Originally my dad said he wanted to take 4-5 days with me, my 4 kids, 2 sisters, possibly my husband and maybe my mom. It would be at a small amusement park. Now he wants to do a 1 day trip with my brothers ex girlfriend, their 1 daughter, her 3 other kids and her boyfriends kid. I said no thanks.
I have no desire to be in a group with 9 kids 5 of which I don't know. I said we will make a day together like originally planned. My dad is now irritated.

1 mom liked this
Has he already paid for everyone, maybe? I would be mad, too, if I was trying to organize a family thing and someone backed out after I already had the details worked out.

Maybe he's disappointed bc you're his child and he wants you to suck it up to see him.

 He's the one who changed the plans without checking with anyone first.

 Why do you need to get to know your brothers ex girlfriend, her kids, and the kid of her current bf?

They're his plans to change. Grow up.

He has a right to change his plans, but you also have the right to opt out if you don't like the changes.

I wouldn't go either.

nothing was paid for. I haven't seen the ex girlfriend or her kid in like 11-12 years and would never see them again for who knows how long if ever.
