Stepkids Didn't Acknowledge Father's Day

>> Monday, June 21, 2010

The stepkids didn't contact their dad for Father's Day.  They both have phones, they both have texting, they both have facebook, they both have computer access, they both are old enough at 17-1/2 and almost 15 to know better, and they both have no friggen excuse. 

Last year we waited several days to see if perhaps they'd dropped a note in the mail instead and it took a few days to get here - nope.  Wonder if we'll wait a few days for the mail wondering again or if we'll just acknowledge that both kids blew their dad off this year.

He doesn't deserve this.  He loves them.  He provides for them always.  He fought for years for a relationship with them against the ex's alienation attempts.  He is a great dad to our own four children.  It's not like he's a deadbeat who deserves a shot in the heart like this.

My hubby's son (he was 20 at the time) did the same thing last year! I knew he had issues, but this really cemented it for me. It's a great example to share with others who think I'm just the unreasonable stepmom.
