I am divorced from my kids father, he has always been a very good father, until he started dating this new woman ( I have liked the other women he has dated, but I dont know what he was thinking when he found this one) ..... anyways they were suppose to pick up the kids up today & keep them all night, and 20 minutes before they were suppose to get them she called to let me know that they cannot BABYSIT tonight........GRRRR

  • Yes. Mine even asked me to pay him for babysitting and quoted me a price 3 times higher than he was SUPPOSED to pay in Child support (but he never paid it).

  • Unfortunately, this man is thinking with his little head, not his big one. He as forgotten that his children should always come first. This is so sad

  • Yup, my ex acts like I need to do something in return for him whenever I go out and he has to watch our daughter for a little while. What irritates me even more though is how I always have to explain things to him, like when she needs to eat and what time she takes a nap, like he IS a babysitter.

  • Wow, that is so not babysitting, FOR HIM, but for her it is. Hopefully, she won't last long.
