I don't know if I'm in the right place but hopefully someone will have an idea.
My daughters dad takes her for dinner Wednesdays after school and has her one day on the weekend to stay over, normally a Friday. This is fine, it works for us. However, he keeps making excuses, not constantly, but last week he didn't see her at all. Apparently he left his phone on a job on Wednesday and because he didn't hear from me didn't pick her up Friday and said he was sick (if he's sick as much as he says he is he should be seeing a doctor!)
Now I've been quite flexible with him changing days etc. which I'm ok with, he's self employed, things happen. Not a problem. But my daughter was in tears about how she missed her dad last week. She's normally a tough kid and was probably tired from going back to school but I really wanted to kill him!!
Aibu to think he should have either turned up Wednesday anyway or asked to have her Thursday when he got his phone back (supposedly)? I'm not having her upset and would rather not have to go through court and have visitation orders but really what are my options here?
I guess I'm just needing a rant but I'm really quite annoyed about the situation. It's not the first time it happened and I'm far from unreasonable with him.
