D's father lives in Connecticut and every couple of months we take the drive up to visit. Unfortunately this last trip I had to work and wasn't able to go with the fam. Needless to say, the kids had a blast and they were able to experience learning how to dance to bachata and merengue.
D and his father's relationship, now this is me looking in, is rather ambivalent. D is indifferent to his father's involvement in his life. While I am like D have you called your father this month, he is like no and makes no fuss about it. Yet, when he does call I notice a peace come over D that wasn't there before. This occurs after we go to visit as well. Because my father is such an important part of my life, it's hard for me to understand D and his father's relationship. So, I just fall back and let him go with the flow. I'm still trying to convince him to get his father to visit us in New Jersey, maybe for Thanksgiving. Let me tell you this man can cook his ass off.
