See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Heres the sitch-- My stepson is 12 and in the 6th grade. One of his friends invited him to go to Florida for Spring Break (We live in Michigan). My dh (who has sole physical and 50/50 legal custody) knows the parents. They are responsible and trustworthy people. Dh says ok but bm says no because she claims that he is too young and because she doesn't know the parents. His friends parents aren't "friends" of my husbands but he has met them and conversed with them when ss would go to his friends house or friend comes to our house. His friends mom called bm about the trip because she thought it was curtious to call both parents. She (the friends mom) told dh when she called him that bm was basically uninterested in hearing what she had to say and just said she would think about it. Last night she told ss that he couldnt go. Ss is super bummed because he really wants to go. What would you do? Does dh need bm's permission to allow him to go?
Just wanna say thanks for everyones input. There are some very valid points and Dh is talking to bm tonite or tomorrow about this. He has said that ss can't go unless bm says yes. So I guess we will see what happens....
