    What To Do...

    He has 3 kids (all school aged) from his first marriage, so I understand that communication w/ his ex-wife, is a big necessity right now. What bugs me is, the fact that she calls and texts him w/ random things that have nothing to do w/ the kids. Which wouldn't bug me as much, if...
