I find it so unbelieably sad that women on here will let there ex (ncp) walk all over them and call all the shots and claim they do it in the best interest for their child. Thats not called co-parenting thats giving them their own way. I have always been the type to faciliate the relationship between my children and their fathers.
My oldest sons dad is majorly verbally abusive and I refuse to communicate with him unless it is via text. He calls me a bad mother if I don't give him his own way and he isn't willing to co-parent with me. This week he is all mad because I won't let our son stay with him until 9 UNLESS he keeps him over night.
My oldest son is a type of child that if he is out late he is up all night until 1am or 2am, and he will still be up at 6am. I also have a two year old that wakes up between 5am and 5:30. So no I am not willing to get 3 to 4 hours of sleep I need sleep just like my ex claims he needs his sleep. Also he works about 20 hours a week and has no other children to take care of. So why can't he stay up late with our son? Why does he need his sleep?!?
People on here are crucifying me because I need my sleep sorry I bust my butt get up at 5am clean a huge house, do laundry, chase after a two year old all day cook dinner, involved in church activities 3 times a week so yes at night I am tired and want to sleep. People think I am being controlling when I am not.
I wouldn't care if my ex came 7 days a week to see our son as long as he had him back at a decent time or if he didn't for him to keep him overnight. He CHOOSE to see our son every other Saturday from 9am to 3pm. I did not pick those days or times. He yelled at the mediator when she asked him are you sure thats all the time you want and he yelled at her "I have a life too!"
