Do you send clothes for weekends?

Here's why I ask.  My BD and I were never together from the time she was born.  When she was a baby/toddler I sent everything she would need while she visited dad (kind of like you would do for someone who was babysitting.)  She is now five.  BD is married(they are both lawyers) and Elena has a room of her own.  I am tired of sending clothes and not having them return, or else having her bag return untouched.  Do you send clothes, etc when your child goes visiting?

I send my son with everything down to a wash cloth and towel.. and a traveling bag with hygeine products.. I don't play around with that, I know how people talk and they will never say she just dropped him off with nothing.. That is just showing him that with or without you I got this..

If theres clothes there that you've sent with her before expecting them back then don't send anymore because eventually you'll run out of clothes and heck,clothes for kids arn't cheap

Asking him if he needs clothes for her, would be civil. If he's a lawyer, he'd probably try to say you aren't or can't take care of her or provide for her. That's how some people just operate. It sucks, but that's how they are. If he says no, have him or you can draw up a agreement so it's on paper. If he says he needs clothes for her, write down a list of what you sent & have him sign it or something. Put a special tag or initial the tags in her clothes. You can have that written in a agreement also, that she is to be sent back to you with EVERYTHING you sent her with. This way, if he doesn't comply, it would be considered Contempt of court. My ex & I been there done that. I finally had it written up because he tried to use that against me in court.

I use to even send my kids with food to my surprise when my BD took me to court for visitation he told the judge I send them dirty and so on lucky for me I had letters from the school , friends , nieghbors , baby sitters and their pedi. The juge looked at me and said miss your to send NOTHING makes sure the kids have on coats if its cold and are dresses cool if its hot. Take the boys downstairs when he arrives watch them walk down the stairs do not let him in your house past the initial entry way send NOTHING. And that's what I do I don't send a pull up a wipe NOTHING and when he asks I gently remind him "the judge said send NOTHING its in the court order and on transcript you did this to yourself GOOD BYE kindly leave my property SUCKER!!!!
