Personally if it was me, if I had it in writing that she agreed to the time/day I'd just stick to whatever I had in writing. If she did it verbally I'd stick to the letter of the law (7:45 it seems).

Either way, it's not worth losing sleep over. I would never tell the kids about it no matter what happens, that's not their concern.

Sounds like your ex is as much as a witch as mine. This year my ex told me a day before the 4th that she would be taking the kids for her 10 day summer vacation with them. Per the court order she was supposed to give me her vacation date back in May...

I did not complain, I just wrote it down in my witch diary for our next court date.

I was however disappointed because I had cool plans for them. Being divorced with kids you love really sucks.

Always be positive about it with your kids, it gets better. My S16 now is my best friend (that's good and bad sometimes -- lol). The DGAF attitude helped a lot re: my ex... and now things are rolling in life (good).

Data wrote:Yes, follow the divorce decree to the letter. Explain to the kids mom won't let them stay for a fun day and for fireworks like she agreed to let happen. Tell them there will be other holidays. If divorce decree says 12 noon & to meet somewhere, do it even if it upsets your plans. If the swap place is not specified in the decree, make the swap the least convenient for her.


Umm, tell the kids that mom and dad talked and decided ... bla bla bla
