Are any of you in this situation? My STBX favors my 6 yr old son over my 2 year old twins. Even though he says he doesn't, it's always been obvious. A male friend told me that's how Dads always are with the oldest, because they can relate to them and handle them better, but I don't know. He always calls to talk to my oldest, but never asks to talk to the younger two. I know 2 year olds can't have much "conversation" but wouldn't you want them to hear your voice and to hear theirs? My Mom and sister always "talk" to all 3 of my kids on the phone. My stbx moved out about 3 weeks ago and did take all three last weekend (and they all did well, and my stbx did a good job) which I know that's a good situation. However, he comes to the house to pick up more things when my twins are napping (yes, he knows their schedule), picks up my oldest from school and takes him on extra overnights, plans special outings with him. On one hand, my twins have no idea what is going on but my 6 yr old does, so we are more careful of his feelings, but on the other, it makes me hurt for the younger two because I feel they are left out. Am I being overly sensitive or am I just a normal Mom who loves all of her children equally? Should I just be grateful he's in their lives? Just wanted to know if anyone is in the same boat.
