I am hopping mad. I could kill Alyssa's dad if he had been anywhere near me tonight.
Alyssa has been sick tonight so we are on 48 hours no school. I am going to ring work tomorrow to change my day off from thursday to either tomorrow or wednesday so I can look after her. Thought I would ring her dad and ask him if he could have the other day so if possible I didn't need to have two days off. His answer as you might of quessed was no he could not have any time off.
This is the person who thinks he can just pick and choose when he has her for the holidays, that is two weeks in the summer but when I asked him about feb half term he said no he didn't want her and doesn't think he wants to have any time with her at Easter either.
I then get a text asking if she will be well enough to go to his for tea as usual tomorrow night - I would like to know which planet he is living on. I have said I don't know will depend on if she is still being sick.
Am I being unreasonable here asking him to help out.

If it was me, If he isn't willing to take time off to look after his sick daughter, There is noway I'd let her go for tea tomorrow.
I really hate parents who think they can pick and choose what parts of being a parent they want.
I am sorry hes being a idiot Sally!
I also hope Alyssa feels better soon xx

Totally agree with Emma! If he can't see her through the bad times he deff shouldn't deserve all the good! I'd say no she is still ill and not coming for tea x

Daniel's dad is the same at times Sally. I'm sorry.

You're not being unreasonable and if he won't help out when his daughter needs him then I wouldn't let her go for tea either.

If I wasn't unwell myself this week I'd offer to come over one day. Sorry. I hope you can work something out.

I don't think you are being unreasonable at all Sally. Dave can't just pick and choose when he wants to see Alyssa because it's convenient for him. That's not what being a parent is about. Big sorry he's being so difficult.

He thinks he can pick and choose Lou and he does. The stupid thing is I let him.
Alyssa was fine for both days, no more sickness and she has been back at school. No idea what it was.

It's a hard balance to get, Sally. I give in to Chris against my better judgement on occasion simply because I want to keep things friendly between us for Daniel's sake and for the sake of keeping things out of court.

I hope he is more understanding and willing next time you need help!
