i already miss my son joey. he has been gone for all of 40 minutes. his dad is taking him to the airport. i cant cry in front of him, because it makes him cry which makes me cry even harder....vicious cycle...
anyway...while he was here. i was at first so excited for him to be here...then i realized that he wasnt the same man i saw a year ago. i still love him unconditionally, but he has changed soooo much. he is “involved” now. with a married woman...with a small child that calls him that was a hard one...the soon to be ex husband is a marine as well. these people are trained to kill other people with their bare hands....anyway....
when he first got here, it was all about seeing everyone, being with the family and lording over the younger siblings freaking them out with brotherly about sibling rivalry....he will be the perfect drill instructor.
the second day brought out the ugly side of him. he has become verbally abusive to his younger sibs and all they want to do is be in his presence...constantly nagging, putting them down...they dont understand that he has been in a war zone twice and has seen things that he hopes they never do....marines are a tough group.
after the third day, he was on the phone with the woman constantly. texting, facebooking, passing pictures, comments, sitting at the dinner table with the phone between his legs so he could look down and not miss a text message from her. im talking ever 30 seconds for several hours.
i know im being a bitchy momma, but i thought this visit was about visiting with his aging grandparents who helped raise him, seeing his siblings that couldnt wait for him to be here, and spending a little time with me and his daddy.
i want to be there for him, i want him to come here to visit, i want so much for him....
i miss him already and he has only been gone for an hour now.

    • i feel for you, but i hate to say it.. it sounds like to me that all he can think of is the girlfriend and nothing else.. he has evidently lost sight of his family roots and ties!
      i know it is hard for you to see it and deal with it, but he was there, but sounds like he did not want to be there!!

      hopefully, the next time you see him, he will not feel like it is a chore,to be there!!
      god bless you and your family..
      by the way, i have a family member that has done the same thing in the past.....
