I sincerely appreciate everyone's support and/or advice on my last post. There is, however, something that I should clear up. Sammy is not Ethan's biological or adoptive father. His real father died in a car accident when Ethan was in my tummy. Although Sammy is all Ethan knows as his daddy, he does know that he is not his biological father.
Now here is where things are getting painful for me. (other than being punched in the eye, of course.) Ethan really wants to see Sammy. Regardless of what a low-life scum sucking piece of shit husband that bastard is, he's for the most part a great dad. I would NEVER allow my son to be around someone if I thought that he was in jeopardy of having bodily harm inflicted upon him. But for right now, I'm not letting Ethan see him because it's in his best interest to wait for things to settle down. I also need time to decide if I'll ever let Sammy see him again. To most of you, this may not be a hard decision, but to me it is. Why? Because sure it's hurting Sammy not to be around the wonderful boy he calls his son, but it's also hurting Ethan. YES, it's hurting Ethan to see his mommy with a black eye and so on, I know all of this. But please put yourself in my shoes. I have Ethan asking me every day if he can go over his daddy's house. So, there's my dilemma.
Anyway, I've come to the conclusion that Ethan is going to be a lawyer. The teacher gave them a small economics quiz which was comprised of 10 questions. When I saw the paper it originally had 9/10 = 90% written across the top. That was scribbled out and 100% was written. So I asked Ethan what had happened.
E: Read #3.
M: To purchase a product, the consumer must use cash with which to pay.
E: See, the answer is FALSE and that's what I circled, but the teacher said that's it's TRUE!
M: What is your reasoning for picking false?
E: Because you don't ALWAYS have to use CASH, Mommy. You can use a check, or your check card, or your credit card. So, the answer is FALSE!
M: And you told the teacher what you just told me?
E: Yup, and she marked it correct! She can't get those trick questions past me!!
