My kids and I have been so happy and free and safe since their dad moved 2000 miles away! As always, he couldn't hold on to his job, and has found a new one in Durango, which is about 3 hours away in the summertime. I'm thinking this is a bit close for my comfort- he could theoretically hang up the phone and be waiting at my house before the kids and I return from errands! I have full custody, but I've always let him see the kids whenever he wants (about 3 times in the last 2 years), but I know he'll want me to meet him in Ouray (1/2 way), maybe frequently. Also, the youngest (3 1/2) has special needs (he's a full-time job) and his dad prefers to take the older two and leave the 3 year old with me. I think if he's going to take the kids, he should take them all! Imagine having a day or two break with no kids at all- the trouble I could cause!
