My kiddo finally joined the cub scouts this year, and he is so excited. It’s really adorable. I’m annoyed that I had to work so hard to convince my ex to let him do it. I’ve been trying for years. He has his reasons why he’s against it, but they are all stupid reasons in my opinion. Mostly, he’s just fucking lazy. I’m also annoyed with myself that I didn’t just sign him up back in kindergarten. The only reason he’s even doing it now is because I finally decided/realized that I don’t need his dad’s permission to enroll him in clubs/activities. I’m not asking him to be a part of it. If he doesn’t want to do this stuff with his kid then that is his decision and he will be the one who lives with the consequences.
Anyway, we went to pick up his uniform and stuff last night and he was so excited to try it on. We have a meeting tomorrow night and it’s all he’s been talking about. I’m so happy for him. He’s taking it very seriously and is excited to start earning badges.
