  • You should probably face up to his short comings. Do you want them to be part of your entire future life and that of your daughter? Who is moving three hours him or you? What about jobs? Is he thinking about the practical aspects or is he just not wanting to make the move. Does he support you financially? How often does he travel the three hours to see you and the baby?

  • it would be me and the baby moving to where he is he doesnt support me finiacially and he only see the baby once per month if that .he has a job ..i would have to look for one ...but my thing is he should be doing way more than he is and its frustrating .because im not happy where i am ..i have to get out of this house fast and he knows my home situation ..hes annoying and its like wtf is wrong with you I need to post at posted to your forhead ..take care of your damn child can you not see you kid everyday ..he doesnt feed clothed ..nothing ..he comes down and just look at her like she a toy and he says i would be able to do more if we all lived together this point im think i just need to get my own place and stay in the state i am in and continue to give her the best that i can

  • Move on.... You dont need to live with him. If he is not coming around you forcing him or pushing him to will only make him regret your daughter

  • Girl! This has COMPROMISE written all over it.... and the last thing you want is a communal living situation born out of compromise and circumstance. DON'T DO IT. I think your last thought is the best thought.... get your own place and continue to do the best you can for her (and you). It is what it is - and right now, you know it's not right. You know common sense when you see it, and you already know that this "wait till the end of the year" crap is just that - crap. Don't talk yourself into walking into a situation that you already know you shouldn't be in. You sound perfectly capable of supporting your child and teaching her well. Good luck Momma.
