I am not going to give my ex permission for the vacation he wants the kids to go on

My ex told me he was planning a vacation this summer for the kids. Well we sat down to talk about the logistics. He said they were going to Tennessee. That seemed weird so I asked why. 

He said that they would be staying at a lake house. That there were jet skis and a boat and the kids would have a lot of fun. I asked who he would be staying with he said some close family friends. 

Well I found out his "close family friends" are actually his gfs family. Him and his gf have been together for 2 months. There is no way her family is close or even friends with him. I asked him again who he was staying with he said the same thing

I brought up the fact I knew it was his gf. He seemed flustered and that he knew I wouldnt say okay to it. 

He is right. My kids have no business going on a vacation with their fathers new gf who is more or less a stranger to them and staying  with her family that are strangers. If they were together for awhile than sure but this is a new relationship. I havent even met her and the kids have only met her once. 

Plus he lied flat out. 

Him and his exgf took them on vacations before. I had no problem with it but it wasnt after only two months. If the kids feel uncomfortable they will be too far away from home to be able to do anything about it. 

Sorry ex but next time dont lie and give it a bit of time before taking family vacations with a new gf. The kids also dont even want to go. They think it is weird.

Why not try meeting her? Have the kids meet her? Sounds like a good time can be had.
How old are the kids? Does the gf have kids?

You're stupid. Why should he need your permission to do anything? Because you birthed the kids? BM's like you give the rest of us a bad name.

I have no problem meeting her. The kids met her once. 

They wont be going this soon to stay with her family. None of us are comfortable with it. 

The kids are 12 and 13

I dont even know if she has kids

Yes but the only differences were that it was the dad's wife (not girlfriend) and from her point of view. BM didn't like the idea of her kids going to a lake house belonging to her family with jet skis and SM was here to complain about it on Cafemom.
