Need to rant
« on: June 19, 2016, 10:46:12 PM »
My controlling ex drives me insane! I'm taking our 2 year old daughter on the new forest camp next week which is our first SWK holiday.
He had the cheek to lecture me about being careful and keeping and eye on her. Told me to make sure I look after her. Apparently a lot of weirdos go camping! Lol!

I can't believe he felt the need to say any of that to me, I'm fuming and a it's so insulting. I'm going to be paranoid now every time she falls over. It's such a joke! She's with me 24/7, he has her once a week max for about 7 hours. I'm the one that takes time off work for appointments, he doesn't even ask how they've gone

Actually it just confirms he is still controlling, he would never have let me go on my own had we still been together.  :)

That's what ex types do.

Have to say my life improved immensely when I learnt to ignore all but essential comms directly relating to contact/access.

The five page emails became less frequent, the 400 word texts dropped out ... they'd come in and I would reply "ok, see you at 7" or whatever was the essential element.

True to say they got worse before they got better but it's peaceful now.

Take lots of photos ... ex types like photos :)

See you on Friday.

You and your daughter will have a great time - the New Forest camp is one of the most magical locations and you'll both make friends.

As you've sussed he's just upset that you're having a life without him  ;D
Sometimes when you give up on someone, its not because you don't care but because you realise that they don't.

Thank you. I do try to ignore it but it's hard as find it really insulting. How dare he think I wouldn't look after her properly, I've been doing it without him since she was a baby.
What's more ridiculous is that I'm a qualified nanny and have have been looking after kids for 20 years. Not once has a parent told me to be really careful when I take their kids out. They trust me and also understand kids will be kids and have the odd accident.
I won't wrap her in cotton wool, whatever he says. I love kids being adventurous, exploring and climbing trees and will actively encourage her to do it.

Really hoping both myself and my daughter make lots of new friends
