this year he had thanksgiving and i get Christmas. this is our first year doing this. i had to ask him today what his plan were about picking them up he implied that he was going to be here on Christmas evening....i told him NO u had thanks giving this year thats not fair christmas is mine this year. so he now wants to pick them up at 3 am the night after christmas (he lives out of state) so he can try to fly stand by with the kids. he said the best flight leaves at 6 am on december 26. i told him he is not picking them up on Christmas because that wasn't fair. but i am not too thrilled about getting a 3 and 6 year old up at 3 am to go to the airport. what should i do? i kinda feel like i am getting short changed because in order for them to even get up at 3 am they will have to go to bed very early on christmas night. im trying to be fair and reasonable....but i dont think it is ok for him to do what he is trying to do..opinions? experiences?

Do what you think is best- you don't always have to go by the agreement if you two can work something out on your own. If you don't have any plans I'd let him take them, but just do what works for you. But remember, if you're difficult with him he will more than likely be the same way with you when you want a favor from him.
