My ex sent me a text saying he went and got my daughter's haircut. She is 8. This haircut is not for a child her age and to top it off he never even consulted with me. How hard is it to coparent?

It might not have been the best for him to just get it cut without consulting, but it looks like your DD likes it. That will be an interesting grow out.

I would be mad too but she seems to like it. It's actually really cute.

 We saw a young girl in Super Cuts a few weeks ago that picked out this same haircut.  I think it is cute.  If your daughter is happy, what is the problem?

Yes she is happy, my only problem is the fact that it was a drastic haircut from what she had. The least he could have done is consult me and include me In on the decision. We are supposed to be working on coparenting which I thought mean keep each other informed and included in decisions. When I see her tomorrow morning I will have a big smile on my face and tell her how much I love it.

 Gotcha   I guess I would be upset too.  But sometimes it is better to not let your anger get too out of control.

It is not worthy to take it to a judge or make an issue of it beyond the two of you. With the small stuff, you can anger the judge if you do it over every little thing besides it costing you money and not getting anywhere. The money is better off saved or spent elsewhere along with the time used for court is better off used as a fun vacation day for the entire family.

Something like this taking it to court never even crossed my mind, this was just more of a vent. I have always gave him the respect of including him in any decisions regarding our kids.

I would be mad too. But it does look like she's very happy with it. I'm sure you'll do a wonderful job of hiding your feelings about it for your daughter's sake.

First your daughter is adorable. Second, yes, I would strangle him. My ex told me he was going to get the kids haircut last week and asked how I wanted dd's done. I told him that it was her hair and she could choose how to have it done, she'll be 10 in September. They took 2 inches off, that's cool, but then they also thinned it? WTF? My daughter has gorgeous, long, beautiful hair. I'm not sure how they 'thinned' it which I'm not too happy about, but oh well.
