My younger son is causing marital distress.
For the past month or so he has been making mention of his Army dad. I have no idea what he is talking about.
The first time it happened he told the hubby that he needed to go see his Army dad. Hubby looked at me like WTF? I just shrugged and suggested that maybe Cashman just had a very big imagination.
It went on and on with the Army dad being mentioned daily. To the point where my husband was actually a bit suspicious of me having a fling with a man in uniform. That in itself made me nearly wet myself with laughter. If you know me at all in real life you know that one of the things I hate most in this life is a cheater. You know I am loyal and you know the fierce love I have for my husband. You also know I am a overworked, non-paid SAHM of three and finding the time for an affair would be impossible and quite laughable.
I explained very nicely and patiently to my husband all of these particulars and once again blamed it on our son's love of all things Army including guns and camo. I also figured that since my eldest son has two dads (the ex and the hubby) that maybe Cashman was just trying to even things out by inventing another dad for himself.
An imaginary Army dad.
Just last night as the hubby was tucking in the boys, the Monster asked to call his Dad and tell him goodnight. Within seconds, Cashman was saying he was gonna call his Army dad too. The hubby just shook his head and calmly told him that he was his only dad and unfortunately he wasn't in the Army.
I don't think he's satisfied with this and I see many more episodes of the Army dad in our future. As long as I don't have to set the guy a place at the table, I'm cool with it.
