So while cleaning out my parents house we found a printer that works with a Mac, it even has to software with it. All it needs is ink. It fit the previously assumed criteria. Assume because that is what he told me. So I, as a mother who wants my children to excel in school thought perfect! Just what I need.
I told my ex-husband I had a printer for the kids all he needed to do is buy ink. You would have
I remind him that it is for the kids and if the printer is to be at his house with the computer he really should be the one to buy the ink as I will not be using it and it is not at my house. He wanted custodial custody of the kids! He wanted to keep them in the same school district. I agreed. It made sense. He really just wants the control and he keeps it this way. The more control I take the more unreasonable he is.
His argument now is 1. Ink cost too much, yes it is costly but it is necessary. 2. Other parents of children in the district either don't have a computer or don't have a printer. (So what, other parents in the district are not me and their children are not my children.) 3. His mother has to get a new printer every couple years. Yes, it happens and they cost much less than the new computer you just got when the old one worked. It just wasn't pretty anymore and needed a memory cleaning.
So I'm bringing the printer in, I'm connecting it to the computer. I'll buy the ink but I will hold onto the power cord. If I am buying the ink for the kids to use I will be the one who controls who prints. He will not be printing out his book in progress on the contraband printer that I am bringing in so our children can do homework at home. I know what a concept!
