This is my first article. I just wanted to come on here to speak my mind I guess. So here goes.

My problem is my mom. She's a lovely lady; sweet, kind, thoughtful. But the last couple of months has been hard for me. She and her ex are still friends and I mean it's ok because she told me that she doesn't have feeling for him. But they're still friends. Recently she's been spending a lot of time with him. At first I was like cool she's going out and having fun. When it comes to hanging out with my sister and I she says she's tired. So I'm like okay she's working so hard so she needs her rest.

But this is getting out of hand. She's always on the phone with him, she goes to his house constantly. She leaves his house and goes straight to work. Then she gets home and she's on the phone with him, then she goes to bed. We barely get to see and hang out with her anymore. We were suppose to do so much stuff over the summer but she keeps putting them off because she's hanging out with her friends.

Saturday was my sister's birthday so my mom took us to the Planetarium and of course her new bestie came along. We had a nice time at the museum then we went to eat. Fast forward about half an hour we're at the restaurant. The two of them were just whispering and giggling and acting as if my sister and I weren't here. And that hurts. Everything has been about him and my sister and I are feeling left out which makes us angry. I feel like I'm loosing my mom and I don't know what to do.

I know this article was a little long. Not even sure anyone will read this but if a miracle happens and someone sees this, can you give me some advise on how to handle this situation, Thanks
