  • Why tell her anything? Dad was away for a while, now he isn't.

  • Don't let him come back unless you are both sure you are going to stay together. It will be too hard on you and your daughter. He can't have it both ways, stay with you when he feels like it and have his own place and be single when he feels like it.

  • Quit getting her in the middle of it. Don't tell her anything. Dads usually move back. Little kids just think dads are at work.

  • Yeah, I don't see why you have to tell her anything. Just let it play out.
