When he first learned to say "dada" he wouldn't just blurt it out as a single word. It was more like a nursery rhyme and he'd sing it: "daaaaa daaaa". He'd switch up the emphasis from the first "da" to the second, the pitch, the volume, and he'd repeat it over and over again. Each time, I'd match his cadence and reply "boyyyyy boyyyy" and it's the nickname I still call him by almost two years later. 

It's been almost a week since I've last seen my Boy Boy, my custody having been reduced to a mere 3 weekends a month. In that time, I've spoken with two other lawyers besides my own. They both told me the same thing my lawyer told me, that the judge got a wild hair up her ass and screwed me over. I've had split custody of him since November but the judge suddenly decided my ex and I were too contentious and took my son almost entirely from me. There's been no neglect, abuse, or any sort of charge against me as a father, but he's still not with me. 

My lawyer is fuming and he's saying we can be back in court within a month and have this overturned. If that doesn't work, it's off to the supreme court which could be a 6 month process. In the meantime, there's no way my ex is going to make any settlement, she's been trying to screw me over since we broke up. There's nothing else I can do and nothing can fill this void. 

I'm not done shedding tears over his absence, but I'm not done fighting for his time. One day, this lost time will be recouped and I'll be able to hold onto him a little longer. Until then, I'll miss my Boy Boy.
