Do any of you deal with a situation like this? Both of my sons, who are 12 and 14, play baseball during the week and all weekend. Well, when they go to their dad's every other weekend, they look at me and talk to me at the games like they wish I would just go home and stop bothering them. It's almost like they aren't supposed to talk to me while they are with their dad. He is, by the way, remarried. It really hurts my feelings, especially when they do this in front of their dad and his new family. I have never missed one of my boys games in 11 years, but for some reason it just got to me this weekend. I stayed and watched both of their first games, but went home after that. I just felt like telling them that if they can't be nice to me then I really don't want to stay. I know it sounds like I am just feeling sorry for myself, but I've had enough of them treating me this way. My 12 year old had another game at 9:00 this morning and I didn't go to it either. He called me afterwards and told me they won, were going out to eat, were going to cancel the pitching lessons on Sunday's and reschedule them for Monday's, and would play again this afternoon at 1:30. I am so hurt, all I could say was, "O.k., I really don't care, bye!" I then hung up and cried my eyes out like I am doing at this very moment.
