Do I let it go & realize he just doesn't want to step up & be a dad? UPDATE
It really frustrates me when my ex doesn't take the kids on his days off. Our divorce papers say this about parenting time:
Father shall have reasonable parenting time with the minor children of the parties at a minimum pursuant to the attached Standard Parenting Time Schedule, except reasonable accommodations for the father's work schedule. Unless specified otherwise in the attached Standard Parenting Time Schedule, the Schedules, Rules and Required Notices of Franklin County's Local Standard Parenting Time Schedule control. Additional parenting time may occur as the parties agree.
He works fast food & his boss makes the manager schedules up at least a month at a time. Well as of yesterday he had not given me his schedule since the beginning of May (which went through the end of June). So today he emails his schedule to me & I see that he had the 2nd & 3rd off. Yet he didn't take the kids.
Should I just do as the title of my post says? I am keeping a copy of his schedules on my computer & keeping a journal as to if he contacts the kids or takes them, etc. Not that I have a clue as to what good that will do me!
Thank you to all who replied! I have started keeping not only a journal but also a calendar of his schedule. He emails me his schedule which is usually 6-8 weeks at a time & I print them off. I also have a blank calendar that I printed off several copies of & will be writing his whole schedule down on it. I am going to color code it & just make a small dot on each day- pink means no contact, orange means I contacted him (whether it be via email, text, or phone call), green means he contacted me (via text, email, or phone), & purple means he contacted one of the kids or they contacted him. The journal will be for notes as to why I contacted him or why he contacted me.
Does this sound like something that could work?
