I received the emails below and I am not sure what ti think.

Will Julie be attending the dance this year? I know the kids are very fond of her, so she should be included if that’s something you feel is important for you guys and the kids. I don’t want her, or you and the kids, to ever feel or think that she shouldn’t be somewhere because I am. I’m sure that’s not the case, but I wanted to make myself clear where that is concerned. It was nice meeting her at the Greek Reunion over break. She seems very sweet and compassionate and most importantly is good to our children, which is truly all I care about. Just thought I’d throw it out there in case you were considering it.

First, let me fill in a few blanks.  Julie is my girl friend of over a year and for the past six months has been a part of my life and the kids.  Second, on 23-December at an event that Julie and I attended, my ex was there and came up and introduced herself as “Chris’ Ex”.  With that said, I am not sure why the above email was sent or why or what would give my ex the impression that I care what she thinks and that I am letting her control what I do and where I go.

My ex has called me a narcissist in the past, but I am starting to see and think that it is actually her that is the narcissist.  I am just trying to live my life and be the best dad and boyfriend that I can be.  For my ex to send this email, I really don’t know what to say.  Maybe there is a little jealously and this is her way of showing it.  Yes, my girl friend is younger than her and skinnier than her and in my opinion prettier than her.  She is definitely nicer to me and treats me better than I could have ever imagined to be treated.

Including my girl friend in something that is important to me and my children will never be dictated by my ex or her family.  I will always go where I want and when I want as I have nothing to be ashamed about.  She is the one that left, not me.  I am not the one who did something wrong.
