That will be excellent for you. Don't feel guilty if you stay an hour later to study coz he doesn't seem the type to watch LO while you do that at home.

Ohh poor lil girl :(
Fuck that for a joke. I say you tell him to do what you do for a week while you're at school, and then tell you that because he's the one working you should do everything. they have no fucking idea. If you can get up here (I still say take the car, he can live without it. H town is tiny) you're more than welcome to stay :D
He's too tired to look after his daughter and now he's drinking on a wednesday night with his mates. Father of the year, people. Tbh he doesn't sound very interested in either you or L :(

Well I did one paper the semester just been, and only just passed because when I needed to study he would not help with LO, he would put her in her room with some toys, then jut leave her so she would get upset and id have to go fix her, meaning I got next to no study done

And you shouldn't have to just because K is a douche.



You're doing coffee groups and stuff down there aye? Is there anyone you can hang out with during the day? Friend-wise? It helps a tonne when you have adult conversation. And LO's sometimes behave better when there are other people around.

She can still do a night feed and a morning and night feed and still feed normally during the week. Her skipping one fees during the day one day a week so mum can do stuff wont hurt and I think the benefit she'll gain from gaining some independence will be worth it, and then dd also wins by getting time with dad.

All the coffee groups stopped for xmas new year, and when they start back up LO will be too big and will have to move to the older ones, which means a whole new set of people, and with my study timetable I dont know if we will be able to keep going :(

He walks to work anyways, but we live by the hospital so everything takes ages to walk to, which would be fine except LO will be happy in her stroller an hour max before she has had enough, and I dont blame her. Not to mention how are we going to get groceries etc?! He just doesnt think about these things.
