My 17 month old daughter adores her father, which is wonderful, but he isn't comfortable having visitation away from my home. So he comes to my home when he wants to visit with her. The problem is, he wants to spend the ENTIRE DAY here, and I don't want him to. I have a life of my own. My daughter and I have a fairly predictable routine, and when he's visiting, the routine gets messed up.
He was working, so he hasn't spent a lot of time over here in the past few weeks, but now he's been laid off, and he's been at my house since noon (almost ten hours now).
Do I have the right to tell him that I don't want him at my house all the time? He IS my daughter's father, and I'm so grateful that they love each other so much, but don't I have the right to not have an all day visit?
**In case it comes up, I am disabled and not working at the time, so I stay home with my daughter all day.
