DH finally saw SS
So after BM canceled SS12's spring break and summer visitations due to fear of COVID, DH decided to go out and do a 5-day visit out to BM/SS land and stay at a hotel to visit SS. Not sure why it was safer for DH to visit than the other way around, but that was BM's logic. She wasn't going to put SS on a plane. DH came back just disappointed with the trip. He said SS was surly, disinterested in anything and didn't seem to care that he was there. He felt disconnected and said that SS had a bad attitude the entire time, no matter what they were doing. And he said that SS completely perked up when he was taking him back to BMs.
DH hadn't seen SS since late January but has been keeping up with regular Facetimes/emails, etc. Would six months of not seeing each other cause this sort of disconnect? Or is because SS12 is turning into a surly preteen? DH was pretty disappointed that the trip wasn't very bonding.
