My XH & I have split custody of our 2 kids; I have them Tues-Sat morn. He's been pushing to get them Sun eve-Fri eve so they can go to school near him (he's about 45 min away and admittedly in a better school district)...so much so that he's filed for legal custody change. I've been SO against it because I can't imagine only having my babies on the weekends. Unfortunately, I've been a mess getting my daughter into a school bcuz of a move so I just found out school starts in a week (I have nothing for school!!), and preK for my son is WAY too expensive here...I'm beginning to think I should agree w my X. He's offering to pay for everything; clothes, supplies, gymnastics, soccer...I just fear he'll use it against me in the future to say he's paid for everything. I'm very torn w what to do...any suggestions from you mamas?Answer Question

I agree that you should fight. I know how you want the best education for your kids, but you know you will not be happy with just two days a week. If you have problems, call the schools and let them know what is going on. Tell them you have not had the time or the finances to get the supplies and the school's resource center should be able to help. As far a preschool, if you don't make enough money, you should be able to get a scholarship or even get him in there for free. I would talk to the school board and see if there is anything can be done. Good luck.
