First off, the reason why I divorced was because my ex is a very controlling, negetative person who is very self-centered. He's a hoarder so he wants things he can get today and hesistants to have any goals like home buying because all houses he thinks aren't worth the amount they are going for.
Anyways. He's out of the country at this time and has been for almost a month now. The last three days he's been calling me around 9 am to see about talking to our daughter. He knows she goes to school and it's not that tough to figure out what time it is here while he is in another time zone. I think it's an excuse to just talk to me, though I have no idea why.
He's also texting me and giving me compliments (that's surprising in and of itself as usually he will only give at best backhand compliments or your a good mom but this aspect you suck at. The compliments are sticking to how I am as a mom (now I'm a great mom ... what?!), but it's so strange! He's still ticked off that I divorced him and blames his job for our divorce. I don't really care what he believes to be true.
I wonder if this is another tactic he's taking to try to control me? I don't want anything to do with him outside of our necessary texts about our daughter.
