I need to vent because my resentment and bitterness is building and I've become such an ugly person. I love my boyfriend and his two kids and i have two kids as well.
He and his ex have an unofficial parenting plan. He is training for a new career that requires him to work on weekends from time to time. I work full time and i have a really good arrangement with my ex husband.
My issue is ex-wife. At first she was very easy to handle but now that she's in her own relationship with a man from another area, things have changed. She keeps the kids during the week even though we are down the road to help but on the weekends she wants off and be with her new bf. I understand the peril and challenges of dating and everyone needs to move on.. But i want a break on some weekends as well. It angers me that she takes off every weekend to be with the new guy in here life which is quite often in the year or so I've known her. Now she's talking about moving to another city and it's starting to stress my bf. Last weekend their son was almost hit by a car under my care and if this would have been a true emergency, my bf is at work in a non cell phone facility and she's miles away. Everyone here works full time including me. I would love just a weekend day off to also have quality time with my bf. He is stuck in the middle and and we've been fighting over this i know this is is his problem to solve but in the meantime I'm affected.. This is the only thing we fight about. I love him pieces but I'm overwhelmed sometimes watching 4 kids at the same time. Please lend some advice.
