Anyone else find this invasive?
My wifes ex whom she shares 2 kids with (my step kids) calls our house on the nights he knows Im off work and at home to say goodnight to his kids. Normally I would think this was a good parent concerned about his kids and expressing love. However the guy sees his kids once a week for a couple of hours, thats it and he lives 5 minutes from us! I know he works a lot but come on. If you're a good dad why dont you take your kids for the weekend like you're supposed too? He is off work there. My wife is always making excuse for the guy, saying his apartment isn't big enough, he's working, blah blah blah. He has no interest in doing so. In fact he has no interest in seeing his kids unless he can come by our house and pick them up when my wife's alone and Im at work. My wife is too easy o the guy. Quite frankly I think he has it way too easy. He seems fine with her and me raising his kids for him. But for some reason he finds is necessary to call the house to say goodnight to his kids on the nights Im off work when he knows Im home with them and her. When he calls one of us will hand the kids the phone. I don't say anything. Sometimes the kids don't even want to talk to him which says a lot about the relationship he has with them. Ive encouraged them to call their dad whenever they want so maybe he's stopped calling at odd times but the kids don't seem interested. They both are capable of using the phone. But neither of them want to so he keeps calling on on the nights he knows Im there and not working. Im here to vent. Nothing else. I just think if he's a good father he have more interest in his kids otherwise. I find the calling the house on my days off invasive amongst other things he does. If they were my bio kids Id be spending more time with them too. He never goes to school events, doctors appointments, he doesnt pay for their health insurance, buy them clothes., nothing. He sees them two hours a week if he can come by and pick them up while Im at work so he can chit chat with my wife. So weird. Anyone else find this odd?
