So I have a 6 year old daughter, and this is her first christmas with her dad... it is a long story but basically we did not know he was the father ( or I guess I didnt want to believe it ) until she was a few years old, but her and I were living in another state so phone calls were pretty much it... and for christmas he would always just send extra money and sometimes a doll or a necklace or something...
Well my job moved us back here again and he wants to spend Christmas with her.. He is now married and has another little girl ( i think around 2 ) .. It didnt start off the best because of course we argued because I want MY daughter to spend Christmas with me... So his wife said they can just have their christmas on the 27th ... that way she can wake up there to open presents and stuff ...
It bugs me alot that she is trying to make decisions like this... she has no part in MY childs life... I let it slide because I wasnt going to make a scene of that.... but then she tried to add me on facebook... and now she has called me up to ask what sorts of things i am getting my daughter because she is going shopping this week and wants to start buying gifts for MY daughter.. I think that is so rude - to ask ME what I am buying MY child !?!
Plus the fact is... I dont want my daughter thinking christmas is just about the presents ... she has made it very clear that she plans on buying a ton of things ( she said she is planning on buying her daughter alot of things and she wants them to have an even amount of gifts) ....
So not only is my daughter going to have to have a fake christmas with these people she has only known for a couple of months, but she is going to have to pretend to have a sister and "family" with them - is it just me but is this nut trying to hard to make something happen that isnt going to !!!???

I agree with past posters. She is trying to do the right thing. Maybe you should give her a chance.
