I reading in another group about this situation:
SM's grandmother is doing a family reunion/vacation to Disney world. Everyone lives in Florida so they are all close.
There are 2 stepchildren involved. Dad is NCP and has them every other weekend I believe.
The BM is refusing to allow the children to spend the full week with Dad and SM for a family vacation. BM takes the kids on vacation with her often, so they are not missing out.
Because they are unable to take the kids-DH refuses to go period.
(Everything is paid for except for souviners. I think the SM posted if the kids could go-they'd have to spring for an extra hotel room but it's doable)
If I were this SM, I'd still go-I'd take my daughter and we'd enjoy this family time with our extended family. DH is welcomed to join us if he chooses. However, I'm lucky in the sense that if we wanted to take the kids, BM would let us without any issues. But I know not everyone is that lucky.
What are your thoughts?!
