I completely understand!!! My son's father only comes around when it's convienent for him... financially and emotionally. He went from January to the end of July this year without even calling our 5 year old!!!! It was heartbreaking to hear my son ask why his daddy didn't love him enough to call or see him..... his dad's excuse was "LIFE GOT HARD SORRY" --- he couldn't understand why I didn't accept that as an answer because as you well know.... just because one parent can't be there for the child physically or finanacially... it doesn't eliminate the problem! The other parent ( YOU and I) have to pick up their slack and find a way to give our child whatever it is they need. It's just what a responsible parent does.... babysitting is a part- time job....PARENTING isn't. Unfortunately, besides taking him to court for child support..... there isn't much you can do about him not helping.... EXCEPT move on if he won't work on it with you. You and your beautiful baby deserve someone in your lives that genuinely want to be there!!!!
