I'm sure some of you remember my story. For those that don't... My girl and I broke up just after Thanksgiving. We were together 3.5 years and have a 21 month old daughter. I wanted to see my daughter on Christmas morning, so I talked her mom into staying until after the holidays. Now that the holidays are over, I'm ready to get on with life and get her out of the house. It's unfortunate that my daughter will be going with her. Before anyone decides to give me their thoughts our lecture me about doing what's right for the kid, save your breath. I'm going to do everything I can for my daughter and be in her life. Sorry if I sound like an asshole, but it seems like people on OT assume and feel the need to get an attitude about this kind of thing. Anyway... So now I have this delimma. I talked to her about when she's moving out. There is a house for sale next door to her mother's and a family friend is buying it to get the land. He plans on renting the place out to my ex and her sister. They're still in negotiating status with the house, so things won't be finalized for at least a month. I DO NOT want to live with her that long. Technically she'll only be there for three weeks and she's going on a cruise for one. That doesn't really matter though. I just don't want her there anymore. She said if I want her out now, she'll move to her mothers this week. Sounds great to me! But my delimma lies with my daughter. If I tell her to move this week, I feel like I'd be kicking my daughter out too. Add to the fact that her mother's house isn't the greatest environment for my daughter to live. They have all wood floors-- only one room is carpeted. They have four dogs-- two labs and two maltese. The dogs are great and would never harm her, but just the fact that they are there. The house isn't exactly baby proofed and my ex made mention of that. I feel that's a bullshit excuse-- the house will have to be baby proofed eventually, especially since her mom will be watching our daughter often very soon. I just don't know what to do here. I want my ex gone ASAP just to get on with my life and into the schedule where I'll see my daughter. I also feel that she's kinda taking advantage of the situation by staying with me and I want her to see exactly how things are going to be from now on. On the other hand, I feel like shit since my daughter will be going to. I have to think about her well being. I know being at her grandmothers for a few weeks isn't going to harm her, but it's a big difference from where she's at now.
