My children's father promised them that they could stay the weekend with him, so as soon as we got home, they packed their bags and waited and waited and called and called........he never showed, didn't call and would not pick up the phone when they called. So naturally they started crying because their little hearts were broke because their daddy lied. That's what happened tonight, but it always happens. He always makes promises and lies all the time to them. Now my children are 5 and 8 and he is 43, so there is no excuse for his behavior. I guess I just don't know what to tell them, for years I just said "maybe he's sick or something" but I'm tired of making excuses for him. Then when he gets in the mood to see them, he just pops up at the house and wants to "play" with them, come on grow up. Anyhow, I am just so disappointed and it breaks my heart to see my children hurt. What do I do? What do I say? I am at my wits in with this guy; I've tried and tried to get him to see the wrong in what he's doing, but he's going to keep doing this. He just tells them little white lies all the time to keep them happy. I cannot stand it. I never promise my children something and don't do it. I just cannot stand that this grown man (suppose to be) hurts these kids mentally; over and over again. Now, when he's around he is good to them but so what? They don't need a part-time daddy that just comes around when HE feels like it. How do I handle this and what do I tell my children?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
