DD is having a kindergarten graduation at school. Because of limited seating in the cafeteria, each kindergartner only gets 3 tickets. I had planned on me, DH and my mom going since my mom is very close to DD, has been at everything for her and DD even said she wanted my mom there. We are having our other DD stay with my grandma so as not to use a ticket, she is only 2 anyway.
My ex, DD's father called for the first time since Christmas yesterday. He asked to talk to her and she told him she just go a pretty new dress for her graduation (we had just gotten home from buying it). He asked me when it was and I told him it was next month (didn't even tell him the day) but I said that she only gets 3 tickets so there wouldn't be one for him. He said that he should get a ticket because he is her father. I reminded him that he had not called in almost 4 months and hadn't taken visitation (daytime is all that is ordered) in about 5 months. He has never helped her with homework, been to her school, he doesn't even know where she goes to school or who her teacher is.
He just wants pictures to put on facebook so he looks like a good dad and so his mom can show pictures off. That's how it always is, when he takes her for visits, he usually only takes her for an hour or so. I talked to DD and she said she doesn't care if he comes but she wants mommy, daddy (yes, she calls my DH daddy, he has been the one there for her since she was 8 months old) and Grammy to come.
Ex threatened to take this to court and I told him go ahead and explain to the judge why you went 4 months with no contact with her. I am sure he won't bother about it anyway.
Thanks I'm done venting now
