Will I ever be rid of him? I went to drop the kids off at his house and asked him for his half of the cost of new skates for Eli. And he says that he's broke and doesn't have it. Well the skates were essential because Eli grew 2 inches since last season and his foot grew one size - so what am I supposed to do? Make him wear skates that kill his feet?No - I'm the good mom and I buy the skates, thinking jerko will pay half.I wish I could do this without any support from him - because it would be sooooooooooooo much easier than trying to get stuff from him - money, showing up at the kids' school stuff - everything!! I am tired.
