In 8 years I've bagged out ex twice and after it I felt really really bad!
Usually I'm always making excuses of why dd can't see him but after a while I get sick of defending him! I agree you shouldn't do it as that is her dad but sometimes all the 'why can't I see him' ' why isn't he here' 'why can't I go there ' why doesn't he love me' gets a little to much! She had him every day for years and now it's once a week for a few hours, it's hard! Especially when she's telling me she hates me and wants to live with him.
