    Hope,
    We know you did not intend to be malicious! And you certainly have nothing to be ashamed of by giving another perspective on the matter.

    As beauty said, thank you for sharing such personal feelings. You know, had I not had the accidental pregnancy during a turbulent time of my marriage, I would be without a child as well. I still cannot say had that been my case, whether or not I would have missed it. I never had the yearning to be a mother. It just happened. But then if I had not, I've seven siblings and 17 nieces and nephews so I could always borrow one if I wanted to see one of those cool "kids" movies.

    Hi Everyone!

    Hey Bill,

    I thought you would enjoy this pic since you live in AZ too, lol. Talk to you soon.


    Hard to tell what that really was BL. In AZ., someone might have just been heating up their lunch or with those yellow stripes it may have been a mustard commercial. lol.

    All I, as a childless person, can contribute/advise on this topic is: why dwell on this 1 day in the year if it did not work out right for you? Should you not rather be happy you are parents in the 1st place and take advantage of this priviledge each and every of the other 355-odd days of the year???

    Usually we're on the same page, Hope but on this one I would say, slightly off.

    No, one doesn't dwell (too long) on the one day. You cannot, especially if the children are not of age to make their own choices without worrying about the
    repercussions from the selfish parent. And every day (well, most!)you share with your kids is a cherished gift.

    How-ev-er...imagine having a very special day set aside just for you and the one person you want to hear from doesn't call, write, do something. It can be disappointing. No, not devastating, but it can hurt. Even when, as in this instance, you know it wasn't the child's fault.

    I think we're just angry with the mother and empathizing with dad.

    Hi Everyone!

    Well miss Sharp1,

    I am here reading this at 1:30 PM in the afternoon. So I guess this puts holes in your theory, lol. I have not heard from or seen my boyz yet today. Looks like another dad's day without seening them, oh well- life goes on. I am sad though that I did not get to spend any time with them. The ex can and is so nasty at times and she knows it will deliver maximum impact. The trick is to not let her know that it hurts, and say that I had something else going anyways, lol. I think it works, but don't know for sure. Are you packed yet for NYC, lol? Ok, talk to you soon sweetie.


    I'm sorry your boys didn't get to share the day with you, BL. She knows it hurts. Saddest part is her selfishness to hurt you outweighing what is best for the kids.


    A bummer BL. I feel badly for you too. IMHO, the people that exhibit that type of spiteful and mean spirited behavior always end up the real losers in the end.

    Happy Father's day to you BL, RHC and all other dad's who enrich their children's life in ways that no one else can.

    Both of my dads have now passed and there is a hole in my heart even at my age. One (natural father) taught me the gift of living life fully, how to play competitive sports and was the best slow dancer I've known. The other (step dad since 13 yo) taught me
    that there are men who give selflessly, are compassionate and sensitive.
