Do you like 'split' parenting? (only if you do)

As in do you like parenting closely with another parent that is an ex or does not live with you to achieve a good balance for your child? I love it, I think my son thrives from how close we keep our "relationship." I am blessed with a wonderful father to my son (I picked him, lol) and he has a decent girlfriend that treats my child very well. I also enjoy the alone time that many mothers don't get due to not splitting parenting between more than one parent. Do you like splitting time with the other parent?

  • his father and i are together but not married and i love it because our son is excited to see us and we are excited to see him. it takes a littl time apart to really make you appreciate what you have. also we work as a tag team. true, the tag out lasts longer on my side but atleast i can get the laundry started. i am worried for when we do get married because i see it suddenly becoming all my responsibility because, well, i am there. whereas i can't force my child upon him and run laughing out the door unless i go to walmart. but it will be nice to say, "your turn" when i smell a poopy diaper- true, it may not work but it will still be nice to try.

  • I would LOVE to have that! Too bad my son's "father" is a deadbeat.

  • i am trying my best to do that but i am in a different state with my baby right now so i can;t do it. but as i hope to move back to the state that my baby's father lives in i hope we can be coparents. but sometimes i feel he thinks he knows more because has another child and we aren;t on the same page. we both are stubborn. its going to be hard to compromise. but i am going to try.
