I f*ing HATE my ex-husband. He called me tonight to make sure I knew about my daughter skipping school and being in my apartment with her friends with no supervision. That man just has a way of twisting things to make it seem like it's all my fault and I'm the bad parent. And he wanted to know what I was doing about it. There is a part of me that wants to just tell him that if he thinks him and his little girlfriend can do a better job, then fine. He can have all 3 of the kids and I will just move in with my boyfriend.
But there is another part of me that knows I would be absolutely torn apart and miss my kids. I don't think I'm a bad mom. EVERYBODY skips school. I did when I was a kid. Heck, my ex used to skip WITH me. Yeah, we didn't go to his house or my house, but we went to a park or his van and "made out".
My ex wants to take ground her for a month, have her do all kinds of extra chores, take away her phone for a few days, take texting away forever, and of course lecture her forever about it. It's a good thing I decided not to be too harsh on her.
So, to make this a question, how do I handle him turning it to make it look like I'm the one who screwed up here?
