I posted this in the Dad's chat aswell but thought I might get more advice here.
First post but have read a lot of info on this forum previously.
I am a separated Father of two, boy 9 and girl 7, who I have week on, week off. I wish I could have them more but this is better than nothing.
I am on here for advice and to see if I am thinking to much of this. My ex has the kids every second week and when she does she sometimes has work commitments or other things and always has the kids looked after by either her partner, her parents or her friends. Now my complaint is I am always home at night and readily available to look after the kids, even if it's just for the night. I am able to pick them up and drop them to school the next day or back to her.
My son had a soccer clinic last week for three days and I wasn't informed about it but I would've taken him to it had I been informed yet because she couldn't she arranged someone else. The kids came back to my house on Sunday and my ex advised me that my daughter had been in hospital Wednesday night. I didn't get a phone call or text nothing telling me this at the time.
I feel as though I am just their dad the week I have them.
I have spoken to her about this about a month ago and nothing has changed.
Am I looking at this wrong or is what I am asking unfair at all? I am a good father who works full time and makes sure that they have what they need. I have always approached my ex first if I have plans in the future and if it coincides with a night I have the kids.
Please any advice would be great.
