Sounds like you need to be more mad at your DH for allowing this kind of behavior due to his being scared to parent his child.

I hope your frustration is solely with your DH.   This isn't a BM or SD problem, this is a DH problem. 

I'm BM.  I can 'decide' that BF will give me $3000/month in CS.  That doesn't mean he will or I'll get what I want!  I can 'decide' that BF will pay for me to buy a new car.  That doesn't mean he will or I'll get what I want.  Heck, I can 'decide' BF isn't going to see his boys anymore.  That doesn't mean he won't see them anymore and that he won't fight me on it (and he shouldn't give in!).   See how this works.  BM is free to 'decide' anything she'd like, but BF is free to 'decline' to go along with BM if he wishes too. 

The lack of parenting ability your DH is expressing in this rather simple situation is appalling.

No her school open and he won't be here. I understand should go toward my dh which it is and we had a long talk about how her not going to school today wasn't right ..

If Dad isn't home then SD goes to school or stays with Mom.

Why are you allowing your DH to use you for babysitting services? 

Lol, the little pinch of evil Kelly would tell ou to drop sd to DH at work, however... I would never be put in this position.
