Hi all, I wanted to get some views on visitation. I am recently married to a man with 2 daughters - he gets visitation every other weekend. I have a son with my ex husband. New hubby's ex moved 2 hours away last year. For many reasons, we feel it was to alienate him from the children, but that is another story. My son spends every other weekend with his dad so we are very protective of our weekends together as a family. His ex used to call (or have his 4 & 7 year old call)so often about rescheduleing visits, making exceptions, etc.., that we had to put it in a court order that she only ask on rare occassion and the children be left out of the discussions. Well, that was some time ago and she behaved for a while but now she is at it again. Now we have a wedding to go to out of state and she had her now 8 year old call because a cheering competition just popped up. Its not the first or the last and this is her first year cheering. We don't want to disappont SD, but we did have plans. If we let her go, we will not see her for one month. We don't want her to miss things she enjoys but we also feel like visits are very important and special, and don't want to miss what little time we do see her. This time I think hubby is leaving it up to SD, but when do we draw the line? When do you make an exception? We try to work around special events but can't always do it.
