I have an 8-year-old daughter who has over 100 stuffed animals. Obviously, more than she could possibly play with. I have put them in bags for the past year, and the ones she has missed I have dug back out; but the others we are planning to give to needy children for Christmas (because they're nice and in good condition).
The majority of the stuffed animals that are going have been from me, grandparents or other friends. However, some of them may have come from her father (we are no longer together).
I wrote him to let him know that we were going to be at the mall tomorrow to drop off stuffed animals that she no longer plays with to a woman collecting for needy children.
His reply was that he would please like me to give any that he gave to her back to him, so that he can give them to children at his work.
I'm left scratching my head
and befuddled at his response. What is your opinion? Do you think that my ex-husband is out of line or appropriate? Either which way - please explain why you feel the way you do.
