Just a vent here...

So...DSO's DS (13) came home today (after his one weekend a month with BM) to tell us that he has a new Dad and his new Dad is better than "old Dad" cause he takes him fishing every time he sees him. This, in and of itself, doesn't bother me because he's 13...of course you like "new Dad" better than "old Dad" if he's taking you fishing while "old Dad" is working to pay for life. What really bothered me was that he continued to refer to BM's "new" as "Dad" and actually referred to and addressed DSO as "old Dad". I would have slapped the chit out of my child if they addressed me as "old Mom". DSO thinks it's a phase he's going through as BM is trying her darndest to convince "boy" to move with her and "b/f of the week" but I thought it was really disrespectful and potentially hurtful. So...yeah...sorry...I'm not a SM but I read your board a lot (and the SM/BM Debate board for that matter) because I love the info I get by reading both sides...so, sorry to intrude but I had to vent somewhere and FaceBook wouldn't work...can't have BM reading it!
