We were all prepared for her to take Junior to New School on Monday, even though doing so would have been insane since she had a court order, which she had signed, telling her she couoldn't change schools. Bart called early Monday and ex had driven Junior to Old School. What a relief. I'm sure she has plans to try to get him into New School again, but for now Junior is safe and probably can't wait to get to Bart's house. Sadly, from what he says (and he is always hesitant to talk about it), she is taking a lot of her anger at Bart out on him. This hits me in the gut because t his happened to me with my own mother. Junior looks just like Bart and is more like Bart than her (such as he is extremely bright, which ex can not relate to...he gets knocked down there for being "too smart for your own good" said in a nasty way.) Junior tried to imitate her and he had tears in his eyes. And it's true that he does sound smart, if that makes any sense. Ex is partial to her new baby that she just had with the man who ran off with her, it seems.That is how Junior feels. Yet he loves his brother too. He has a good heart. It's so hard for him to have to go through this. But there is nothing anyone can do about it. At least for now she hasn't gone off the rails and violated a court order. Bart has a date in court in Sept. (a pre-trail) as he is tryiing to have residential custody switched. October is the trial. These courts take so long!!!
