So my daughter hasn't talked to her dad in a month and hasn't seen him in over 2 years. He calls today and talks to her, then gets on the phone with me and says he is coming out here and will be here Wednesday. I don't even know what to think. I halfway doubt he will show up because he has said this many times, but this time he forwarded me his itinerary. I don't even know what the hell!?

My Dad is also pretty useless. Went 2 1/2 years without seeing him and in the end, he only showed because my Gran dragged him round. If he shows up, then great, but if not, be prepared with cuddles for your DD. At least she has a Mum who loves her. Good luck with it all!

Thanks...Luckily he hasn't told her because I always told him to never tell her anything like that because if plans fall through she will be crushed. So if he shows it will be a complete surprise to her.

I would have him not come over and disrupt your daughters life. My ex has been gone for years and I'll be damned if he is going to interrupt Lilys life.

That is how I feel! We have done perfectly fine without him in the picture. I just don't know what to say. I know my daughter would LOVE to see him.

I think if your DD gets to see her daddy again, after he's gone she'll ask for him... it will then make your life miserable!! That's just what I'm thinking... it's all up to you to make the decision.
