Meet Me Halfway

hmph. so i gotta car. it isn't the BMW i dreamed of, but its decent transportation and i got a complete STEAL so who's complaining? I'll tell you who: Nel is.
if i hear one more time about "when are you going to bring the kids to see me?" i am gonna cut someone. i think he still has the undying dream that we are a "family" and that if i bring the girls down, there's no way I'm going to just come back home. boy does he have another thing coming. I understand that for the past year, any and all visiting has been him coming down here. HOWEVER, with my current job situation, i cant gallivant all over Virginia so he can play daddy for the day. besides that, i need a damn BREAK. I'm not taking the kids down there so he can watch TV on the couch while i chase after them! NO SIR! i can stay HOME and do that shit!
am i wrong? is it time for me to step up and start running them up and down the road more?

I think ya'll should alternate. If he expects you to bring the kids to see him then he can still come to see them.

Naw I don't think so. But I agree with lilioohpyt you guys should alternate. he should also realize that with you working now there are going to be times when if he truly wants to see the kids he needs to come see them.

well, I would say just let him keep coming to get them. BUT... its not totally fair so I think alternating is most fair. he should also think of your job though and sometimes if he really wants to see them and you cant bring them, then he should come get em.

Set up a neutral meeting spot...He needs to get the girls and keep them for the weekend...I say alternate every other weekend...

I agree with dalioness. He needs to alternate and take them for the weekend. Him haveing them at his house with you watching them is NOT being a father. he needs to step up and take on alone time with them. And I mean more than a day trip or u running to the store.

I think if you have full custody he should either come see you OR pick up your children and take them back with him. You can't be expected to do it all and given you are working and caring for the children, the burden of responsibility to travel to see the kids is entirely on him, and that is REASONABLE. Hang in there.
