(as a few of you know) i now have to share my kids with my convicted felon ex. im not really sure if they have to go over there starting this weekend or next, the order says effective aug. 20th but it's every other weekend and it doesn't say who starts. i don't think im going to bring it up unless he does... lol
anyway it also states that whoever has them in their care is suppose to provide for all of their needs. they don't have any clothes for them and i don't even know where they're going to sleep. the house is a 3 bedroom, he has one room, his mom the master and his pot smoking sister the other room. i do know that they have 2 toddler crib mattresses that i gave them last year when i didn't need them anymore.
so, would you send clothes for your kids or not?
part of me is being the overprotective mom that doesn't want my kids to go without clothes for an entire weekend, and doesn't want my 3 year old to sleep in her own pee if they don't buy pullups for her because she still wets the bed at night.
but the other part is saying, he doesn't pay C/S and he has a job so he has every reason to be able to buy clothes/pull ups/food for them and it's not my job to make sure that he does, is it? i dont see HIM worrying about how they're eating or being clothed while i've been the only one responsible for them for the last 4 years.

You could casually call and say the kids are looking forward to being with you, they miss you. Do you need me to pack pull ups food and clothes for them or did you have a chance to go to walmart and get some of that stuff. That way it sounds like your offering but really your making a point that they need stuff. It won't take long for him to realize what they need once he's had them a while.
