My older two and I were talking last night (16 and 14) and they told me how their dad is still trying to convince them to come live with him. Lovely. They keep talking and it comes out that they don't want to go for spring break or summer visitation. Double lovely. Now I get to figure out how to tell ex that they aren't coming for visitation, he can't force the issue because our divorce decree says "visitation as agreed upon by both parents". So the kids are safe but now I get to deal with the d/a ex. Any suggestions on how to tell him?
Oh, and the smart kids part. One of the things they brought up last night was how their dad talks trash about people (me included of course). One of the things they were commenting on is how he gives his wife's sister a hard time about remarrying only 6 months after her divorce was final. I just started laughing. They asked how long after our divorce was final did he remarry. I couldn't stop laughing so I held up 6 fingers. They asked 6 months, I shook my head, they asked 6 years, I shook my head, the said 6 weeks? I nodded and they started laughing too. Yeah, smart kids.
