    away from the main trailhead and tell me about his first opportunity to camp alone and have some blueberry cake. his father said 'no we are in a rush' (to go hang out at lake house). such a bummer to co parent with someone so uncool, negative and such a killjoy who will not let his kid see his mom for 5 mins on 'his time' -- I never act like this. also he is a rageaholic and lately i notice whenever we are all together and i ask the kids a question 100% of the time they glance over at him and keep their eyes on him while they answer me. it makes me so sad.
