Is this odd??

 I am a full time nursing student and I have child care for my DD.  The lady who watches her will tell me in advance if she needs a day off.  She asked for a week off in April.  I CAN"T miss class.  I asked my ex today if he minded if I called his ex wife to watch our DD as a back up.  I don't know anyone in town, and while I don't necessarily appreciate the way she raises her kids, I know they are well cared for.  He said that was fine, so I called her and she agreed.  How weird is this situation??

 i guess it is a little weird, but you have to do what you have to do and all that matters is she is well taken care of. i think it is great that you are able to have that help

 Weird? Then why would you ask her to watch them?.  I hate it when my ex tells me can his wife watch our kids.  While I don't appreciate her attitude, I don't have any choice in the matter - I do know he's against court orders though.

I'm glad you found someone I know how stressful child care can be

Seems a little weird, but I am guessing your DD knows her so as long as you are comfortable with her there, it's all good!

As long as your daughter is well cared for and you are comfortable with the person watching her, who cares if its weird or not?

I wouldn't get my ex's wife to watch my son.  But, if your daughter is comfortable with her, I don't see a problem with it.
