My ex and I dated for about 5 months in 2005 while I was working in Los Angeles, we broke up because I came back home to New England and we both knew our relationship wouldn't last with thousands of miles between us - not when we were both incredibly involved in our work and at the time we were both 19 years old and even at that age 5 months isn't a long time. After I returned home I found out I was pregnant, I told my ex and he was supportive but I heard from his sister that their mother kind of lost it because she didn't like the fact that I came into town and "toyed with her son's feelings" and that I was now "claiming" to be pregnant by him. Just to avoid her gossip I had a paternity test to prove to her that her son was the father of my daughter.
My ex and I have never had any issues with custody or visitation; from the time she was born up until this year when she started school will had equal time with her and he agreed that she should go to school here in my town and he would get school vacations and he either flies out here or I send her to him 2 to 3 weekends a month so he still sees her a lot. He and I consider each other friends, we talk and hang out with and without our child. I think things are easy with us because our relationship didn't end badly and therefore we've always been able to talk amicably.
Right now is April Vacation from school so my baby is out in Los Angeles with her dad and while I was talking to him on the phone, after telling my daughter to get her butt in the bath and get ready for bed, I could hear his mom talking in the background and she said "You know the reason he and Ash had so many problems was because of that girl", my daughter than asked what girl and her bitch of a grandmother responded with "Your mother". She wasn't directing the first comment at my DD but said it with her in the room, another thing I can't believe is how she can blame me for their break up when my ex broke up with his girlfriend because she was cheating on him. It's not like I am the only female friend he has, I'm not even the only ex he is friends with - he is friends with two other ex-girlfriends.
