  • Well as being someone whose parents were divorced when I was 3, I can tell you that it does make the holidays hard.. My mom and dad would alternate holidays every year and it does get confusing at times. My mom and dad would sometimes argue over who gets me that year when you come across a holiday like Thanksgiving. But on Christmas and other holidays like that my dad would get me on the holidays eve and my mom would get me on the holidays day...

    I doubt this is of any help.. But have a talk with the father of the child and see if there is some agreement to the holidays you can come to. Or if the child is old enough let the child decide who they would like to be with..

  • My brother and his ex-wife would take odd and even years. He would get all holidays on odd years, except Mother's day. His was a court agreement though. It just depends on the agreement.
