Kiddo goes with his dad every other weekend. This is his weekend with his dad. So is my weekend kid-free. But is not totally free. My dad lives with us plus now we have the dog. So it doesn't feel like a free-weekend unless I go out. And here I am, another Saturday night, and I am home. Again.
I never did get the knack of dating. I didn't go out when I was a teenager. I was "the responsible one".
And being "the responsible one" now means that I don't bring my child around someone that might not be there in the long run and/or someone that I don't want him to meet, period. I may, will go out with them and stuff, but not around my kid. Which means I technically only have two nights or so, per month, to do this.
And tonight is one of those nights, and I am home. Again.
Being the responsible one feels so lonely sometimes.
