As long as he isn't abusive then...i think it is AWESOME you guys are friendly toward one another. The rest of your family can eat beans ;) I grew up in a divorced home and I wish my parents were like you guys. But, they aren't and they continue to make my life miserable (and I am pushing 30 yrs old!). I had to have seperate baby showers, birthdays, christmas parties, ect because they coudlnt grow up. Good luck on the surgery.

He sounds like a good man. I would tell them to just deal with it.. you got it handled. Its obvious he loves his child enough to take care of his childs mother when no one else will step up.. I give him great points for that and I hope you recover soon mama :)

if he is the only person able to take you...ignore what everyone else is saying. At least your able to be civil and have the possiblity of being friends with him. Is there a particular reason they are aganist you guys being friends?

thats exactly why i want to be friends....we have  has a really bad past and there was emotional abuse on both our ends but we are trying to get past that so we can be friends for the children....but it will be hard because he lives in western oregon and i live in eastern oregon but we talk on the phone all the time and text all day long sometimes...so im hoping that we will be able to be friends. i think that the surgery will be the test.

Focus on what you need to get ready such as your kids stuff,clothes,toys etc. If he is the only one able to help you then take the help. Who better then your ex to help you. If you trust him and feel comfortable with him helping you. Stop worrying about everyone's comments. The relationship between you and your ex is your business nobody else.

Good luck

because i was young and dumb and would tell me parents about our fights and only abotu what he did and not what i did so they ended up hating him.....

so why is it family is pissed when you cant get along with your ex and then apparently pissed if you can be adult enough to get along?  i say good for you guys that you can put aside your differences and he can help you out.
