very high. He is very polite and attends Becca's (other bonus daughter) varsity basketball games.
The issue that I am having is that when we attend the games he sits with Betsy's dad and his wife.
I am feeling that maybe I am a bit jealous?
There is playbook to handle this situation other then what maybe I have learned from life and that is to take the high road. AGAIN!
