I am not so sure this is a good idea but I was advised by my lawyer that most courts would grant summer vacation with the father. We live in different states and this is the first year she is going to do this. Good news is she is only 3 hours away but I think she is starting to have a hard time with it all. She is getting real cranky and not sleeping well and doing things out of the norm. She is yelling and more easily paniced. Now I have a very amazing relationship with my daughter. She is allowed to tell me anything. I talk to her about this and ask if she is ok and I think she loves her father no doubt but is really nervous so I try to reasure her that she will have fun and I am only a phone call away. I try not to make a big deal about it because I do want her to enjoy her time with her father. I am afraid she won't stay the whole summer but both her father and I are ok with that. We understand she is only 10 and is unsure right now. She is a momma's girl and wants mommy's attention 24/7 yet she still wants to do what she wants to do! Amazing isn't it LOL Hopefully things will go ok with her.
