i have 4 kids, with 3 dads....all the kids live with me, and all the dads are around....so heres how it goes
my oldest goes to her dads every other weekend. on one of the other weekends, she goes to her (ex) step dads. PLUS she has visits with meme and pepe a couple nights a month, PLUS she has school....we cut out dance this year since her grades started to drop last year. when i told her she was going to memes for the nite, she asked "where do i go after that" (shes 7.5) it almost broke my heart that my poor girl doesnt know anything other then bouncing around!! AND she told me i cant get married (again) because she doesnt need another dad. however since then we have explained it to her, and now she would be ok with it, "in a few years if im happy"
the 2 middle boys are with my (ALMOST) ex hubby. he has them 2 weekends a month at his gfs house with her 3 kids, and my oldest boy is actualy having trouble sleeping again, and hes so sad when he gets home cuz no one plays with him. i think he just wants time with his dad, but dad doesnt get it!! my 2 yr old is just fine with whatever is thrown at his, but prefers my bf over his own dad. and the baby, well his dad lives with me so no issues there. i guess im half venting, and half looking for advice on how to handle all the kids with bouncing around, and scheduling and such. thanks ladies! glad i was invited to this, it may be a life saver!!
