I have posted recently about struggling financially. My ex works, but works sporadically, and just got evicted. He asked to live with me a few times, but I've said no. My daughter (5) has been really taking the divorce hard. She gives me a tough time every day - tantrums, disrespect, whining, crying, complaining - very defiant. This morning she slapped my face, told me she doesn't like me anymore, and wants mommy and daddy to live together again.
I know it could be the "crazy" and panic in me talking, but do I allow him to stay with me until he finds a place? Will that ease my daughter's distress? Or would it just be more confusing? I don't want to get back together with him. I have no love left for him and have no desire to be with him. I just don't know what to do. I want my kids to be ok, and if I have to live with my ex to make that happen, I'm willing to do it. Plus, living with me might be beneficial financially - he'll get back on his feet faster (hopefully), and I'll start getting the child support money I need to survive. Or am I just being really dumb because I'm upset about my daughter?
