I have a DD with my ex who is 3 and a baby with my DH who is 1 month old. My ex is supposed to take DD for Christmas Eve dinner and have her home before bed. He said he will do presents with her then. Then I reminded him that I had told him earlier that any presents he gets her need to stay at his house. I explained to him that we don't have room for extra toys (and he is the kind of dad who buys love" so he buys her these huge presents that we have no room for then I have to get rid of some of our stuff to make room for it). Since we live in an apartment, we don't really have any storage space like we used to in the house we rented before. So all of the stuff we used to keep in the shed and attic (with the exception of the lawn equipment) now have to fit in the closets. Well he said that they are her toys and he will send them home with her if he wants to. I said no, it's my home, we don't have room for them so they need to stay at your house. I also mentioned that it would be a good thing for her to have toys at his house so when he does have her (which is usually only once a month, his choice) she has something to do besides watch TV. He said "well I don't have room". So for some reason, I am supposed to make room for these toys that he buys when he can't be bothered to do so? I plan on if he tried to drop her off with the toys I will tell her "tell daddy thank you for the toys and you will see them next time you come over, won't that be nice" and then hand them back. I may let her pick one to keep over here if he tries this but I really hope he doesn't. What would you do? BTW before people say "just make room" there is no room to make. All of the closets are full with stuff we need (like Christmas decorations, baby clothes from my DD that my younger one will wear and even stuff we use on a daily basis)Answer Question
