My ex husband is so infuriating! I can't stand sitting by and watching what he is doing to our little girl and not being able to do anything about it!! It has always seemed that he was more excited about her when I was pregnant than her actually being alive. He's in the Army and has always used that as an excuse for not being involved. I understand when he deploys. But when he's home he can pick up a phone and call her or get on webcam to spend some type of time with her! She is four years old and he's been physically present in her life for 7 months. HER WHOLE LIFE...7 months. You could at least make web cam dates! Send her letters! SOMETHING. He came back from Germany last year and ever since he's been taking her every other weekend. The two weeks in between his visits he acts as if she doesn't exist. Now that he's started dating he doesn't even spend those weekends with her he drives down with his girlfriend and lets his father take care of her. I don't know what to do because it's really starting to take a toll on her emotionally. She acts out majorly for his visits and then comes home when he drops her off angry and upset every time! I have tried talking to him about this over and over and he always has an excuse for everything. I wish that he would either realize he's a dad and act like one or get lost and stop hurting my baby girl! Wow it felt good to get that out...
