I agree. A stern I hope you learned your lesson never do that again is all he would get from me.

That and an explanation of why a kid can't control a 450lb bike and a promise to let him ride as soon as he's big enough if he promises not to mess with it without asking.

He isn't hurt, that's the main thing. Look at it this way, what happened is better than him getting out on the street with it, going through the gears back to the grocery store.

That's the biggest thing that scared me. We live right on a state highway. And while it's not a real busy one, he very easily could've been T-boned by a 60mph log truck if he'd managed to make it to the road.

I'll own up to it, after I logged off about an hour and a half or so ago, I cried a bit until I stretched out in the lazy boy and took a nap.

Delta, I came damn close to losing because of an assault/abuse accusation. I wasn't allowed to even speak with him on the phone for quite a while. A few things saved us and turned it around in his favor.

One: if I'd held my kid down and pummeled his face, giving him black eyes and a fat lip as she claimed I did, then why did she not take pictures and go to the police? This was a question asked by the judge, and of course my ex had no answer.

Two: my son was seeing a therapist. She'd testified by phone that he was a compulsive liar, very suggestible, and that his mother seemed to be the root of both problems. His mom has apparently many times convinced him to go along with a lies (to the extent of which, I'm STILL finding out) and this had him convinced that lying is okay. I've rectified that little problem. Honestly, shamed him out of it more than anything. Not proud of that, but it was dammed effective. Now he'll break down and cry before he'll speak a word that's not the truth.

And on top of this, I had further testimony from the therapist about his mom's more illicit behavior, as related to her by my son, and proof of some more.

If you Google her name, you get at least 10 pages in results. From porn sites.

He doesn't know, but he was going to go anyway. It's like I'm raising my mother's kid or some ****.

You hope it scared him because if not he's thinking he's invincible!!!

This may not seem big to some people, but when you're constantly bombarded by this stereotype the way I am, it gets freaking old.

At least once a week, ESPECIALLY on the weekends, I get some comment to the same effect of, "well it's good you're spending time with your kid since I know you couldn't possibly actually have full custody."

It's bad enough that I don't even really want to leave the house on the weekend.

Again, maybe once or twice... I could deal with. But damn near every... Freaking... Time?

Come on. It's the 21st century. Drug using, prostituting, abusive mom's don't always get custody anymore just because they pushed the kid through their vagina.
I don't get why people feel like they need to comment on stuff like that, I get the rude, judgmental comments because Im young and have kids. (I'd like to note that my children are always clean, appropriately dressed, and reasonably well behaved...yeah, Im in my twenties, but that doesn't mean I'm not a capable mother) People will always assume whatever they want, but you'd think they'd learn to stfu to people they don't know.

I didn't express myself properly on this. I have been massively flamed on here because I said " till death do us part" actually means till death do us part not "till death or a sleazy lawyer does us part" unless there is actual abuse. I am not arguing that here what I am saying is what made her decide you were a single dad just because you were eating ice cream with sue on the weekend. I think this says more about our society than it does about us. Again I am not trying to open a divorce thread here, every bodies experience is different. It just saddens me that her assumption was you were a single dad rather than just having lunch with your kid while running regular Saturday afternoon errands the way my daughter and I did before my wife decided she "wanted to be on her own".

The sad part is those old ladies were mothers at or before your age and somehow forgot that young ladies have been proper mothers for centuries. If you started your family in your mid 20s you started 10 years later than the ladies of 100 years ago and they raised children that handled a great depression and 2 world wars, why the hell would you be less capable than they as a mother.

I honestly don't think your comments are appropriate here regarding marriage and divorce.

I'm pretty sure I understood, I'm just not sure it's applying correctly in my mind.

I'm beginning to think it's become obvious I have no lady at home. I'm picked out at a glance as a single dad pretty often.

I've seen women check my finger. Some have tried to give me their numbers, some like to run their mouth.

One woman, an older one like I encountered today, when she discovered Sue lives with me every day and not just every other weekend (she actually ASKED how many weekends I get with my son) assumed my ex was dead and offered me her condolences on my loss.

Sue was like, "she ain't dead. She just isn't a very good mommy."
