"Don't you dare walk.. It's stupid!"update, were home!

Posted by   + Show Post
These are the exact words I've gotten from my ex husband because I plan to walk to my daughters doctor appointment tomorrow. I am 20 and live at home with my father while I go to school my daughter lives with me and I'm divorced. ( sound like a winner huh?) well I cannot drive with my daughter because I am a fairly new driver and I suck at driving and my parents nor I want to put my daughter at risk even if the place is close to home. Well my ex txted and said he could not come and get us and take us to the appointment.. We really need to go she is having more troubles at night an I'm worried that her sleep apnea is back.. So I can nt just reschedule yes it's my fault for losing track of time I thought the app was next Thursday not this so I didn't give him a weeks notice but she still needs to go. It's my fault I lost track of time and I don't have a ride so I'm going to own up and walk. I need to leave here between 6-630am so that I give my self enough time to walk the distance. It is about a 10-15 car drive so I'm guessing its going to be at least an hour and a half way that's why I want to give my self two- two and half hours to get there. Well my ex is pissed that I'm going to walk and I think is calling my dad as I type to explain to him why I need to endanger my daughters life when I can walk instead. I wish I had a bike with a seat on the back but I don't.

What would you do? I'm just wondering I'm not changing my mind. I sent him a txt back saying " it is stupid to miss an appointment I know y daughter needs just because I can't drive have to perfectly fit legs to carry me there" he hasn't responded

** it is a 4 mile walk doable at a nice pace in an hour an a half it is not to hot here and the sun will be up. I can't drive because my father wot let me drive with my daughter and I will lose my place to live if I choose to disobey him. There are side walks all the way there and it is not a busy road I am taking and it is a nice area. There are no busses that are close I don't have money for a cab an I will look into the free service that pa provides but it won't help me tomorrow since I have to leave so early. It is safer to choose o walk even if it is a far walk my daughter is worth it. I have already packed drinks and snacks for the walk and we will be ok

**** I did not sleep at all last night my daughter was up at 3 and refused to go back to sleep we left at 6 am and arrived at the doctors office at 7:15 there we waited till 8:30 to see the doctor and were done by 9 and and 10:15 this morning I have returned home. We did not stop at the park because it was really hot and we are both very tired. My ex was pissed that I walked and his parents are pissed at him for him not taking us. So he is asking about all my next appointments so I never have to walk again. It was a lovely walk there and horrid on the way home. I wish I had one of those bikes with the seat on the back it would be faster and cooler to ride that and I would often. I map quested the miles this morning before I left and I walk almost 10 miles total 4.97 there and 4.97 back. Thank you to all the ladies who were supportive and gave me advice! Have a great day!

LOL @ the people saying not to walk. Seriously? Its not like the appointment was at 1 o'clock in the dead of the heat.
I know, Don't walk, drive, and then when you get home give your child a bag of Cheetos and plop them in front of the TV! Who needs fresh air and exercise?
Damn. What did people do before cars were invented? Good for you for finding an alternative solution AND getting exercise while you're at it.

This is dumb. CPS is not going to take her kids because she walked to a doctor's appointment. People, including children, have had to walk places many a times. There is no danger in walking a child anywhere. At least she was resourceful and didn't let anything stop her from getting her child to the doctor.

See that's what makes silly little people like you the reason EVERYONE has problems with CPS. You think subjecting a small child to the heat when she has no business doing so means she'll get laughed at. Will you pay that child's medical bills when she gets heat stroke from a dumb mother? Mother doesn't deserve it for putting her daughter in danger and neither do you. Taking your child into the heat on PURPOSE to hurt them is wrong. If you think its the right thing to do them maybe you shouldn't have kids.

Omg all this over walking to an appointment???
Lmao I spend hours walking around town with my kids. It's called getting exercise and fresh air. This is why Americans are so fat and lazy, take a bus rather than walk half a mile...call CPS if a mom takes her kid for a walk in a stroller.

You made me smile. She didn't take her kid out in the heat on PURPOSE to hurt her. She took her to get some help. If that's how you feel about bringing babies into the heat I should be reported. I purposely go walking with my kids and I even took them to a water park for a few hours. We spend quite a bit of time out in the heat. If provided with shade, sunblock, and water the kids will be fine. Nobody is trying to hurt anybody.....

LMAO. its no different than spending a few hours in a pool. which is what my kids did yesterday and today. its summer, kids everywhere are enjoying the break from school...OUTSIDE. and we're in tx. an hour in a stroller isnt putting her in danger from heat stroke.

youre ridiculous. and dumb. especially the "taking your child into the heat on purpose to hurt them" line. lmfao. go sit down.

I didn't put my daughter out into the heat to hurt her I walked with in the early morning and she was is a stroller with shade. The temp didn't even get into the 90s before we got back home.. When you take children to the beach you are there way longer and in the more prominent heat. Little shade and not all parents bring juice and snacks.. I was not making the wrong choice by taking my daughter to te doctors the only way I had. For all these people trying to bring me down and call me a bad mother I laugh.. Dcf wouldn't do a think and would look at the person who reported me like WTF?

It was a check up app with her lung specialist and we wanted to talk about her sleep apnema.. Yes we did find out that her reflux is getting worse and will most likely need surgery to help close the top of her stomach so that she is no longer in pain and will eat better. But she is doing well
