Just ranting here, skip this if you don't want to hear negativity about my ex.
So my ex-husband that never seems interested in his daughters life calls me to chastise me this evening because I didn't tell him she has the flu. If I thought it was super serious, I would have made the call but to be completely honest he never even crossed my mind. Why would he when he never shows an interest in her?
And he seems more upset because we didn't call him to tell him about picture day. I did tell Jennifer that she should call him but even she made it sound like he wouldn't be interested so she didn't want to waste the time.
He never sees her except maybe once or twice a year. He's so caught up in his own little world that he doesn't make the time for Jennifer unless it's by his rules. He never takes the time to just see Jennifer...all his other brats have to tag along and she's not real fond of them. I just don't get it.
He said that he calls her but how am I to know that when he doesn't communicate with me? I don't ask Jennifer everyday if she's talked to him. I do suggest on occasion that she call him or try to see him but she's never interested and I take it as her feeling she doesn't really feel wanted or needed by him.
I had to force him to pay child support through the courts because he quit paying. Then one year when I called him to help pay for her to have teeth removed (for braces) he asked what I was doing with the child support!!! Apparently he forgot that he's supposed to also pay 1/2 of her medical bills which he fails to do. So I JUST had the thought...if he's going to be so "interested" in how she's doing then he's going to pay his share from this point forward.
I told him if he's interested in her life then he needs to call me but he won't. I wasn't thinking about him when Jennifer got the flu because I was scared to death that I was going to catch it and I don't want to do anything to jeopardize this pregnancy; I've waited way too long for it.
