Well I have to admit, cried when my son went back to his mom ( my ex ) today. We had a week and some together fishing northern Michigan and when we got back took the big boat out. I think it hits me way harder than him cuz he loves his mom too. It just really sucks. :(

It looks like you are truly blessed with a great son. Just enjoy the times you have together and be glad that he does love his mom and loves you too.

Too many times a deep wedge is driven between families that have separated, and the kids pay the price.

I'm glad you had great time. I know your pain. I was him growing up and he feels the pain also. Only my parents fought over me big time, so I was really tore up trying to please both. I did not one parent feeling like I loved the other more. Best thing for him, is you not ever talking bad about your ex when he is around. Keep the peace for him, cause he can tell when there is tension. It would soooo great for him, if you two were good friends now. (maybe you are hopefully)

I know the feeling, my little girl goes back to her mom today :(
I was just getting over it, till I had this vaca with him. It was our first one since the divorce. I rented a cabin and it had two rooms, guess where he slept. Yea with me. He snored, beat me up with his head, punched me in the face twice. Got very little sleep and you know what, I didn't care. Love em.:D

Dude, listen to 4trax, and dont "try" to not talk shit about the ex (regardless of what kind of bitch she may be) around the kid, never, nada, dont do it, this is when you need to be and adult, like 4trax said, the kid will not forget, and they know and hear, and feel everything, and it goes very deep!!

I just took my 2 boys, 10 & 13, back to their mom after 16 days together. This is the longest I've had with them in the last year. We spent 2 weeks at a beach house. From the typical fights, the dinners, the swimming, watching them play in the sand, to the 2am wake up because the youngest had nightmares and restlessly sleeps beside you. Those are what make the best memories. I love them with all my heart, and try to make it the best quality time for them. We went deep sea fishing, and the aquarium. It breaks my heart letting them go back to the crap they have to, but I do the best I can for them, and I count the days until I can see them again. :(

Dude, the hard part was for him(4trax). That had to suck. Also I dont talk about his mom in front of him. He may have walked into a room when I've been on the phone with her and had a heated discussion going. Thats it. He heard enough of our shit for 10 years while we were married.

Thanks. I'm the product of what I thought was a bad divorce, but my ex is making that one look like a cake walk, so I do everything I can, positively.

Nice looking boy, enjoy him each time you have him and do not sweat the small stuff.
I split up with my ex when my daughter was 6.
It was a ****ing nightmare, the judge in charge of our case was a dike,yea a dike.
She hated men, she threated to throw me in jail more then once.

But I did not let that get in the way of my daughter, I loved every minute with her.
Now I am married and have 3 sons, so I know a little about having boys.
Give him alot of love and he will be your best freind as mine are to me.

I think in my case its got better. I dont have to put up with her crap. Just be good parents for our son. She can bitch all she wants now, if dosen't pertain to our son, I dont listen. Push most of her calls to voice mail, listen to them when I want to.;)

Only about a mile. I get him once a week and every other weekend. Thru.-Mon. I fell apart today because I had him for nine days and really had a good time with him. Doing much better now.
