On Monday night's episode Gary's wife, Kristina, offered for Amber and her second baby daddy, Andrew Glennon, to have a night off to themselves and she can babysit baby James. How sweet? She also asked if Amber would be interested in doing a "girls day" with her and Leah to get a manicure and pedicure. Again, how sweet?!

"I never get to see my daughter barely and now that I am you guys have the audacity to complain about me wanting to do something like parasailing with her? It's something she can remember and cherish and you all are turning it into a pitty party when no one even cared! @krissyK01," Amber tweeted.

Gary also defended his decision with Kristina to babysit for Amber! "Every parent deserves a break. @krissyK01 offered 2 watch james 2 give @AmberLPortwood some much deserved rest. That’s perfectly fine. We don’t have a whole lot of people to lean on so we have each other we do our best for @leah_leann, Emilee, & james. We are a unique family," he tweeted.
