SS7 starts crying hysterically during a HAPPY movie tonight.Submitted by bulletproof on Sat, 08/11/2012 - 11:10pm
DH and I looked at each other like, "WTF?" After calming him down, SS7 tells us that he's sad about his dog that BM put down recently. (Recently I posted about this---it was DH's dog before he and BM married, she got the dog in the divorce, she was a bitch and put this dog down without telling DH ahead of time and then texted DH afterward to be a bitch and let him know. DH was pissed that she didn't let him know in advance so he could have had a chance to say goodbye if he had wanted to).
We talk SS7 through his feelings and learn that BM never told him that she was going to put this dog to sleep. It's been DH and I's understanding that SS7 had a pretty good bond with this dog, so when SS7 said he was sad because BM never told him it was going to happen and that he was sad he didn't get to say goodbye, we obviously understood. Add to that the fact that we had to put a dog down recently and SS7 knew about it in advance AND got to say goodbye and didn't have a meltdown over that dog and we know that BM yet again fucked up.
She easily could've asked us how SS7 handled us putting down our dog prior to putting down hers, since it happened like a month before she put hers down. But that would consist of her being humble enough to do such a thing, and it would mean she'd have to actually care about her son's feelings.
