Let's say BD has 2 days off a week- not same day each week either- & he has the kids when he is off (yes, this is my scenario- his parenting time is with reasonable notice of his work schedule). Say he wants to take them swimming. Now neither of us can afford 2 swimsuits for each of our 4 kids so they just take back & forth. BUT who should a) provide the towels? b) provide sunscreen for all of them? & c) provide floaties for the 4yo (who BTW does not need them when he is with me).
Now let's say it's said day off (no swimming due to rain) & BD gets the kids & is told 4yo woke up with headache & fever. So I gave him Mortin when he got up. Now 3 hours into BD having kids he a) texts saying "you can pick up the kids by 730 so they can eat dinner" & then b) "Shawn is still not feeling well" I asked if he had Motrin for his 2yo & the reply was "No". So I say "IDK what you want me to do! I can either pick them up no to give him Motrin & put him in bed OR he waits til 730?" He says "come get them now".
Sorry it's so long. I just wanted to find out if SM & BD provide the little things too or if I'm asking too much of him? Maybe I'm just expecting too much? LOL
