Clear up until katie moved into the apartment..............katie and the kids were always talking M this and M that. Almost to the point where I wanted to put my hand over their mouths so I wouldn't have to hear it anymore. Now? He's not been mentioned. Nothing about M not coming to the family dinner. Nothing about M missing the easter egg hunt. Nothing about how wonderfully M is doing with his new job. Nothing about missing M. Nothing. Which stands out as ODD when they drove us nuts with it before. Even if I talk to them on the phone in Mo it was always M this and M that. Enough to gag a person. Yet supposedly at the shelters the boys threw such humongous tantrums over their dad being on the men's side that shelter staff broke the rules and let the boys sleep with him. What about all the stories about how especially the boys couldn't survive without their dad? Hmmm. Is it just me or is that like making anyone else do a wth? easy child and Nichole are stumped too. We've been careful to be polite. There have been no words. No reason for them to feel they can't/shouldn't talk about him as far as we're concerned.
