I share physical custody with my ex and I HATE when the kids are with him. He was physically abusive to me and he verbally abuses the kids. This weeks custody is weird bc of the holiday but basically he has wed-Friday. I have sat- sun and he has mon-tues. he's about to go out of town and has been asking to keep them sat and sun bc he's loosing his weekend when he goes on vaca. For me to go to Florida I would have to give it to him which means a VERY long time wo my kids (he's had them since Friday and would only see them wed for a few hours).
I feel very selfish leaving them there to go on a vacation without them. Plus financially it may not be the smartest move. I could do it but it would deplete my savings which I use to pay daycare. We would he staying with my sister so the cost would just be gas and food. Plus I'm about to take ex back to court to try to change custody bc he moved an hour away without any notice and has the kids a lot.
So, what would you do in my situation?? Would you go to Florida, or stay here so you could have the kids for 2 days????
