I hate making mistakes. Tonight, after the X dropped our daughter off with me I made mistake number one and answered the phone when she called me three minutes later.
Less than one month in, she proposed changing the schedule already. 2-3-2 upsets her and her children every other Sunday when she has to point out that one is different than the other three and bring her to me. She suggested making the three day stretch be Friday night through Sunday night. Currently I see my daughter all but two days a month, every other Saturday. So off the bat she is proposing I double that essentially. She says it's hard for her to leave her siblings. I don't doubt that it is, but I also don't doubt that mother is not at all helping the situation in any way. Where I screwed up is informing her that this is the situation she initiated, so I don't want to hear that suddenly she's worried about her daughter's best interest. I don't buy it. It's all about the X not wanting to deal with anything.
I screwed up by reacting emotionally rather than just saying "we have an agreement in place I am OK with" I will do better.
