So my boyfriend... or my child's father. Hmmm where do I even start? Basically he LOVES his child. I live at home with my parents, and he doesn't have a car so I normally have to go and pick him up to see the baby and then take him back home. He can never take the baby (triston) over to where he lives because he lives with his aunt, and I wouldn't feel safe leaving my kid over there. I know he loves Triston, when he comes over he changes his diaper, feeds him, holds him the whole time. But I can't stand the guy. He doesn't have a job, doesn't have a car, doesn't have a GED, doesn't have a driver's license- he hasn't even had the opportunity to sign the boys birth certificate yet. I thought once the baby arrived there'd be this huge sense of urgency for him to get his life together and for him to get us an apartment so we could be a family, and he's accomplished absolutely NOTHING!!! So I bought him a bus ticket to Kentucky (we live in Michigan) so he could be with his mom and sisters and figure out some legal problems he had down there. Part of me misses the occasional help I used to get from him, but part of me see's this as the time to finally get rid of his ass! I don't want to be that bitch who doesn't let the father see their son... but he's never even bought this child formula or diapers! Hell he can't even take care of himself! I'm hopefully getting my own apartment next month so he wouldn't know where I am if I move. Is it wrong for me to block his numbers and his sisters numbers out of my phone and try to "X" him out of my life? I'm scared if he doesn't he'll come back to Michigan and end up living with me because he "has no place to go" and thinks it's better for our kid. Obviously you guys can see I pretty much already know what I want to do... but I still like to hear other people's opinions and it's nice to know I can meet people who sympathize with my deadbeat situation!
