  • I would go and see what he wants. How old is your daughter? Can you ask her for her opinion?

  • Go, find out what he wants, and figure your next step.

  • I would just go. Him not being there for 6 months will just look bad on him, Gl.

  • I agree with gabby06 him not being there just looks bad on him. Just go and see what he wants.

  • My thought is you think t-ball is more important than spending time with her father. Yet a decent father would take her to t-ball and watch her. Good luck. I would go to mediation and see what he wants. See what excuses he has for the last 6 months.

  • Go and find out what he wants but don't make any hasty decisions while there. Take your time on that

  • I think you should find out what he wants and why this new attitude of wanting to be in her life.

  • No matter what he does or how he acts, he is your daughter's Father. I would go and find out what he wants but I would do my best NOT to do shared parenting. If he continues with the on again / off again attitude with your daughter, she will figure out on her own that he is a chump and not want to see him.

  • i would talk to your dd and see what she thinks... then go and see what happens... if you have made the effort and he has not... things may change.
