I call dd's dad to check on her? He has had her over night since Friday I miss my baby and haven't seen her since she left. I try not to call because him and his wife get pissed if I do.

He has her until tomorrow night at 6p. He's never kept her for 4 days in a row like this. I understand this is his holiday but I just want to hear from my baby.

Not always true. In our state it's a generic clause in all parenting plans, it's automatic unless you can show excessive contact or calling at inappropriate times, like middle of the night or something.

I would call her every night to tell her good night.

Yup usually with the specification that the other parent can call once a day to say good night etc. 

Quoting Suzy_Sunshine:

when you are not married to your child's other parent part of the deal is that you spend time apart 

Quoting fullxbusymom:

I would call too no way could I go that long not speaking to one of my 7 children.  I have a 17yr old and in 17yrs I have never gone 4 days in a row without not speaking to him. 

Quoting Suzy_Sunshine:

You know that she is fine.

You're entitled to that opinion however my world and time with my children are not going to be interrupted for nightly check ins. If we are out or watching a movie or playing a game...etc. That is MY time. I would afford you the same respect. I'm not talking about the occasional call when the child is gone for a longer time or under a special circumstance. In general, however, it would not happen daily.

Quoting PinkButterfly66:

That's just silly.

Well glad you get to see your little girl even earlier than you thought even though you didn't get to talk to her tonight. 

Quoting Anonymous: Just talked to her dad he said she's asleep

Pink I won't call every night her dad deserves time with her too. we have a co but things are left out so we can work them out like phone calls.


I don't call or text when he has her this is the first time I've ever been away from her for 4 days I'm used to her being home at 6p Sunday lol. I'm not used to it being so quiet unless she's asleep.

I am talking from my standpoint obviously. It would in fact take a judge ordering it before I would allow it.

I wasn't questioning you. I understand the desire on extended visits and special occasions.

Way to use your children as pawns.  Did it ever f*cking occur to you that the child would actually want to tell his/her other parent good night?  You destroyed your kids lives by ripping away their dad from their home and the very least you could do is to swallow some of that hate and realize that those kids still have a dad and deserve to have some continuity of normalcy in their lives and if that means nightly calls to say good night then be the bigger person and let it happen.  I don't care what caused the divorce and neither should the kids. Don't use them as pawns.

If you're raising a child together, you should be able to act like an adult and not need to run to a judge for petty things.
