Merry Freaking Christmas, With Love ~ Narcissist Dad
Over the years, Clyde constantly took me to court because Sweet Girl didn’t want to visit him. He played the “My ex-wife is evil and I’m just the victim” card with different judges and attorneys. In the summer of 2014, Clyde testified to a judge (with a single crocodile tear running down his cheek) that he had changed and just wanted a relationship with Sweet Girl.
*Fast-forward 18 months later*
Sweet Girl turned 18 and guess how often Clyde’s tried to contact her since she became a legal adult?
Answer: 0 times.
Now that Sweet Girl’s not a minor anymore, Clyde can’t use her to create drama in our custody battle and he’s written her off.
But just to rub it in and show her how much he’s written her off, this year for Christmas, Clyde mailed Happy Boy the first Christmas gift Clyde has ever sent: a Kindle tablet…….. but he included nothing at all for Sweet Girl. No gift. No apology. A nice little slap-in-the-face.
I messaged Clyde and said we have two children. His response?
“I’m not going to send a present to someone I haven’t talked to in 5 years. It doesn’t matter who it is.”
Yes, underneath all the lies and manipulation, that’s the father he really is. That’s the Clyde I know. Especially when he’s not showing off for the courts or in-laws. He’s quite different when his audience shrinks and his agenda changes.
The family court system needs to change.
