I'll try to sum this up lol. My ex and I have a very unusual custody arrangement. If I don't have her, then I am usually working. He has recently decided to take a vacation and two of the days he is gone are the two full days he normally has her and therefore I will have her (I have a very flexible job where I can take her to work). I on the other hand cannot ask him to be with her if for some reason if I have something going on when I have her. The only person I can ask is my mom (that's a whole different story). I have recently started seeing someone but its very hard for us to spend the day together due to our opposite schedules and I ALWAYS have her during the day on the weekend. I am not ok with bringing him around her right away so I am just wondering what other moms have done that have been in my situation. Please only advise if you have been where I am. Thank you.Answer Question

Well if you are saying that if she isn't with him that she might as well be with you, then when exactly are you going to spend time with this new love interest? At work? Sometimes you have to pick your battles and put yourself first once in a while. Either let him worry about finding a babysitter for her if he has something planned for himself, or deal with her getting in the way of your personal adult time.

How old is she? How about Preschool or Camp during the day & a baby sitter occasionally at night.
