Are exes phone calls invasive?
My wifes ex husband and father of her kids calls her every night he knows Im off work wanting to "talk to his kids" and say goodnight. Normally I would find this great that he cares enough about his kids to call them but here's the kicker: He sees his kids 2-3 hours a week MAX and he lives 5 minutes away! Also the only time he seems interested in spending time with his kids is if he can pick them up and drop them off at our place when Im at work and my wife is there. He never obeys the court order which states he's supposed to have the kids every second weekend, ALL WEEKEND and the entire day wednesday. My wife makes excuses for his lack of parenting by saying he works a lot, has a small apartment etc. He's off every weekend. Its all an excuse. So basically we have the kids all the time and he seems happy letting her and me raise them. I find his lack of parenting irritating. I find his invasive phone calls irritating. If he thinks thats what it takes to be a dad he's delusional. We get no breaks form the kids and have no alone time and his phone calls to "speak to his kids" when he knows Im off work and spending time with them and my wife are invasive. Ive encouraged my Stepkids to call their dad whenever they want. They know how to use the phone. They dont ever seem interested which says a lot. Also half the time he calls the kids never want to speak to him. We hand the phone to them and literally tell them to talk to him and they seem annoyed by him calling to say goodnight. Im here to vent. Anyone else find this invasive?
