My ex-Wife dropped my daughter off early yesterday and just said (to my daughter), "I'll see you when your father drops you off."
I was blindsided, but delighted, that my daughter was over early, as I hadn't seen her during my ex's uninterrupted two weeks during the summer.
After four hours (the normal length of my parenting time for non-overnight visits) my ex started texting me, asking where I was and telling me I was past our 15-minute rule. She threatened to call the police and have me found in contempt of court for keeping my daughter past my parenting time hours.
She claims that she said (to my daughter), "I'll see you when your father drops you off at 4." My brother was very close by and neither of us heard her say a time. I just assumed it was extra parenting time, since I hadn't seen her in two weeks.
Because she scheduled her summer weeks the way she did, she was scheduled to have my daughter for 5 weeks in a row without any overnight visits to my house. She and I had talked about this and she agreed to let my have my daughter this upcoming weekend. My girlfriend overheard this conversation.
When I dropped my daughter off at the end of my normal parenting time, she was taking pictures and then told me that I couldn't have this upcoming weekend with my daughter. She said, "That's what you get for not honoring a verbal agreement." There was no verbal agreement. Even if she had told my daughter that she'd see her at 4, it wouldn't be valid because she didn't say it to me.
I'm really upset because I have rented a campsite and had told my daughter that we'd be camping this weekend. I don't know what to do or what to say to my daughter when she asks about the camping trip.
My girlfriend and I think that she orchestrated the fiasco, yesterday, so she could take back this upcoming weekend (she's that type of person).
This kinda crap happens all the time. She'll wake up at the start of my parenting time (in the morning [I work nights]) and THEN get my daughter ready. She's completely forgotten about my parenting time before. She harasses me when I pick up my daughter (she does this while my daughter is getting ready and I can't leave or she'll claim that I gave up my parenting time). The list goes on and on.
Can someone give me some advice or constructive criticism?
Am I being ridiculous or overly sensitive?
Thanks in advance
