New Blog Names
I’ve been thinking a lot about what I call our son on this blog. I’ve always called him “Little D” because my wife’s first name also begins with D. But he’s not so little anymore and hasn’t been for some time. He used to be shorter and rounder, but now he is a tall, lean, mean, muscle building machine! So from now on, he will be referred to as Big D:) (I know, so creative, right?!)
After Big D’s phone call with his “father”, he asked that we not to refer to his “father” as that anymore. We now call him “The Donor” around the house, so that is how I will refer to him here. (Big D sometimes refers to him as “Dummy”, which is quite funny when he says it!)
Anyway, right after I posted the last blog about the phone being quiet, The Donor tried to call that night. He did not leave a message. This past weekend he called again and did leave one. It said, “Hey Big D, this is your father. I would really like to talk to you. Please call me.” We all can’t believe that he still does just not get it. Big D does not want to talk to him or see him, or have anything to do with him. He told him himself! Big D heard it and said, “yeah right! I’m not calling him!”
Then, yesterday there was a call from a telemarketer on our answering machine for The Donor. We all laughed so hard. They are trying to locate him (we are guessing because he owes money). Good luck with that!
Even still, the house has been so peaceful, and Big D has been so happy these past few weeks.
We’re supposed to have a court date with The Donor on the 23rd, but we know he hasn’t been complying and may not even show. Nothing ever happens to him for not complying, and we really don’t want to see him, so we are not going and not telling them. They will dismiss the case, but what good has the case been doing anyway? None. That way, if he does show, he will have driven an hour and a half for nothing. We have taken so many days off work just to go there and have him not show up, so now it’s his turn!
We are seriously looking into the adoption route (me adopting Big D) and there is a way to do it without the consent of The Donor, but we have to prove him unfit…..that shouldn’t be a problem!! Wish us luck!
