Ex dh just asked to take the kids to Florida for 10 days beginning on December 21. I have never been away from my kids for that long, let alone missed a holiday. Not sure what to do. Doesnt help that he says that it has to be that week as his new wife is a teacher and thats when she has available. Ugh.

Asked for a compromise. Ex isnt budging. Regardless of our issues 10 days and at least 5 parks may be too much for little kids. He has never dealt well with kid melt-downs. Standing my ground and asking that he take one of the shorter times offered.

Sadly, that's what happens when you divorce.

Is it in the custody agreement? If not, tell him no.

I'd say HELL NO!!! He can stick to the original schedule or skip seeing them. Him wanting to travel is not your problem. Men are so stupid.

That's such a shitty thing to do. Him wanting his kids to go with him is a really good thing. If the kids want to go then why not?

I'd say no. Thank God my DF believes a child should be with their mother on Holidays. He's already said if we were to split up the girls would be with me every Holiday and he would come see them Christmas morning and take the Christmas at 6 p.m. I'd panic if I didn't have my babies on the Holidays. Good luck!
