    I know... slightly off topic but have you enquired about Family Daycare? I live on the Gold Coast and our YMCA FDC has about 75 spots for 'shiftworkers' ie nighttime / overnight / weekend.

    I hate just having to ask people. I have to go to a 4 day uni conference (away from home for 3 nights); noone was available to look after DS until I went to take a leave of absence from the course & my mum agreed to take him. The financial cost is going to be huge by the time I factor in accommodation & transport.

    Same sort of vent here - my work just sent an email around this week saying we are having a conference in Sydney for 3 days in early June. Everyone else was like and I was what am I going to do with DD?? I hate it that they assume that if you have kids you have someone there to take over at the drop of a hat...

    I hate that now DD may have aspergers (in the process of being tested) he is completely ignoring us both and refusing to come to the specialist appointments so we're on the same page.

    And I really hate that as a result of his actions DD ha lost her extended family including her grandma who she has been extremely close to since birth.

    Seeing my DD hurt so much is killing me inside :'(

    Finally got it out!
    It must be tough doing things alone especially if your child has a disability. At times like this you need both parents involved. Im hoping there are other factors involved... That your kid isn't missing out on her father primarily because the parents couldn't agree on a routine... You need all the help you can get even if every battle doesn't go your way.

    to you all.

    Right now - I hate that I am always nice and understanding. I want to be the difficult one for a change.

    For you lady's that have to travel maybe find out if you live close or if a mum near you is in a similar situation and maybe you could help each other out? When you go away they can look after your kids and you can do the same for them

    I hate that my ex still controls me and makes my life difficult after all this time. I didn't realise it would be like this

    I hate that for years I begged my ex to spend time with the kids to no avail. Yet when I had enough and left, suddenly he refuses to let me move an hour away, takes me to court and then has the audacity to ask me to give him the kids full time and I be the one that sees them every second weekend.

    I wish he would stop being so selfish and think of what's in the kids' best interests. my eldest tells me that he sees more of daddy now than when we lived with him. How could it possibly be in their best interests for them to live with a father they barely saw and be put in full time day care while he works instead of at home with me?

    Please please wake up and realize you're hurting the kids you apparently care so much about.

    Unfortunately no other factors, he has always had the attitude it's his way or no way at all and now that that isn't working for DD and she is having meltdowns after each visit he would would rather not see her at all then discuss a plan we both follow
