So yesterday, I posted a very angry blog about BM using sports to alienate and basically telling DH "eff you" in an email last night. See my other post for more info on that. Essentially, BM is using sports to deny DH his summer parenting time. BM made a huge fuss in court about sports being a "huge part" of SS's life and that his sports should be priority over DH's visitation. Because of this, the judge ruled that DH had to move his parenting time around to accomodate SS's summer sport obligations. The judge also ruled that BM only had to give DH one weeks notice for any changes she wants made to the summer parenting schedule.
SS never really seemed into his sports. BM drills it into him. She makes him breathe, sleep, and live sports. I swear she thinks SS will join the NFL and be her financial support after CS ends... Newsflash he is not NFL material. Anyway, yes, SS plays sports, but it's never been clear if he actually enjoys it or if he feels he has to do it to please BM. When he is with us, he wants nothing to do with sports, not to practice them or watch them on TV.
Well, tonight during our weekly phone call with SS, and conveniently after DH and BM's email crap last night, SS is now gung-ho on sports. He told DH he has started working out three days per week to prep and that he will start his actual sports 3 days per week very soon, which is a lie, his sports do not start until the last week of July. He told DH he is doing very intense workouts and he explained them. He is 8 and essentially doing P90X. He uses like a "Beachbody" app and everything. He also told DH he is drinking whey protein and trying to "bulk up". I don't know of an 8 year old going that isn't naturally a twig... Clearly, BM is ramping up the alienation hard-core.
