I'm looking for thoughts on how to handle birthday presents for my husband from his kids/ my step kids. Every year the ex has taken the kids shopping for gifts for him for birthday/Christmas and Father's Day. This weekend I got asked by the kids "were you planning on taking us to get gifts for our Dad?" The ex has them this weekend and I have little time tomorrow night to take them before his birthday Tuesday. It has happened one other time and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to which holiday this question comes up for. This time I responded no I wasn't planning on it, because I wasn't.
Am I wrong in assuming the kids mother will make sure the kids have gifts for them? Obviously if they show up empty handed I'll make sure they have something but what should the expectation be? How do you all handle gift giving from the step kids to their parent?
