  • I would talk to Dad about it - you want him in your/kids life, but you need your money too - right? Ask him to chip in (once in a while, all the time - however often you feel is fair) See if Dad will agree and how it goes and if it doesn't change, well you have to decide how important it is to have Dad in your/kids life. Either way, you will have given Dad an opportunity to participate in your lives while not draining your bank account (gas is expensive!) or feeling resentment towards your Dad. I think you're giving a gift to your Dad for allowing him to share your kids lives (especially since he wasn't around much when you were younger) - it's his loss if he doesn't accept, honor, and cherish that gift. Big hug to you - GB and take best of care

  • Oh that IS irritating! I am thinking about it, and I don't know what I would do. I may just ask for gas money . . . I don't know. I have a hard time forgiving, and I don't know if I could get past a Dad who was absent.

    I'm sorry momma!
