Re: Chronicles of the Good Guy
What to do about Christmas? D7 will be with me the first part of the day, then with her mom the second part. Ex is extremely cash strapped (her own doing, I take no responsibility for her poor choices), but will probably have zero money to buy her children anything. That's ok, I've got gifts for D7 and even one for my 14yo stepson covered. However my daughter wants to get something for her mom for Christmas. I'm all for her having a relationship with her mom and being able to enjoy Christmas with her mom. Initially I told her she could make something for her mom, but she says it's not the same. I want to teach her that everything in life is not about money, but at the same time she wants to be able to buy her mom something. We used to do this together of course, the kids would go with one parent to pick out a gift for the other, then vice versa. I'm not completely cold blooded, but it feels weird to hand my daughter money for a gift for this person who ripped our family apart. I guess I'm torn in this first Christmas as a divorced dad. What have you others done in the past?
