Wow. Does he think any judge in his right mind would give him sole custody with a track record like that?

My ex is actually very involved with the girls (also have a 5 year old) - attends conferences, takes them to gymnastics (won't pay for it of course), etc. He wants to be "fun dad". It has always been this way, even when we were together. Fun dad takes the girls swimming. Fun dad takes them to the park. What they are too young to realize is that fun dad believes the measly amount he pays for child support should cover all of their clothes, extracurricular, school lunches, school fees, etc. They also don't understand it is not ok to simply not show up for doctor's appointments (I scheduled - he said he would follow through), it is not ok to blow off piano lessons (same story).

Here's something really interesting - all of our family is a good 3 hours away. Last Thanksgiving I brought the girls back for the holiday with my family and then I brought them to HIS mother's for an overnight with them. Now he is saying he wants to take them on vacation (last vacation meant staying at home) December 21-27. Oh right - like I'm going to forego Xmas with my kids. And they should forego Xmas with family? !!!!!! My youngest's birthday was in June. Who came to the party? My family, my fiancee's family and my ex's mother. Of course, I invited her. She didn't even see her son when she was here. I doubt he even realized she was in town.
