My 5 yr old daughter grew up knowing her father. But once I was 4 mo pregnant with my 2nd daughter I couldn't stand being with the dead beat anymore. So we broke up. Since then, he comes around about every 6 or 7 mo (this has been going on for over 3 yrs now) and my oldest falls madly in love with her father over and over again. She occasionally asks when she will see him again and I just tell her I don't know or I let her know that she has a great dad in my bf. (We've been together for almost 2 yrs now) Anyway.. Easter is coming up and its usually this day that he sees them again and I seriously have to mentally prepare myself for the heart break that he causes my girls.
Does anyone have any suggestions to possibly make this less painful?

Wow, that would be hard! Have you ever asked him why he stays away so long and explain the effect it has on her? Thats really sad and very selfish on his part.
